Random Thought

I follow a lot of bookish people on Twitter, as well as their blogs (many of which can be found down, and to the right).

I feel a collaboration might be fun, so all your readers, let me know if you have an idea...

...the first one that popped into my head? I post a typical forgotten bookmark, and a few writer-types come up with a few paragraphs that might explain why that item ended up in that book. For example:

Postcard: Milan, 1961. 
Dear Lover,
It's over.
-you know who
Found in "Catch 22."


"It was a dark and stormy night in Milan when I decided to dash off a final goodbye to that idiot lover of mine..."

You get the idea.

Let me know if you have any ideas, it could be fun.


  1. I love this idea! :) We could even expand upon it - as in, Person 1 writes the first sentence, Person 2 writes the second, Person 3 writes the third, until we end up with a whole story!


  2. I'm typically no good at organizing this kind of thing - but I will do my best if there's interest. Let me know if you want in.
