The Endless Dance: A Hyper(non)fiction
I started out wanting to create a hyperfiction for this project. You can either ask Wikipedia or go to this lovely source to find out what a hyperfiction is, but essentially it’s a choose-your-own adventure story on the internet. Hyperlinks move the story forward, and the read is able to choose multiple paths through which to experience the story, thus ensuring different impressions for different readers.
The biggest obstacle to my project was that I honestly couldn’t think of a story to tell. I’ve had a few floating around in my head, but they’re all huge, labor-intensive projects that could easily take all summer to complete (if I weren’t easily distracted, which I am). So I decided to drop the story aspect and go with something nonfiction, if you will. The Endless Dance is the result of this experimentation, written in (extremely) basic HTML and hosted on Webs.com.
To further bribe people to take a look, there is a Barenaked Ladies music video embedded in the site. That should make the geek among us happy.
