Once Upon a Time

Novel Matters has always been a collaboration. Six writers setting out to set the blogsphere on its ear, right?

It started out with six writers, but, from the very beginning, Novel Matters has been a meeting place, a community of like-minded book people. Readers and writers alike. Three times a week, we put out there some ideas, hopes, dreams (sometimes crushed dreams), and then the collaboration begins. Over the years, each one of you (even you lurkers!) have contributed to the life, verve, and joy of this blog by commenting, sharing your thoughts, and often, sharing part of your life with us.

Now, we invite you to share in a story. To be a co-writer with the six of us--starting Friday, January 31.

Patti Hill will post the opening of a story--150 words--for you to read. The next step is to email us ( and tell us you are willing to write a section of the ongoing story.

You'll have time to think, write, edit, rewrite, etc. Then, you will send your nicely polished words to us and we will post them. You can read the continuing story each Friday on Novel Matters.

Ready for a fun writing challenge with no down side? Don't hesitate. If you love story, you are welcome to sign up. Don't wait!

Email us at and join in the fun!
