- Take a book, and edit it down to just the choices the hero has to make
- Convert these choices into game pages, so I know what pictures to draw
- After drawing the pictures, produce the finished web pages.
Today I try a new, faster method:
1. Read the book and produce the finished web pages as I go (with gaps for pictures)
My goal is to convert a book in the same time it takes to read the book! Which might seem impossible, but remember that I'm only looking for choices, so I can skim read large sections before slowing down for the decisions.
Let's see if it works. Today I read H. G. Wells' The Time Machine. Can I have a finished story by tonight? And then draw all the pictures over the next two days? Probably not, but the previous method took six days to write a story, and I hope I can get it down to two. We shall see!
