What is CYOS?
Welcome to Choose-Your-Own-Simventure! This is the nexus where writers of SimLit can compile their interactive stories. You may start reading by clicking on any of the links given by contributors in the next post. There are a number of prompts to get you started. Please comment if you want to reserve a prompt for your story.
You can also suggest a writing prompt that you want to use yourself! The story can be based off your current series or a completely original one. As for the theme, anything goes! It can be romance, comedy, dark, or anything you want! Once you complete your story, post your link here so that I can link it to the prompt that you reserved and add it to the nexus.How do I write this kind of story?
You can use Wordpress or any other blogging tool, but I highly recommend
for creating interactive stories.Any tips or suggestions?
When writing your story, try to use the second-person perspective as much as possible to immerse the reader. I also recommend having multiple choices, paths, and outcomes to give readers interesting choices.List of prompts: (You can suggest more!)
