Extraordinary Discourse 232

Pieces Of Saying, Playing

Certainly playing creatively with hypertexts - changing old stories and helping create new ones - can be an enthralling activity, a fine exercise to be practiced at school, a new form of writing, very much akin to the jam session. I believe it can be good and even educational to try to modify stories that already exist… This is essentially what great artists have always done.
