$10 is a deal for a Pushcart

Posted in Uncategorized on October 21, 2009 by nikkorpon

So, I was perusing HTMLGIANT a few weeks ago and stumbled across this. I’m down for pretty much anything odd, so I thought I’d give it a shot. Basically, we’ll start at #1, then each person adds 150 words until this Frankenstein behemoth is done. Then Blake nominates it for a Pushcart. Simple, yeah?

Obviously, this says a lot about the state of American fiction–maybe: mainstream American ‘literary’ fiction–that a bunch of other people have said way more eloquently than I can, so I won’t try here. There are a few threads over at HTMLGIANT–and this one via No Colony–you can comment on.

Luckily, I’ll have some friends along for the ride with me: Richard Thomas, Axel Taiari, Caleb J Ross and Christopher Dwyer, along with Shya Scanlon, Ryan Call, Jac Jemc and about 60 others it would take too long to write out. It’ll be interesting, if nothing else.

I’ll keep you posted from this end. I’ve heard it’s beautifully malformed beast.
