NEW STORY AT WEBYARNS.COM


Dates:
Thu Oct 03, 2013 21:05 - Sat Oct 31, 2015

This is the latest in a series of stories written using HTML5 (and viewable on most devices, iPhones and iPads included):

Title of Work: The Seven Wonders
URL of Work: http://webyarns.com/wonders/wonders.html

"The Seven Wonders" looks at the wonders of the western world, and a solitary exploration of a kitchen, as a man deals with his absent girlfriend.
This work reduces a story to its basic narrative form through the use of archetypal images, video, animation, and text. The third in a series. For other new works, visit http://webyarns.com/newest.html

My Life in Three Parts


Dates:
Fri Jul 19, 2013 22:00 - Fri Feb 28, 2014

For the past year or so, I have been using HTML5 instead of Flash to create electronic literature. This has presented challenges, the foremost being that I have had to use new approaches toward story-telling to compensate for the loss of the wonderful interactivity Flash afforded. The result has been a paring down of narrative elements to their basic components using archetypal text, images, and video. This new piece, "My Life in Three Parts," exemplifies that approach. It was interesting and liberating to write this one--at times, I felt like I was discovering a new language.

new digital story at webyarns.com


Dates:
Sun Sep 09, 2012 19:10 - Wed Jan 01, 2014

After a few months of picking my way through the unfamiliar territory of HTML, CSS, and Javascript, I am happy to share a new digital story...

"In A World Without Electricity" is the story of a life in celebration, and a life taken. There are no easy answers in the world of this narrative, and questions still remain....

You can view this new story on any device--iPad, iPhone, or Droid, if you have one--or your laptop or desktop computer. It should be universally accessible.

two new digital stories at webyarns.com


Dates:
Tue Nov 08, 2011 21:15 - Wed Nov 30, 2011

After a long hiatus, here are two new digital stories at webyarns.com...
"Pangram (The Quick Brown Fox)" plays with the concept of a pangram and provides a hypothetical back-story to the most widely-known example of the form.
The second story, the "ABCs of UFOs," is the purported website of a UFO investigation team. I hope (at a time when laughs are sorely needed) that you find it humorous. Explore and enjoy.
You can find both these stories, and others, at http://www.webyarns.com
Many thanks for your interest!
