My Nervous Newbie Introduction

Hi, I'm Thomas La Homme and I came across this site and thought this would be a great place to try to create an interactive story. My only experience with this sort of thing were aborted attempts at Choose Your Own Adventure role-playing games I'd worked on as a teenager in the 80's. Since then, I've only written poetry, lyrics, and stories. It may be a while before I present anything on this site (I can be a painfully slow writer at times). I'm going to be spending the next few weeks going over the articles on the game mechanics and how to get them to work-- it was easier for writers back in the day when you just told the reader "If you want to go through the wooden door, go to page 34" or "Go to 34". I am interested in the options that allow the reader to collect items. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself. I am happy sites like these exist since I never got over the bug for gamebooks since I first discovered them when I was in Junior High School.

Welcome to the site!

CYOAs can be a lot of work to complete if you're new to writing them, the way they're structured means they can be pretty quick to get away from you. Reading through the Top Rated storygames might give you an idea what the editor's capable of. (and of course a lot are just fun to read)

Drop by the Writing Workshop if you need any advice or feedback on your work, and the Advanced Editor board is there for more specific scripting questions once you've gone over the articles.

Thanks. I'll probably need a lot of help just getting starting. I seem to have a lot of ideas but not enough focus. Better to start with something small, I guess.
