When I was in school my English teacher used to play a game with us. It was really simple: she would start a story and every student continued that story one by one. It was fun little game with unexpected and sometimes dumb results. Well we were kids so, what do you expect. Being an introvert I never really enjoyed it because you had to stand up in whole class and speak your dumb lines you came up with.

But as time passed I came to realization that how much that stupid little game can affect your imagination. Slowly the material that students came up with improved and stories were not anymore fantasy where unicorns killed everyone (I really said it one time). 

Fast forward to now, I wanted something like this. But found no luck finding something like this which worked in a way I wanted. That's when I decided to make Fibhub. A platform where you write together. You can read stories that others/you started and at last page you will be able to contribute to story. Every contribution a.k.a 'Fib' should be in the range of 200 to 1000 characters and you can contribute to a story as many time as you wish. Limit of 200 to 1000 is just enough to encourage new writers and as stories are written in front of you, reading is also not a problem. You can also vote to stories, fibs and comments which will earn you 'Reputations'.

I want to encourage writing and reading because it is best way invoke your imagination and creativity. In the world of Instagram and Facebook where we are more connected but most disconnected, something like this can help us. 

If you like the concept or what I am trying to do than please visit Fibhub. Start some stories and most importantly contribute to other stories. Happy fibbing. 

Thanks for reading!

      @basilesamel Well it is out now in Beta - https://fibhubapp.com. May be next month I will do a full release. I did launch on PH - https://www.producthunt.com/posts/fibhub but messed up timing. PH use pacific timezone and I posted according to my timezone.
      200WaD is really an inspiration in design as well as concept. It was one of the reason I got back to writing and reading.
      Thank you for making 200WaD!
