Is Everyone Writing A Novel ?


New York City-based artist, writer and composer Cory Arcangel started an innocuous Twitter feed called “Working On My Novel” two years ago. Using only retweets of the phrase, Arcangel has just published a book which pulls together a curated selection of those emotional tweets.



Working On My Novel (Penguin) explores the struggles, frustrations and desperation of would be novelists, along with the elation, excitement and satisfaction in the creative process.


By the way, all of the tweets collected in the book were used with the permission of the original writers.
