My honors thesis project involved turning one of my short stories, "Unfair," into an interactive multimedia CD-ROM. In adapting the story to this new medium, I struggled with what could be included in the project (both original text and new, multimedia elements); what had to omitted; how the story was to be organized and other implications resulting from the shift in medium. My original goal for this project was to modify a traditional text story, creating a version that was enhanced; that is, better than the original. After dealing with the technical and conceptual issues inherent with a project like this, I don't think I've succeeded in my original goal. Rather, I think the CD-ROM version of "Unfair" is weaker in emotional impact than its prototype.
