The collaborative book is here, referred by the if:book blog. At the site Novel Twists, Phil McArthur is encouraging 249 other authors to each write a page in a novel, after bidding on it on eBay. The 250 pp. will then be published. The eBay proceeds go to MacMillan Cancer Support.
He expects 250–450 words each day from each person, and stipulates that the hero must not be killed off. There are a few more terms and conditions, such as keeping the language clean. Otherwise, you are free to do what you want—though evidently it should be faithful to what has gone before.

Great idea and thanks Jack... I might just try that one... I especially liked the fact that the proceeds would help others.... Thanks for the read.

My pleasure, Ellen—and welcome to my blog! (I’m enjoying yours after my ﬁrst visit today.)
Thanks Jack, love your notions of Harmony.... I see you are in many of the countries I too work and sense that some of our tactics would be amazingly similar. Yet there are differences that intrigue me... I have bookmarked your site because there's lots I can learn here... Facinating perspectives.

I’ve bookmarked your blog, too! I have just found your MITA site and am reading through your approaches.
May I ask if you are on LinkedIn?

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
