Welcome to Storybook Month! We have multiple different fun activities happening right now for you to partake in. Yes, you heard that right! Right now! In the Storybook Forum

    Sky Pirates Vs. Sky Ninjas
      That’s right! That eternal and hilarious struggle has returned! This time, in the form of a tagbook. Weird things are happening, though, and it’s like you’re seeing doppelgangers of yourself…
  • On Stolen Wings
      A YWU Storybook by @ScarlettFire!
      A group of dragon riders must go on a quest to find out why there's been so few recruits lately and uncover a plot for world domination by the secretive and destructive Conclave.
  • Aether’s Heart
      A YWU Storybook by @Omnom!
      When an ancient city rises once again from the sands to the south, a forgotten prophecy spells doom to humanity unless a group of adventurers can delve deep within the shifting sands and recover a dead gods heart.
  • Pokemon: New Horizon
      What’s this? A Pokemon Storybook? Run by @AstralHunter? It’s more likely than you think!
      Twelve Cities
      Thirty-Six Events
      Three Champions
      Countless Memories
  • Dynasty Undying
      This is a Sci-Fi Pirate Power Struggle Storybook run by @Omnom! Claim your right to the throne to the universe.
  • Treasure Hunt!
      That’s right! Pirate @Featherstone was clumsy and tripped stashed away some of our precious pirate treasure within the Storybook forums, and now it’s anyone’s game to claim!
  • DTWH Contest
      Pirate @Magestorrow has decided to have you butt heads put your heads together and co-write in her new challenge. Whoever has the best story is crowned the DTWH victor!
  • YWU
      While not just a Storybook Month exclusive, Young Writers Universe is a collaborative universe that allows writers to craft their own stories in the same universe and shape it together.
  • Workshops, Write-ins, & Events, Oh My!
      That’s not all! We have multiple Workshops about roleplaying, Storybooks, and more, Official Write-Ins, and Challenges to keep you enthralled all month! Subscribe to this thread to see when we have a new event coming up!

Any questions, comments, or anything in between, leave them here!

The Treasure Hunt is on! Search the seas, mateys, and find ye treasure!
“Turning and turning in the widening gyre,
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed on the world."
~ W.B. Yeats


Happy Pride Month

Like with NaNoWriMo, NaPoWriMo, and RevMo here on the site, you can record your progress with storybooking over in the Storybook Month Record Thread. Due to the Storybook Section being so varied, you have a plethora of ways to get your month of SBMo goodness in.

  • 1 Storybook (SB) Created OR
  • 1 Storybook (SB) Post OR
  • 5 Discussion Thread (DT) Posts OR
  • 3 Roleplay Realm (RR) Posts OR
  • 3 Double Trouble Writing Huddle (DTWH) Posts OR
  • Attend a Workshop


There's also a handy log format you can copy-and-paste to keep track of all of your achievements. And, if you haven't been doing any of these daily, activities you do one day can carry over to the others if it goes over the requirements - four storybook posts made on the same day can count for four days, rather than only being counted for that first day.

without having an impact on

and you have to decide what kind
of difference you want to make.”

Ahoy, mateys!

Pirates @Featherstone and @Magestorrow are running a workshop on on the basics of storybooking. We'll be going over the differences between roleplays, Double-Trouble Writing Huddle threads and storybooks, while also giving some tips on how to write each type. Alternatively, you can treat it as a Q&A session and ask us whatever questions about storybooking.

It'll run for two hours at most, but you're free to drop whenever you'd like!

We hope to see you there!
