This work of hypertext
fiction was created for EL 230, Writing for the
Internet. This is my first venture into hypertext
writing; I am new to this whole
"non-linear" thing. I modeled my piece
after an ordinary travelogue -- a travelogue that
becomes not so ordinary after I made it more
interactive by adding hyperlinks to the story. I
link within my site and outside of my site.
Off-site links will open in a new window for your
reading ease. Clearly, as a youth, Choose
Your Own Adventure books influenced me.
The "story" is
best described as a fictional memoir based on
actual events. The names have not changed to
protect the innocent, and no one was harmed in
the making of our journey. Not even the kind
ticket agents at American Airlines.
