....aaand that's the end of the month for all! How'd you do?
I somehow managed to finish my story, The Abyss. I hope others managed to get some work done as well! I still need to format it in Twine and add some polish, but it should be up on here eventually...
See ya'll next year!

It looks like 2012 is here! Time for New Year's resolutions, and mine is to finish my ongoing choose-your-own-adventure story by the end of this month. What about you? Any special resolutions?
Let's get this year off to a great start!

So it looks like after all that exhaustive NaNoWriMo work, I'll be trying to set up this site for January. Except to see some new additions around the site, especially new info on text-adventure games, something I really got into this year.
I'm also trying to decide on a website banner design and/or icon. If you have any suggestions feel free to comment on here or send me a message!
I think this year'll be a blast.

Like is says, January's over. Looking back, it seems like it's passed so fast! Do you feel like it passed quickly, or February took forever to get here? Well now you can pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for making it past January. Sure, you might have done it many times before, but THIS time you've also participated in Choose-Your-Own-Novel Month. It takes bravery and determination to even sign up for something like this, so I'd like to congratulate and thank everyone for their participation. I hope you keep up the wonderful style of choose-your-own-adventure stories in the future.
Also, come to the forums here to discuss post-January happenings and how you've done: In the End.
Thanks again! Have a great February!

It's a week since January began. Haven't started yet? That's fine. Have started already? ...well I don't want to take sides here. So like the title says, it's time to get to work!
Do you like starting a new project, or picking up and continuing old works? How does starting a new story make you feel? Nervous? Excited? Apprehensive? Intimidated?
Well have no fear! You've already made yourself at home in Week 1. You wouldn't want all of that to go to waste, now, would you? Of course you wouldn't. You've got yourself a nice place to call a home. Now it's time to take the plunge and actually keep this up. Give yourself a plan and try to be faithful to it. If you've planned out your story, promise yourself you'll finish writing that scene by the end of the week. If not, give yourself a word quota - either a daily or weekly one. The month is far from over, but that doesn't mean you don't have to work!
Let's see if you can keep up with your goal until my entry next week. I dare you to try.

The new year has officially begun! And that means that it's time to start typing away. And although I probably should have, I still haven't started my typing for the month. I've just got these documents open, waiting to be written. After I finish this first entry I'll probably get to work.
I'm going to try and write an entry about once a week on here just discussing one topic of writing. And since this is the first week, I figured I'd start with the first part of writing: finding a place to write. I don't know about you, but I can always write better with a certain atmosphere. I like to be alone, I want that certain music playing, and I want to know that no one's going to distract me. I even prefer certain temperatures over others.
Finding a place that you know you can write better in is very important. Some people can write when they're distracted or there's lots of noise around them. I have to do so often. But when everything's just right, when you've got all that you need and lots of time on your hands and you're prepared to write long into the day or long into the night, that to me is when I truly enjoy writing.
How about you? Do you need a certain atmosphere when writing or can you write anywhere? do you have a special notebook or pencil that you could never do without? Maybe you only like typing in Google Docs. Or you can only type at night. What do you have to do to create that perfect setting?

So this is the beginning! The beginning of a tradition, of something that shall persevere for years to come. Or at the very least, a motivation to keep up writing. I made this site because I feel that choose-your-own-adventure stories are one of the hardest things to write, the fun-est to read, and are very rare in today's society. Now if you wanted to do something about making choices there are so many other options to picking up that old choose-your-own-adventure book and reading it. Things like video games have quickly replaced older forms of getting away from reality for a while.
Choose-your-own-adventure stories make you think. They let you realize that your choices do have repercussions. They make you consider every option before making a move. And they're fun to read.
And now, January, you get the chance to write your own. Good luck to every participant, and I hope you have a good time!
