Introducing muser - A Beautiful Inspiration App for Writers
February 23, 2012 in Productivity
[prMac.com] Los Angeles, California - Ready Made Wonder LLC, has announced the release of muser 1.0, its first productivity app for iOS devices. muser is a beautiful and fun inspiration App for fiction writers. It works like a large deck of cards full of photos and ideas that you shuffle to come up with a story. Every time you shake or swipe your device, muser picks one photograph and 3 idea cards at random. Then it's up to the writer to think about how they might fit together to make a story. There are 350 photos and 8 categories of idea cards, each with 100 different ideas. There are millions of possible combinations.
The idea for muser came to designer and developer Dan Barrio while he was enrolled in a year long sketch comedy writing program at The Second City Los Angeles Training Center. "During the program, we would use a lot of improv games and techniques to free associate story ideas. I thought it would be fun to have an App that created a similar experience where you had to justify how these random elements might fit together as a story." says Dan Barrio.
The 350 photographs have been selected from 6 different photographers around the world to provide an interesting mix of places, objects and scenarios. The 8 categories of idea cards have 100 different variations each and can be a simple as a single word, a short phrase or the beginning of a line. They are designed to get the writer thinking about character, conflict and plot in surprising and indirect ways.
