The realm of online storytelling has grown steadily over the past decade, drawing attention from thousands of
new audience members, participants and creators who recognize unique opportunities to bring stories to life.
These storytellers often use bold and unconventional approaches for their work, role-playing "real" characters and conducting "true" situations in order to deliver an immersive narrative experience.
But generating access points for discovery without breaking immersion or seeking promotion directly from
content broadcasters can range from being difficult at best to impossible at worst.
Audience members are also likely to miss access points for stories--or "trailheads"--due to the format choice
or execution method used by creators.
Unknowing onlookers can also mistake a story in progress for something far too real, making narrative
execution (and life) for a creator very difficult.
(TL;DR - it's time to break the total immersion rule and keep a place to identify, discover, and introduce all these projects)
The Night Mind Index is built to meet these needs:
Find new and exciting projects to explore in the realm of online storytelling
Identify a discovery as unfiction or confirm suspicions about projects in-progress
Present your project without breaking immersion or directly seeking exposure
