Is It Possible to Blog a Serialised Novel?

Image result for creative writing
Venturing forth without a map, can I blog a novel?

The answer is: probably not. Still, I’m going to give it a try, and here’s why:

  1. It’ll be fun.
  2. I can’t go back and edit things forever. What’s done is done.
  3. I might get a draft of something out of it, if not the finest piece of literary fiction known to man.
  4. Dickens did it. Conan Doyle did it. OK, not on a blog, but they wrote serialised stories, and they were pretty good.

So I’m going to give it a try. You don’t even have to pay for it. You’re free to read the trials and tribulations of this experiment, and since it might turn out terribly, I’m certainly not going to charge you any cash. I have no idea where this story will go. I want to be free of a master plan and just see what happens. I’m hoping that my intuition will give it some structure… but it might end up one big old mess. I’m OK with that.

The parts will be short. Super short, sometimes. I think that’s best for reading on a screen. Think of it as something you can dip into on your phone.

Also, I might learn something here. Leave me a comment if you’d like to help. Make suggestions for plot points or improving the prose – that’s fine with me.

    1. I thought it would be fun. I’m using unfinished bits and pieces of things I’ve already done to get it going. We’ll see how it goes.
