Having been exposed to much literature recently has reawoken a deep desire to write my own book. I have often toyed with the idea of doing my own interactive story or an autobiography, both of which appeal to me right now. I think in all honesty the former would be a better idea as it’s others work of this kind I have dabbled in, most recently proof reading and play testing Jonathan Green’s upcoming book, The Wicked Wizard Of Oz. (Available for pre order on Amazon)
I’ve chosen this option, and ideas are beginning to pop in my mind and I can see the story’s structure taking shape. Im making notes and next I shall plot out the sequences. The big question is, do I bother with a combat system? Many fans of this genre fess up to not bothering with associated dice rolls and prefer to assume they been successful in any opposing sequence encountered. Lighter books of this genre such as Choose Your Own Adventure and Time Machine don’t bother with this mechanic. It will surely make it easier to write as well.
That said, its time for lunch soall the best, Jam out!
