I have been wondering.... would anyone be interested in a Anne Frank-esque storybook? It would follow a similar idea of hiding in an annex, and could have various different characters' POVs through diary entries...

I think it could be pretty awesome :smt003 So, would anyone be interested?

Hmmmm depends on exactly how it was run, but it does sound interesting. The only problem is, how much can you talk about hiding? It isn't that interesting.....

If you're talking about Anne Frank from Z for Zachariah then I am totally in! You probably aren't and I must of skipped something important in the first post but still, I'd be up for it. I would have to disagree what Calli said though, I think you could do it. Though, the area would have to be big and their has to be massive plot twists. :D
I spy!

I'm pretty sure she means the holocaust Anne Frank. And annexes were rather small, and cramped.

And honest, I would agree, it would get rather boring. All you do is hide up there, with not much to talk about.

If it was done right it would be kinda cool. I'm not sure about the diary format, and I've never done a storybook before. From what I'm observed I think it could be really deep and interesting with all the characters being forced to interact. Plus, the constant outside threat would have plenty of drama.

It might be interesting...but I wouldn't really do it, just to be safe. It could get offensive once people start being Nazis and killing Jews. Maybe take the Anne Frank idea totally re-create it...
Honey, you should see me in a crown.
  








Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
