Chapter Sixteen's now up. One more update, and I'm off to bed, I think.

I hope you get a contract with one of the BIG publishers.

No one else has thought of this.

No.
One.

I was thinking that! I was thinking no one else has thought of this, and that I hope tweet gets a big book deal. Funny that I might think of that, but not of writing a novel 140 characters at a time.

I know!  Imagine! A novel written 140 characters at a time.
It's like reading a novel through fortune cookies!

You know, I've had the fortune cookie thought, too.

Thanks for the kind words, gents!

New post up on the blog. . . finally, a non-story-related post where I gush some love at some people. Including y'all.

Note: I know "y'all" is a terrible thing to say, but I grew up (partially) in Texas.

Also, new chapter:

I just keep rolling. Though not forever, looks like -- I'm scratching 40,000 words on the novel, so it's about 4/5ths done, I think.

Is this book ever going to end?

Not yet, anyway. :)

I've seen several articles of the type, actually. I think where I'm different than some of the rest is I update every day, not just a few lines when the mood strikes -- and I have a whole lot more story than a lot of the others who attempt it.

A lot of them get 50 or 60 posts in and give up, which makes me sad -- or do it on such a long timeline that it's no fun to wait. I wish more people would do it, and do it regularly -- I'd love to see something like this become a valid way of reaching readers.

Another chapter:

I really liked writing this one, which probably doesn't say much for my own state of mental health at this point.

If you get crazy enough writing you either end up Zen or moving to Cuba and shooting yourself in the head! Say it with me, OM.

Yeah, but if I moved to Cuba, I'd have to try to drink myself to death first. And, y'know, I don't drink, so looks like Buddhism for me.  :)
