Weird writing/book news

Didja hear the one about the teenager who wrote a three volume novel on a cellphone? It's true!

Or how about Derek Sivers post telling Kurt Vonnegut's explanation about why we are trying to turn our lives into a fairytale?

There you have it, ladies and gents. There is a lot of weird writing/book news for you today. And I will end with a quote, very timely, if I do say so.

Terry Pratchett

Oh, wow, I think Kurt Vonnegut and Derek Sivers might be onto something there! That was great.

And I love the Terry Pratchett quote. Heck, I love Terry Pratchett. That's why everything is so sad. :-(
