Welcome to Basher!

Basher is a collaborative storytelling website. Every user gets to contribute one word to each story, then other users vote on which words make it in. Soon full stories evolve, unique collaboritive works of art.

What is a "Basher"? American author Kurt Vonnegut said there were two types of writers: Swoopers and Bashers. Swoopers continually refine and revise their stories, "painstakingly, fixing everything that is just plain awful or doesn’t work." But Bashers only move forward. They write carefully, word by word, getting every sentence just right, so that "when they’re done, they’re done." Vonnegut considered himself a Basher, and so we carry on his tradition, in an all-new way.
