From Fiction to Interactive Fiction (Part 2)
While working through my Interactive Fiction based on my own story I started to think about the flow differences between the two formats.
Normally when you write a story there is a strait line flow from the start to the middle and to the end (with the exception of wondering off to explore other characters stories) however, with Interactive Fiction, there is quite a bit of wondering off the main story allowing readers/players to explore or search for clues before the story can continue. Trying to keep this in mind leaves lots of areas to drop hints and clues for other stories, but can get a bit distracting for someone who prefers the linear writing format normally associated to novel writing.
Opp’s I left this a bit late and my coach is arriving ready for my next outing.
