What are interactive/branching stories?

Interactive Sana Stories are just like regular short stories or novelettes, except that instead of having one linear narrative, they branch off into multiple storylines or different endings. In Sana Stories this interactivity is easy to create—pick a turning point in your story, think of two different ways the story could continue, write them both, and let the reader choose!
