Recently learned about Word Tamer, a creative writing flash tool online that allows students to work on creative writing aspects, from genre and plot to character development. Mini activities on Word Tamer are cleverly circus themed: Prowl through Plot, Snare a Setting, Capture a Character and Wild Words. Each of the activities would be a fun way to introduce creative writing to students, and allow students to interact with elements of the process in carnival game style setting.

Here are some screenshots to get a better idea. As you can see, the graphics are well done, and allow for some creative play with creative writing:
