I had my first class for Writing for the Web II yesterday. I am thrilled that this class is going be different from Writing from the Web I. I foresee a lot more creativity and flexibility with the assignments, and I hope to gain a greater sense of ownership and accomplishment with the deliverable for this class over those from the last class.
Hank and I have been teamed up to create a website for a magazine. We’ve decided on Beautiful Decay. At first glance, it appears to be an edgy, visual arts mag. The images are stunning and I think we can do a lot with it for the assignment. The trick for me will be to nail down the voice and tone of the writing and duplicate it in my own creative pieces.
