Choose Your Adventure

A writer is someone who can make a riddle out of an answer. ~Karl Kraus

I have to admit to feeling a bit like my NaNo novel is one of those old "Choose Your Adventure" books. I'm at a spot right now where my heroine is on her own in the woods and I want something to happen, but I'm just not sure WHAT. And in my head I see:

1. If you want her to be kidnapped by the bad guys, turn to page 47

2. If you want her to be attacked by an unknown stranger, turn to page 102

3. If you want her to find an abandoned bear cub, turn to page 83
The problem is, I can't just flip ahead and see which of these has the desired outcome. I have to write it. And I don't want to write all three... so... ACK! Which adventure do I choose for my girl?

Speaking of which, I need to get back to her. I "overslept" this morning -- didn't get up until 5 a.m. (probably had something to do with the dog waking me up at 12:45 a.m. to go out -- messed with my internal clock) and haven't done any writing yet.

Have a great day!

========================

You Are Marcia Brady

Confident yet kind. Popular yet down to earth. You're a total dream girl.
You've got the total package - no wonder everyone's a little jealous of you.


Ha! Marcia, Marcia, Marcia... LOL...

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia... I got Jan.

I'm not going to get much done today. We're heading off to the inlaws for the day.

Good luck in your decision. I like the cub choice. :)

I loved those Choose Your Own Adventure books even though they drove me insane!

I'm Jan Brady

Brainy and a little introverted, you tend to think life is a lot worse than it actually is.
And while you may think you're a little goofy looking, most people consider you to be a major babe.


Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! *g*

Good luck with your decision on which adventure to take your heroine.

I'm Jan, who was my favorite Brady.

Have a good Sunday.

Those choose your own adventure books are so cool. Seems like that would make a good DVD. Choose your own movie!

Good luck with your choice. I'm kinda partial to bear cubs ;)

I'd be tempted to play with all three...

Brandy said...

Ooh, fun choices. But which one seems to interest YOU the most?

As for the quiz, I got as far as question number 2 when it asked what I would wear and I read the choices and thought "oh, heck no!". So I stopped. Sorry! *G*

Have a pleasant evening!
