In partnership with Wordia, the video dictionary, East of the Web presents Link 7, a series of stories linked by seven words: case, fast, light, note, refuse, row, wound

Link 7 contains stories by Alan Beard, Sophie Cooke, Charles Lambert, James Ross, Sarah Salway and Kay Sexton along with many others.

Flash 8 or higher plug-in recommended.

the use of the varied definitions of the words makes this so fascinating to me. W-O-U-N-D, is it a gash in your leg or the way you rolled up the string?
really enjoying this!

I definitely like the idea of trying new ways of telling stories, and I was quite keen to check out the interactive stories, but I wasn't particularly impressed by the ones I read on link 7 to be honest. I read about 4 or 5 and some were better than others, but as a general rule they didn't seem to be up to the usual high standards of eastoftheweb.

I think there are only eighteen stories right now.

Not bad, just a slight comment for 'wound' - the storyline is good, but the grammar is confusing. It's like I'm flashing back and forth in time, or something.

The stories seem awfully short, and seem to lack any kind of resolution. Is that what "7" is all about?

Particularly like the stories by Sexton & Dutch. Good stuff!!

Very confusing to a foreigner, even with good skills in English. I mean, what's the point of this?

I read this fast, it's writing that grabs you and refuses to let go (I read about ten of the stories in a row). Some of the stories are light reading, though that's not the case with all of them. It's interesting to note how each author wound up using each word.

Interesting idea. I found myself clicking around quite a bit. Fun to see how different stories emerged from the same words.
