Hi everybody, I'm Alexis. :^)

I've been lurking here since ~2018, and finally made an account to say hi (and contribute to the newest prompt challenge)! I've written a couple cyoa games over the past few years with Twine, and am pushing myself this year to actually publish things.

Outside of writing, I spend a lot of time hanging out with my cats, dancing, and granolamaxxing.

Welcome! I look forward to your contributions and your upcoming contest entry. 

 

If I might be so bold, what is 'granolamaxxing'?

Thank you - I'm looking forward to reading your contest entry too! :^)

Granolamaxxing is more or less being a hippie...without forsaking deodorant & actually washing your hair. But more importantly, I just make & eat a lot of granola.

Hello. Do you have any granola recipes to share?

Hi All!

I do! I've been using the vanilla almond granola recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction as a base and just subbing in whatever mix ins I'm feeling that week. If you add cocoa powder, cherries, and cut up a lil bit of chocolate to mix in once it cools off... >>>

Chocolate cherry granola sounds pretty good. Now I want chocolate cherry oatmeal cookies.

Granola is a food suitable for rodents.

Cookies would be good though yes.

Can we see your Twine games? Do they have actual choices, or do they do that weird Twine culture thing where they're 300 words of linear microfiction about being gay and depressed, but still get uploaded to an IF database. (Really it's okay if they do. You're in a better place now. We will fix you.)

I'd love to, but unfortunately most of them aren't actually finished. :^(

Finishing the incomplete ones are *also* on my to-do list this year, so we'll see if that actually gets done. Does the fact that the ones about being gay and depressed were more than 300 words and not always linear help my case?

(I appreciate the support, it means a lot. Those were dark times.)

Good morning, welcome. The name Alexis sounds familiar but I'll assume you're a different one. I wish you all of the luck and none of the procrastination
