From GalleyCat:

Chicago-based storyteller Willy Chyr is hosting an experiment he calls The Collabowriters, a “novel by the internet.”

The novel is written one sentence at a time. For each sentence, anyone can enter a submission (up to 140 characters). Users, such as yourself, then vote on each submission, giving it a score of either +1 or -1. The submission with the highest score becomes the sentence in the novel, or at least until another submission surpasses its score.”

Once a submission receives a score of five, Chyr (pictured, via) will add it to the novel. As of this writing, four paragraphs (333 words) have been written. This crowdsourced novel stars a widower named Zachary.

The median length of a novel is about 64,000 words. Without a page or time limit, the novel could take years to finish. Will you be submit a sentence?
