Jerz: Writing for the Internet (EL236)


10 November 2004

Informal Progress Reports

Due: Ex 2-3: Interactive Fiction Sampler

I have already sent out instructions regarding this exercise... the first part asks you to find four interactive fiction games that interest you. You can use Baf's Guide to the Interactive Fiction Archive, where you can choose games by genre or awards (such as "best writing" or "best puzzles").

1) Play each of your four games for 15 minutes, and write a one-paragraph response. (I'm hoping you won't count your writing time as part of the 15 minutes... spend another 10 minutes writing, please.)

2) Then, choose one of your four games and play it for at least an hour. Write a two-page response.

3) Using what you have learned so far about writing for the web, put everything into a well-organized website, written according to the principles you have learned from the assigned readings.

Post your information on http://yourname.setonhill.info/if/index.html". You can try posting it all in one long page, or you can split it up into several shorter pages -- whatever you think works best.

Post links to where you found the games, and just enough explanation (incuding links) so that your page(s) would make sense to a stranger.

Your page(s) should point to the external stylesheet posted at "http://blogs.setonhill.edu/DennisJerz/EL236/if.css".

Update: The stylesheet is up.
