Strap on chat bot

Constance creates a column for every possible word or phrase that the reader/user might input and this creates a good structure for me to create as many outputs from Romy as possible.

It’s very helpful that Constance adds her own inputs as the reader/user.

This project began with an 1100-word short story I wrote a couple of years ago.

I wanted to find out how much more of an intensely intimate reading experience I could create by using one-to-one digital interactivity.

I want the project to feel like a book as much as possible.

I will likely use this method again on other projects even if the story isn’t interactive, it’s a really good way of fleshing things out and filling in loop holes: TEST CHATBOT Tom explained to me “You’re not one of us. You grew up as a human girl but you don’t have that memory any more.” TEST USER Why don’t you have that memory anymore? Often I choose film soundtracks and this time I've chosen soundtracks from Blade Runner and Aliens.

Although they’re pretty humourless and I'm not sure how humourless my writing will be (it turns out there’s not many laughs in this story.) I want it to look and feel like a book.

This is because there are several considerations going on simultaneously, one of which being what the audience/user is doing at any one time.

So much of these scripts are based on ‘if this then that’ and spreadsheets are the most useful format. After the writing I’ve done in film-script format (transcribing the third person short story into first person dialogue) I transcribe it to the spreadsheet and eventually I write directly using the spreadsheet itself.
