During my childhood, I would’ve preferred to spend more time playing and pretending then reading. But it’s not to say, I still loved to read when I found something that kept my attention.
One of my favorite series as a kid were the Choose Your Own Adventure series. Looking back now the writing is silly but when I was young it was just so much fun. And like you (admit it) I did cheat every time I read one of those books.
There was a point in my career where I thought I could write a series like the CYOA. I’ve always wondered how they put together multiple stories into one block. Did they use outlines? Did they write a bunch of stories and just overlay them? For the next podcast, I’m gonna find out.
What were your favorite books growing up as a kid?
