Holly Lisle is writing a door-stopper of a novel. Not only that, she's doing it at, for her, a snail's pace. She has invited us to write small chunks with her, and in this way, finish a normal length novel (100k) at about the time she finishes hers.
I'm going to try this. What can I lose? Even if the novel sucks, at least I'll have one under my belt.
I've had a story circulating in my mind for several years now. I keep trying to write the story several different ways, and keep dropping it as unwritable. But it won't let me go. So I'm going to try, once again!, to write the thing.
I'll try to keep some kind of word count progress here. Working title is "Soul Survivor."
