The story is written, the nodes are written, the endings are written. The main part that’s left is to number and link nodes.
Maybe I got lazy? I don’t know. While there are a lot of paths and a lot of endings, several choices funnel into one particular node, but part of that was wanting to avoid the quantum nature of a lot of CYOA type books. You get captured by the slavers, you end up going to auction. And I wasn’t going to write totally different slave auctions for every variation on getting captured. If I were writing classic CYOA style nodes with 50-150 words per node, maybe I would’ve done it differently, but some of these nodes are as long as 700 words.
42 nodes and 12 endings.
Yay. This is one of the first real writing projects I ever ‘finished’ since I decided not to write a 10th book in the fantasy cycle I’d written when I was in highschool.
