I did enjoy it on the discord! But I love the idea of having it serialized here. I know a lot of folks who have moved their fanfiction Twitter drabbles to specific channels in their own discord so I think that or here is my preference and here it’s like a fun little treat when I get your notifications.

Yes! I think Discord is a good option, but that space has a lot going on and sometimes overwhelms me (in that way, it’s similar to Twitter 😅), so I prefer here but would pop into the discord more often if it ends up there 💗

As someone who is SO EASILY OVERWHELMED by Discord, I feel this viscerally.

Awesome! Thank you for the insights, Kaite!

I would prefer to play here through polls. It's so hard to do things via live video.

I love the idea of it being here on Substack!

I’d like to try here! The discord is a great option too but it can be overwhelming (like others have pointed out). I think the comments may be easier to navigate too as we problem solve and push for our next move

I want to suggest Threads, but I know that not many people are on it and it doesn't yet have full capability. Also without a poll function it would have to be a like/re-thread to choose and I'm not sure you can end the abilty to do that.

This was my convoluted way of saying let's do it here. :)

I’m happy either way. I liked the conversations we had on the discord, but I liked the pure chaos that comes from straight polls. Maybe we could switch back and forth?

Happy no matter where. I think for me, I'm in Discord regularly and would miss occasionally if ot was on substack. But Im also capable of change.

But it could also come to your email everyday in Substack? 🤔 would that help?

For most that probably solves it. I am likely an outlier, but I have a secondary email I use just for for author/book mailings that I check like 1-2 times a week. Case in point, I saw this notification Sep. 4. That's a me problem and does not need to be a you problem.

I’m not on discord, so my preference would be for here lol

Same. I tried discord but I just couldn’t keep up with it.

For what it’s worth, I’ve liked serializing content on SS. I think you should try it here! It like how the polls here are really reminiscent of Twitter polls too.

I think it'll be more organized here, would be a great way for us all to interact and use this platform more as well!

I'm ready for another round, GM *bows*

What I like about the substack is that we can keep all the discussion here. It's all nicely threaded and relevant to just this excerpt. It lends itself better to longer excerpts, though. I love Discord but it's so chaotic, it would be hard for Sooz to keep a cogent thread. (Twitter did, after it introduced threading, actually do a decent job of it.)

I’m very excited for another Sooz Your Own Adventure! I have discord but no real xp with it. I like this platform as it seems more organised.

would prefer it on here, discord is too overwhelming for me too (it was fun but I can barely keep up with one server)
