Tuesday Hangovers

  1. I hadn’t read about Susan Orlean writing a novel using Google Docs, but I just (last night) set up a personal wiki on my web server for the express purpose of hyperlinked world-building for a fantasy novel I have in the works. I wanted to create a wiki so I could take a few minutes every night and add a new character or place or elder god or somesuch, and build an ever-growing mythos for my world, but so far it’s been so addictive I can’t stop posting to it. Must. Close. Browser. I’m sure the novelty will wear off soon, but right now I like playing with my shiny new writer’s toy.

  2. I love this idea — and also bet that Christopher will see this and start doing the same thing. There are maps and notes and etc. tucked away everywhere for his new project.
    Plus, you could always plant clues somewhere as to the location of the Wiki, when the book is becomes a phenom. Instant Alternate Reality Game.
