It’s telling...

The words we use.

The worlds we create.

The characters we love.

The loves we lose.

The tales we twist.

The choices we regret.

The friends we betray.

The people we invite, and the roles we play.

The promises we keep, and the ones we refuse to make.

Stories tell us who we are.

When we tell stories together, it tells us even more.

Mote is a text-centered, real-time storytelling platform that magically weaves what you and your friends write into a living story.
