Tweet? Help write a novel

Neil Gaiman seeks help

Famed graphic novelist Neil Gaiman started a novel Tuesday on Twitter and is enlisting others to finish writing it one tweet at a time.

At noon EDT, Gaiman wrote, "Sam was brushing her hair when the girl in the mirror put down the hairbrush, smiled & said, 'We don't love you anymore.'"

Anyone else who wants to add to it can do so by tweeting their contribution and tagging it with #bbcawdio.

Gaiman, the author of the book that sparked the animated movie "Coraline," is carrying out the project in cooperation with the BBC, with the plan to take the first 1,000 tweets and fashion them into a novel.

The novel will be made into an audio book that will be available on iTunes.

Gaiman is the author of the Sandman series of graphic novels and wrote The Graveyard Book, which won the Newbery Medal for children’s fiction.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
