2017 Serial Story – You Vote, I Write

Hello My Imaginary Friends,

For the past three years I’ve written a monthly short story. The idea is to challenge myself and give you an interesting story every month. I don’t plan it in advance and I don’t edit past chapters unless I screw up a name or important fact.

This year I thought I’d do things a little differently and ask you to fill out a group of polls to help me build a brand new story.

I’ll keep these polls up until January, when I’ll write the first part.

Thank you in advance!

Check out the last three years worth of serial stories:

2014 – The Ridiculous Adventures of Felix Felicis
The story of a man who likes things neat and organized who gets dragged across time and space.

2015 – Only Human
The story of an ordinary-ish human, who enrols in Monster University to find her sister’s killer, but finds love instead.

2016 – Wargrave Island
Trapped on an island in the middle of Lake Ontario, this ten-year high school reunion will have more than just drunken antics, it’ll have murder. An homage to And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie.

Sharing is awesome!
