Rantglass - because that's how things are.
  1. Go for it! Even the FAQ notes that a set of connected short stories could be considered a novel.

    This gives me the opportunity to recommend one of my favorite books, which fits into that category:
    If On A Winter’s Night A Traveller by Italo Calvino.

  2. Tim – Ah, but I’m not ready for the disappointment and embarassment that will follow, should I really get a move on joining Nanowrimo.

    Thanks, I shall also keep an eye on Calvino’s book. :) I have too many books still unread… next up will be Da Vinci Code (slow, yes, I know).

  4. If, you can actually stop reading Da Vinci Code once you have started, I’d be amazed. That is one page turner.

  5. Soporific – Tim can’t get StarTwo in England. :P In any case… yes, 50,000 words will be quite taxing, given my current schedule.

    Ali – I did stop after Chapter 1. :D It was too late; I had to go to bed then…

  6. hm an open story-writing event? sounds cool! 50,000 words seems like an awful lot to write though… :P
