thanks for reading!
have you played Knowing You? one of the things I love about that game is the way it gently pushes you to draw from your own history for material without ever telling you exactly where the boundaries between that and the fiction should be. I was trying for something like that ambiguity.
using specific literal prompts for struggles felt very limiting of that to me, which is why I ended up going the more abstract route, but I still tried to use prompts I could think of multiple examples for from my life.
