Choose Your Own Adventure
Choose Your Own Adventure is a series of children's gamebooks where each story is written from a second-person point of view, with the reader assuming the role of the protagonist and making choices that determine the main character's actions and the plot's outcome. The series was based on a concept created by Edward Packard and originally published by Constance Cappel's and R. A. Montgomery's Vermont Crossroads Press as the "Adventures of You" series, starting with Packard's Sugarcane Island in 1976.

[close] My New Year's Resolution was to write more, but as is prone to happen with these kind of things, I haven't even started. Then I had a sudden memory of a story I once found by accident many years ago. I think I was reading Paradise Lost at the time, and trying to find a summary. Anyway, the story was Alby: A choose your own adventure story by Reid Faylor, where he would write a chapter and then ask his audience what should happen next in a poll. The popular vote would then influence the narrative the next week. It was awesome and I'm going back to read it. It's been a while and I think it's since been completed. Point is, I've since started writing out little stories that follow a similar format-both in my other groups and on sheets of lined notebook paper for my younger sister- I want to do that here. So, first things first. Check out Alby here: http://community.sparknotes.com/2015/01/13/alby-a-choose-your-own-adventure-index, then take the polls below and leave your comments to get this experiment going. Thanks!
