Heh, yeah 12k is very small. This is basically all introduction and setting the stage so far. The plan is to have around 90k for the total book, though with choices and things, you can end up with quite a bit more than expected.
I started reading the Choice of games about a month ago, always been a fan of game books. Then my daughter told me that they were looking for writers. (She’s 10 but loves them as well.)
I love writing, and I have a computer science and English background
So yeah, about 5 days ago I decided to start coding my first ChoiceScript book. Have been on a steady 1500-2k words a day so far.
I am sure it will actually be more like 3 months to finish, but if I set myself a timeline I am more likely to finish.
The transition happens fairly quickly, you move out, go to University. Nightmares happen, things are a bit off…You become involved in a sinister cabal working under the guise of education.
That whole thing.
