Ooooh, tell me what that's like when you wake up! How are you supposed to sleep when you know that people are going to be monitoring you?

I'm busy running a fever over here and writing a Mario fanfic. Don't you just love being sick? It's greaaaaaat.
Well, I posted this a month ago, so I've definitely woken up by now. Did your post get caught in a time warp? :P It went fine, but I had a really hard time falling asleep.

You're running a fever and writing? You are a much stronger woman than I. :lol:

Please take a minute today to think on the ultimate sacrifice of so many men and women. And, if you see a veteran, please just tell them thank you.

Yesterday I was walking down the stairs carrying wayyyyyyy to many books. I trip and now my toe is broken. (Note to self don't carry to many books down the stairs.) So a lesson for you all. Don't carry books.

Just out of random curiosity, how many of y'all would be interested in one of those choose-your-own-adventure game apps with a Christian storyline and emphasis?

Weellllll.....

I may or may not be contracted to write one by a company that may or may not be producing it. It's in a very sketchy stage at this point, but I figured some feedback from the target audience might be useful.

Wow! That's an honor! I personally would probably not choose a choose-your-own-adventure app as a first pick, but my nephews would. A Christian one would be amazing, just so they are not surrounded by "worldly" apps and adventures.

As someone who plays choose-your-own-adventures, I must admit they are pretty non-Christian in some parts. :( But that's why I'm here: to make an alternative for people who want good, clean, well-written content! :D I'm starting off rn with a generic high school drama, but I might switch to fantasy if there's more of a market for that. Werewolf stories are apparently very popular. O.o

....Christian werewolf stories...

That's almost like the genre "Christian Horror."

LOL I meant I'd try fantasy (NOT WEREWOLF) because fantasy as a genre seems kinda popular? Not that I'm against Christian werewolf stories. I think it'd be interesting, but so many of them seem to focus on sex instead of the more interesting aspects. I once read a Hardy Boys novel that was about a guy who thought he was a werewolf but he was actually schizophrenic and it was really good.

The original Hardy Boys series is so good. Same for Nancy Drew. Both are mostly very wholesome and educational, as well as fun and entertaining.

And I would definitely agree that fantasy does seem to have increasing popularity...

Oh lors, I just love that one Hardy Boys where they get the shriveled heads as part of a museum collection. And that time Biff Hooper joined a cult as a ruse to get the cult leader arrested. And that one where they went to Ireland and ran into a bunch of weirdo Diana worshipers.

Old Hardy Boys is EPIC. \:D/

Never read any of those, but I'm getting strong "Carmen Sandiego" vibes from them (which is an extremely good thing).
