Decide Your Doom
These stories are like the old Choose Your Own Adventure books.
This was a quick and dirty experiment. Most of the art comes from stock images and there’s a lot about the font size and presentation that I’m not happy with. However, I do like the concept. I have one more of these Decide Your Doom Pocket Edition stories that I’ll share next week.
I’m thinking about making a longer, more involved Decide Your Doom story with better art, a more legible layout, and different paths you can take with multiple steps before you find an ending. Would you be interested in a Choose Your Own Adventure-style book written for an older audience? Please let me know in the comments!
Make Cool Stuff
I love reading very short stories. I love to see how writers can build worlds and enchanting stories in just a few lines.
One of my favorite Twitter accounts is @MicroFlashFic. This account publishes 3 new, tweet-sized stories every day. Jesse Stanchak, the writer behind @MicroFlashFic also recently published a collection of his greatest hits. He writes stories in all kinds of genres.
Another one of my favorite writers of short fiction is Dascha Paylor. Dascha also writes in a bunch of different genres. Her stories are often a bit longer than a tweet, but rarely take more than two minutes to read. However, she packs in so much interesting detail and world-building, that I often go back and reread her stories several times.
She has a free Subtack called Fiction in 50 where she publishes here incredible stories a few times a week. You should go and subscribe to her newsletter right now!
I am currently working on a collaboration with Dascha. I’m creating a comic strip from one of my favorites of her stories. It should be finished soon!
Thanks for reading!
Be the weird you want to see in the world!
