The Tweet-A-Novel Challenge

This month is NaNoWriMo. That's National Novel Writing Month to you and me. Budding authors all around the world set themselves the challenge of completing a 50,000 word novel during this one month. We all know the motivational power of a deadline, and the theory is that with such a tight timescale writers are forced to get the words out— editing can come later. Several h2g2 Researchers are giving it a go this year. But can you tell a story in only 140 characters? If you have a Twitter ID, why not tweet your story, ending it with #post140. We'll publish the best of them next week. You can use the hash tag function to quickly search for all entrants #post140

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. It has been compiled and recompiled many times and under many different editorships. It contains contributions from countless numbers of travellers and researchers."
