The Uncertain Future

29 December 2010

Remember how I said I’d use this blog to talk about the upcoming release of 47 Echo? Yeah, I haven’t really done that much yet, and it doesn’t look like I’m going to do it today, either.

Actually, I’m going to talk a little bit about The Twitter Novel Project today. Today will be Day 150 of the current book, 200 Days. One doesn’t have to be a mathematician to figure out how many days I have left to write on that one. 🙂

Thing is, I don’t really know what I’m going to do with The Twitter Novel Project next. I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot with it — at the end of this project, I will have put up five complete books in the space of about two years. Part of me wants to keep going, just kick out number six and on and on. . . but part of me wants to focus on other areas.

Fortunately, no part of me wants to kill it completely. So, any thoughts or ideas for what I should do next?

    Maybe something more like the short story thing?

    You could do a one day per character tweeting Q&A session, say once or twice per week.

    IN CHARACTER. People can send in questions for characters from your novels, or ask them during that day on Twitter, and you can have some fun breaking the fourth wall.

    Just an idea.

    Meh, probably kinda sucky idea. It’s been done before, Jeph Jacques (spelling?) who does the webcomic Questionable Content has all his characters tweeting.

    Maybe you can enhance the tweets, adding short YouTube/TwitVid videos (you’ve done that a little), geotags/Foursquare check-ins, TwitPic photos, sound clips, etc.

    Other idea: If you’ve got a lot of time (and enough dedicated followers in your area), you can run a full-fledged ARG alongside the story. Google “ilovebees.com” and “portal ARG” for good examples.

    Interesting ideas, y’all. Added to the brain-stew.
