You are here. What do you want to do?
[[Make something new|New]]
[[Convert an old story into a digital project|Old]]Let's make something new!
You decide you're going to write a new story, and after taking a recent workshop on Twine, you decide to use it as your prototyping tool, writing directly in the program and building story forks as you go along.
You spend the month of April 2021 writing, and you have a few different "endings" for your project. You're ready to decide which in which format you want to present your final project.
[[Choose Paper & Pen|P&P]]Let's work on an old project and make it into something new!
You pull out an old project.
You spend the month of April 2021 polishing it and cutting it into forked decision paths. You're ready to decide which in which format you want to present your final project.
[[Choose Paper & Pen|P&P]]You decide to present your final project using twine.
You run it a few times in test mode, and you try out the different a/b (or a/b/c+) choice paths you have created, and they all get to an ending.
You're ready to share it.
You output the file (under the home icon), and send the link to The Papercut Arcade at email@example.com.
[[Cross your fingers...|Response]]You decide to present your final project using pen and paper.
You write out your story (and/or print it), and assemble your booket. You're ready to share it, but you're not sure how.
You send an email to The Papercut Arcade at firstname.lastname@example.org asking what the next steps are...
[[Wait for a response...|"Response2"]]A few days later, you receive an email saying your project has been approved. You get an invitation to a workshop at the end of the month to help you write your artist statement, and get all the pieces in place so that The Papercut Arcade can show your work.
You receive a note that the collective will work with you on content warnings. You decide to re-read your work before the event to check for any content that you want to discuss with them in the days ahead so you can show your work to an all-ages internet audience.
You mark the date in your calendar, and start working on a bio and a few sentences that describes how you think the project is related to the theme "Blackout".
You're excited to be part of this event, and proud to show your work (even if it's isn't fancy, completely finished, or if it's your first work). You email your friends to invite them to the event and get ready to join the presentation on May 22nd with your fellow creators.
(click:"Restart")[(restart:)]A few days later, you receive an email from The Papercut Arcade. They offer you a few different ways that you can share your project. Because you have an old camera, you decide to take pictures of your project. You now can decide if you want to simply share the pictures (with the file names including the "page numbers"), or if you want to put these pictures into twine. You were surprized to here you could add images to twine!
[[Photograph your Pen & Paper project|Photos]]
[[Try putting your images into Twine|Twine]]You decide to photograph your project. When you have all the images finished, you name each image file with the page number it shows. You zip the images, along with a text file that explains your project to The Papercut Arcade collective so they can help you get the project up online. You send it in an email and cross your fingers that your project will be included in the final presentation!
