Create an Electronic Literature Project. Plan on paper – think about the story as a diagram of nodes and links rather than a straight line. The image below is an example of this process.
Following these rules/constraints, plan on paper FIRST, then create the story using twine:
A trauma (emotional, physical, psychological) has taken place at Location Choice (choose only 1, action stays in location)
- city street
- suburban home
It involves three characters, one of whom is the participant
- create a clear role for participant – are they the protagonist, an observer?
- create at least 3 situations which require a choice or action by the participant which reveals something about them.
- create at least 3 situations for the participant that will evoke an emotional response.
Include at least two of these
- a surprise entrance
- a broken expectation
- a betrayal
- a secret
- a mixed motive
Include a desired object, it can be
- a piece of rope
- a person
- an art object
- 2-5 minutes of reading time
- twine nodes/pages 25-50
