I also spent a lot of last night wrestling with writing a macro for Twine, and I just gave up on getting the behavior I wanted with it when I was up at 1am staring at it until my eyes were swimming. Twine is pretty great over the hood, but under the hood it's a fragile clusterfuck, and that makes it extremely frustrating to use. OH WELL. The macro that I now have mostly does what I want, and at least it's better than the default behavior.
On the other hand, the thrill of experimenting, of playing around with the structures and the flow of text, is really fun. I'm sure it will be a disaster of characterization, worldbuilding and pacing, but too bad! I will rock on!
