This paper reports on an action research study aimed at implementing "Plotagon" to enhance English writing skill. The study involved 18 students from 10th grade of a public secondary school in Colombia. The findings showed that the use of "Plotagon" promoted students' motivation to write through an interactive and attractive interphase to create digital stories. Consequently, students created their own digital story working in pairs and as a result increased their vocabulary, improved their English writing skill and other language skills. The data collection tools (surveys, tests, journals, observations, and dialogs as students' production) showed that "Plotagon" is a pedagogical tool that promotes students' English writing in a fun and meaningful way
