Welcome to WRITER’S QUEST!
You are in a writer’s room. Exits are north and east. The door leading north has “This Way to Fame, Fortune, and Free Beer!” painted over it.
There is a chair here.
You have a Hazy Idea for a story.
You have a Muse.
You have an Inner Editor.
You can’t go that way.
I don’t know how to what.
It’s just a chair. It doesn’t look very comfy.
Your Muse waves at you.
The Inner Editor glares at you and mutters.
Your Muse is trying to say something.
You can’t hear over the Inner Editor talking. (It has some things to say about the implausibility of your Hazy Idea.)
> gag inner editor
You gag the little anthropomorphic personification. It glares at you and sulks.
Read the whole thing. Those of us who have played a lot of Zork will find it especially amusing.
