    Bewildering, bi-lined, black-boxed brilliance!
    Bully for you, Miss Lola

  2. I love it–I love the dip into new ways of storytelling. You’d probably love writing hypertext as well! Neat.

  3. This is fantastic! What fun.

    Hate to use the word ‘clever’ because it seems of late to have taken on a negative connotation, but . . . I had to smile.

  6. so good and playful, diving into the medium. yes, how did you do it?

  7. I don’t mind saying it was clever. It reminds me of a monochrome painting where you have to pay attention to how the light hits the canvas in order to see the picture. Well done!

    Thanks for the comments! I had the idea to make the words hide — black words lurking in black background. I got a little bit of help from Walter.

    Thank you all again. I loved writing this piece.

  10. Brilliant, Lola, Very clever.

  11. Very cute – so impressed. Fantastic use of the medium.
