DAY 8: DFWRIMO ONE WEEK RECAP
Today it's time to recap what we've done so far.
First we learned all about interactive fiction and how Decision Fiction tackles interactive fiction.
We started by asking ourselves what we should write. We looked at various genres and an ideal story for the upcoming holiday is D.J. Santa. We brainstormed possible ways to exploit the Decision Fiction platform and then began working on a loose plot.
Our plot centers around Santa failing at his only job, dropping off presents to the world's children. He now has to go through a perilous journey to regain the trust of the world and turn back time to complete his task. There are supporting characters including Mrs. Claus
To get a complete view of our story, we dug into some possible story-lines and endings. Then we looked at the nodes, central points of the story-line, and plotted exactly how the final ending takes place.
Now that we have a complete outline we are going to work on characters, gather our writing tools and start writing next week. If you have time, jot down some cool things you'd like to see in your upcoming interactive fiction work.
It's almost time writer. Get those pens ready.
