Tell a story using the free Inklewriter program found here:http://www.inklestudios.com/inklewriter/

Inklewriter is perfectly designed for choose your own adventure-type stories. It offers numerous tools to create detailed interactive fiction narratives. It is similar in concept to the popular tool twine. Twine, however, is more focused on choice complexity and gaminess, whereas Inklewriter is more focused on storytelling. Look at the examples on the webpage and start writing a story!

I'm putting this as three stars because the difficulty really depends on the scope of the project. Very complex stories with numerous choices and plotholes can quickly spiral out of managable workload here. Don't overstretch your ambitions in terms of choice complexity unless you want to be writing for a good long while. My example piece is a perfect example of this issue.
