Hi, everybody! K. A. Parker here with a humble inquiry.
Okay. Maybe not a humble inquiry. More like an idea that’s been bouncing around in my head for some time that’s gotten traction due to my interest in Critical Role and interactive storytelling, as of late.
Here’s the thing: I know that I’ve been writing flash fiction of a thousand words or less every Friday for a year or so, and while it’s been good for exercising my creative muscle and coming up with original ideas every week, I want to take it to the next level. Instead of doing one-shot fiction every week, I want to change things up. And I want to join you, my dear readers, to join for the ride.
I’m taking inspiration from Megan over at Invisible World who recently completed draft two of her novel The Hashna Stone, which was based on a serialized story she wrote in 2016. Readers of the story would get to vote in a poll on the blog and decide what happened next in the story, so in that sense, it’s like a choose-your-own-adventure story, but without the multiple endings.
I’d like to do something similar, but I want to know if any of you guys would be interested in reading and participating in something like that. In other words, rather than writing one-shot flash fiction pieces every Friday, I would write one long story and have you vote on what happens next. For example, if I write a chapter where a protagonist has to choose between wielding a sword or a staff, you’d be able to vote for which weapon they wield and other decisions like that.
If this interests you, please let me know by liking this post and/or leaving a comment. I’m interested in hearing what you guys think!
Anyway, that’s it from me. See you on the next post 🙂
