I like reading more than writing, but looking forward to improving on the writer side of things (hopefully). Participating in the welcome to the jungle contest, hoping I meet minimum site standards.

I'd say I'm average in terms of writing (at absolute best), but I do have a slight fascination with CYOA (at least from a reader's perspective) and I am really curious about the different ways the medium can be used in order to represent a story. I believe there is no right way to write a CYOA. Some CYOAs are more like games, some choose to use the player's choices to dictate their morals, and many other ways I've seen that CYOA writers use choices to make the narrative more interesting. I hope I don't disappoint too much, and I promise I'm trying to put in effort whenever I write something - I'm just not good at it yet. 

Will I ever get an avatar? No.

Will I ever write a good story? Probably not.

Will I stop being self-depricating? No.

Will I learn how to spell deprecating correctly? Also nope.

Stuff came up so I probably won't be here for a while starting from the 15th (maybe a couple months, but at least a month), meaning probably won't be able to submit something for the contest, unless if I rush it up quickly from now (13th July).

(Will delete all that once I have the time to be somewhat active)

Ah saw the chaos contest so thought it was possible, worth the try at least.

Would it be ok to raise my bet by 9972, or is it too late now/would that put me too far in the negative? Going in the negative might encourage a little less procrastination, and actually getting something done on top of the whole pit of shame thing.

BardinDvorak (I think that's his/her/their username off the top of my head) has a CYS extension. Then go into My Stuff -> Profile then you should see a CYS theme option and choose it to dark theme after you install the extension.

I mean at least you had already started writing something, that's more than some people (including me). By the way, one error I saw when reading over what you have of your submission so far is you seem to keep writing 'you're' (the contraction of you are) as your (suggests possession). I don't know if it was a typo, or due to lack of understanding of the language - that's why I brought it up (it's a common mistake to use homophones incorrectly, especially if English isn't your first language).

I can read all genres but mostly read Horror.

I'm Acratios. I'm new to the site, but I have been writing CYOAs for around 2-3 months now (and been writing 'normal' flash fictions for around 2 years). I love reading, and can't wait to get to know you folks.
