Now Tim Hallinan writes to me with an interesting proposal for courageous pantsers:
Hi, Sphinx Ink --
If you get a chance, look at my latest blog at http://www.timothyhallinan.com/blog/?p=64.
It issues a challenge to writers to do what Dickens did, and post a chapter at a time AS THEY WRITE THE NOVEL, meaning it's pantsing to the max.
I've said I'll attempt it if two other people are crazy enough to join me.
Is this something you'd like either to attempt or to share with your blog community? I'm sending it to half a dozen writers with sites and also posting it on Crimespace.
Let me know.
What say ye, O bold and faithful pantsers? Shall ye try your hands at this experiment? Can you emulate Charles Dickens, whose chapters were printed week-by-week in the newspaper as he wrote them?
Visit Tim's blog and let him know.
(I am thinking about it...thinking....thinking....)
