Welcome

So this is the starting page of the "1kstory"-project.

The idea behind 1kstory is to encourage creative writing.

We all have a story to share, be it fictional or documentary. Sometimes it's so good you want to tell the whole world. Not seldom we start off with an intention to get the story down in print, or at least on screen. But curiously enough the story will start to grow into a project and somewhere in the process you get stuck or lost in your own ambitions.

Why? Becausee that's the problem. Ambition.

While getting your story out might be your ambition, you shouldn't be forced to let a tedious, and sometimes, life long process of putting the correct words in the perfect order for hundreds of pages to share it.

We at 1kstory.com love stories, wether it's about building them, sharing them or just reading them. At the same time we find it frustrating to never finishing them when everything really is about having something to tell. So the simple idea was born.

Keep it short.

Aim for 500 words, or at most 1 000*, and be done with it. After all, to paraphrase a pioneer: "1k should be enough for anyone."

*1 000, or 1k, in computer terms is 1024, so 1kstory would loosely mean 1024-word-story.
