Choosing Sides

92choosingsidesI’m not sure any more where I tied this in with Steve’s story of a metaphorical government (or society itself for that matter) but what developed was not so much story as an interesting experiment for me in hypertext structure.

From the map you can see that it is a block style grid pattern with each lexia taking a right turn or down turn only. What this does is eliminate any loops or going around while offering many different paths between the first and last writing spaces. What this meant to me as a writer was that I could come up with many different middles, or I could find different ways of saying the same thing with this particular pattern.

The story is of a man unused to social intercourse going out on his first date with a beautiful woman with a single quirk in her appearance. Not earth shattering, but a nice simple story for this hypertext exercise.

    Nice…I really like the awkward simplicity, especially with his name.
