Writing in Interactive Fiction

That’s high praise!

FWIW, this kind of thinking – presenting communication with a structure matching how people process relevant information – is a general approach. It’s useful for all kinds of things besides locale descriptions, and a good thing to keep in mind whenever you’re looking to tackle a communication problem.

To unpack such a structure is the hard part. But such things are taught all the time. Advertisers, for example, spend a great deal of time and effort to learn how people read magazine ads (or ads in whatever medium), and will write books explaining what they’ve learned.

This thread inspired me to rewrite all the room descriptions in my WIP.
