Thanks, JH. I hope that you and all the other authors are well.

I am healthy so far. There are not many COVID-19 cases in the Charleston SC area yet, although I know more than the usual number of friends and acquaintances were down with normal colds in February than in past years. I am likely to go on furlough at work for the month of April, but I am still much better off than many.

I'm fine ATM, thanks. It's good to know that you are too.

I'm hoping that, with people likely to have more time on their hands, it might lead to some new addventure episodes appearing.

I am fine as well, although getting a little stir crazy here in Oregon. I'm glad to hear that everyone is doing well.

It's bad here in Australia and getting worse. I am in an ultra high risk category too which is unhelpful. However for the moment I am safe and well. And I agree, this forced confinement will hopefully recruit and encourage some more writers!

Is there a facebook group for Extend-a-Story?

There's no Facebook page. Given that we have this forum, I'm not sure that it would really add anything, though Sir Toby might feel differently. Horsehockey, which uses the EAS software, has a Discord, which you can find the link to on their homepage at http://www.horsehockey.org/ It's not very active, though.

Facebook is way more popular than Discord servers, and there are already interactive fiction groups. A Facebook group would undoubtedly attract new contributors as long as it was active and it would show up in searches too.

I'm fine with people setting up a Facebook group if they want. However, I don't actively use Facebook and I don't have plans to be active on such a Facebook group.

No problem, the facebook group is just another way to try and get new writers. :)
