In writing the Interactive novel I need a few guidelines or rules on how to make it work. to find out what they are look below.
The Interactive Novel is a novel with a difference. Written and published in instalments the interactive novel allows you the reader the chance to influence a novel like never before. Each instalment of the novel will be published as a downloadable pdf found at http://www.theinteractivenovel.com or readable as a blog found on the website.
With each publication the reader will be asked at least one multiple choice question on what happens next or during the novel. The answers to these questions will form a vote for what happens next or during the interactive novel.
The options that receives the most votes will be the winner and will alter what happens during the novel.
The Interactive Novel works on a weekly cycle. Each instalment will be published 9 PM GMT on a Friday. The choices to vote on with also be published at this time.
All votes close on the Sunday following the publication of that instalment at 8 PM GMT
The option that receives the most votes will be the winner and will influence the story
The results of the vote will be published as a percentage on the Nigel Briggs website on the day following the release of the instalment that it affects
Once the novel is complete it will be edited to take out any mistakes or small inconstancies in the plot. On no account will any of the choices made by the readers be altered at this stage.
