Do people here prefer a story following an original character, or following a story with themselves inserted? I feel sort of hindered writing "You" all the time and am not sure if it affects how my writing is or not. I would just like to know what is the preferred kind of story, if in second-person(involving the reader) or another point of view for original characters.
You should just get used to "you." It's fine, it's invisible when you use it in interactive fiction, and no player will mistake the "you" for themselves unless you actively encourage that sort of thing.
I'm reminded of my all-time favorite student comment on a paper that something in a poem "actually made me feel as if I was in the room eating soup with the grandma" or something like that. That always makes me concerned for them.
Thank you for the advice, I'll use it well!
Characters with personality are cool
But sometimes storygames that are more game than story can sort of benefit from having a protagonist whose details are left a bit vague, and the reader can have fun filling in the blanks for themselves.
With that said, I think the majority of people like to immerse themsleves with a character that they can relate with but isnt some weird self insert.
If its using the word "you" there are plenty of ways to change the sentence around or use descriptions and character senses that let you avoid the great wall of you.
There are also some good third person cyoas like Unbroken and Father Leafwine is Dead if you want to read those and get an idea how to pull it off.
Thank you for your input!
Okay! Thank you.
That's strong wording, but I see where you are coming from.
When was the deadline exactly
I dont know I probably thought I had already run out of time but probably didnt actually until....well, not that long ago
Works for me!
Sorry for such a late reply! Thank you very much, that makes me feel more confident.
I'm sorry you feel that way :[
I didn't wait, I just lost motivation and had life matters to attend to. I didn't expect anyone else to answer.
