View Full Version : I'm thinking of writing a novel told entirely through a series of forum posts

Kinda like the play "three sisters" except with a forum being the focal point rather than a house.

Or maybe not. I can't write worth a damn.

That's because he likes to see them fail horribly, and then laugh at them.

I've seen a similar thing done in a novel called ".e" which is all told by e-mails. To tell the truth, it looked limiting and gimmicky.

Still, best of luck.

In FASA's ShadowRun, their Decker (Computer Hacker) expansion has lots of short stories embedded in it, told through the posts of forum of "hackers" and some savvy cyber-net users. Some were interesting, AIR.

Write a few books, instead. You've got the titles of a best selling triology done already; _You r all gay_, _twats, I am_ and _The HARDMAN_.

Find out how who published Chandler and peddle it to them.
