As we near the end of the semester, I am faced with the challenge of beginning to actually create a website for my capstone project. I have been putting off this aspect of the project up until now because I feel that the core of my project is going to be the writing – the script – rather than the website itself. However, after talking with Shelley and some of my group members I am getting some ideas for how to add my script onto a site in an interactive fashion.
However it is still definitely a challenge. The last time I had this problem was the gateway class where we also created websites. I remember being stuck for a while in that class, not knowing how to present my writing, or where to put each piece. I put a lot of pressure on myself to make it something meaningful. Ultimately, I was able to take ideas from my teacher at the time, Ray, my classmates, and outside sources of inspiration to make a creative site that worked. One idea for instance that I was able to apply was playing the song I was writing about, A Day In The Life, as you opened the site and read the intro on the Beatles, myself, and my project.
Some ideas that I have gotten / come up with myself thus far for this project consists of creating a “kindle type” format for my script where the reader can click onto the next page as opposed to continuously scrolling down. Also, coming up with my “dream cast” for the script. As well as having an introduction page that speaks to my process as a whole.
If anyone has ideas, or ways to utilize Wix that might be helpful for this type of project, let me know!
