HyperText Report.

http://www.hypertextopia.com/library/read/194

In the beginning I was questioning how orignal I could be when everyone in our class had to do the same concept. I’ve avoided that aspect now and stuck to adding complexities to my story.  As you can see the main aspect I’m functioning around is the stories of the people in the store, and how they connect.   I converted all my pages to HyperTexTopia.  I even added quite a bit more to the story, so that it is much more visible how all the characters interlock.  With my link names, I always try to anticipate/ describe future events. I normally do this with “The (verb/noun)” to be as simple as possible with still foreshadowing future events.  I still plan to add a lot more stories and have them all interconnect.  So far, I have the security chief who discovers the punks stealing milk for kittens dumped by the Wife and husband who wrote a book slandering a former founder of a company but now works in the store due to the book. It’s complicated, yet simple how they all connect. Right now I only have three stories in the store.  I plan to do eight.  and I might move my current three to the end so that they would be the last three.  HyperTexTopia is not the best thing for hypertext.  If you want to link from a word in the text, you can’t do it again from that link. it’s called a shard and it doesn’t even show up as it’s own page.  It justs pops up when you hover over that word. I decided not to use shards and just use the basic navigation system to avoid these problems.  I think I’m an intuitive thinker, as I just write whatever pops into my head. then I refine it until I actually like it.  I have had many successes so far, But when faced with a problem, I tend to search for a solution, or another solution if the solution is the problem.
