Thumb novels

A novel by text - it had to happen. I found this article online just now.

Gawd, I'm slow enough sending a message by text, a thumb novel would take me longer to write than a real one!

Absolutely terrifying. Interesting, but terrifying!

Just wanted to share the news, as well - I've accepted an offer from Random House UK. Yay! :)

Hi Vanda - i don't think as the 'text novelist' you have to tap the jolly thing into the cellphone... but the thought that you could has all sorts of implications ... it would be the most direct novel ever...from mind to thumb to mind...

Andrea - WELL DONE YOU!!! CONGRATULATIONS AND JUBILATIONS. My hat is off to you for your hard work in making this happen. You are an inspiration.

I LOVE YOUR PICTURE OF WORDS- this describes what my website shows about the effect of words in our memory- and how our mind and body are totally absorbed in the feelings, and emotions of the memory of words. We live by words we hear and we function by the memory of those words. Sometimes the words do not match our desires and that is where the words affect us most. Thank you for your brilliant way of expressing words on a picture of life.
