You can join a dozen or so people writing a short story collaboratively. The story is meant to be crime fiction, has opening lines written by last year's Ned Kelly Award winner, Michael Robotham, but various authors have contributed some really quirky bits. However there is nothing to stop you from introducing romance, a vampire or two, a car chase, a bit of history etc. You get my drift?

This week's poll: When do you abandon reading a book that you don't like?
Some people have rules: they give the book 10 pages, 20 pages, 50 pages, etc. while others find it difficult to abandon reading a book once they've started. They sort of feel committed.
Pop in and vote (the poll is in the right margin) and leave a comment on this post if you want to explain why you voted the way you did.
