Nice rundown on the base of interactive children’s books by if.books complete with pictures to call up memories to help us understand direction of the written word.
I’d never had the opportunity between generations to come across the My Adventure stories, but had heard the reference made many times.
Even with the thought of taking new directions, there are many ways to map these out as well. Another post at if.books leads us to an online novel writing interactive piece that reminds me of something that I recall from the past about a novel where each chapter was written by a different author–this was back in the seventies, I believe. Story can change via paths, or story can be enhanced in backstory and perception by allowing readers to travel from without set structure. Linear, yet forking.
Read the posts and do your own interactive thing: Follow the links to see where they take you. In just this post alone I’ve given you three options. You need go no further, you can choose to click the first if.book link or the next.
