3 Day Novel Project Gears up Again! Rousing Writers since 1977

Amazing things (and also crappy things) can get done in very small amounts of time – the good news with an art project like the 3 Day Novel, even if the end result is non-masterpiecey, is that you get to squeeze that set of ideas out of your system and into the world and waste [...]

My post ran away with me and turned into a relatively nerdy diatribe on the subject of open source licenses applied to storytelling, and a critique of the Million Penguins project.
