An Idea

Is it wrong of me to want to write a middle grade Choose Your Own Adventure in which all paths lead to gruesome death?

I know when I read those things (and I did. I so did), that if I ended up dying I would backtrack and then choose a different path until I got to a happy ending. How infuriating would it be if there was no happy ending?


If you didn't click the link, do so. It's funny and apparently I'm not the only one to consider this idea.


And while I was searching for an image I came across this:

Choose Your Own Adventure Books That Never Quite Made It.

What a great way to waste twenty minutes.

Oh thank you so much for that. I needed a good laugh (and a good way to waste 20 minutes).

I'm still laughing about the polar bear one...

Shaun Hutchinson said...

Awesome!!! I needed a good laugh.

I think you should write one that results in every choice leading to a previous scenario. That way the book would never end, just an endless loop.

I just read a book titled BEFORE I FALL in which the teen keeps living the same day over and over again. It's the day she dies.

I can't click the link because my family must eat.

Some kids don't mind violence especially if there were humor involved.

I have so much to do and am procrastinating like crazy. I really wish you would've posted something new here that would've challenged my mind for hours...not a link...I only like celebrity links. Speaking of which (horrors), I'm starting to not like Taylor Swift. Her songs are all sounding alike to me and her voice really isn't that good. It's like an Emperor's Clothes thing that I'm waking up from...maybe Kanye was seeing the real thing all along (although, that whole episode was rude no matter what). I've never had a grammar class in my life, so I don't like your grammar posts. But it's your blog. Just saying.
