  • This is awesome! It's crowd sourcing the story writing experience.

    I wonder, is getting so many people involved in writing the story going to increase those contributor's interest in the story, and in turn increase the sales of the book when released?

  • I would definitely think so!

  • I have a lot of reserves about the end product but at least they retained some control over the creative process. Interesting non the less

  • As one of the people who had posts selected, I'd just like to say that Mr. Burton should be commended for this really fun and engaging exercise in creative writing! It got the public thinking and connecting on a thoughtful level.
