Blog fiction sees the internet not as a distribution pipeline or as a means of presenting stories, but as a storytelling medium itself. Text, sound, image and movement have all been used to create and embrace fictional characters, events and places in other mediums, and the internet will be no different.
Blog fiction attempts to advance the cause in two ways. First, by being honest, open and upapologetic in this aim. Second, by calling attention to ways in which internet storytelling might move toward mature craft techniques similar to those in print, film, television and theater.
The first step on the journey to realizing the potential of blog fiction is clarifying the medium for the intended audience. Just as a book has its cover, a movie its opening credits, and the stage its rising curtain, blog fiction requires demarcation. Without such a portal the audience may be confused about the intent of the experience, or distracted by authorial intrusions.
