Just musing out loud, as I tend to spend the quiet parts of my day thinking on writing and coming up with all manner of rather unusable ideas. But what about this for an experiment. Or a challenge. Take your favorite book, or at least a book that you know particularly well, and rewrite the first chapter in your own style.
I wonder what Dune would be like if I wrote the first chapter of it?
I’m not sure what to make of this idea, obviously it’s just a bit of harmless fluff for writers with too much time on their hands. But it might be a bit of fun.
Semi related, as I was thinking this at the same time as thinking about SOCNOC too, I wonder what all those people who have only managed an abortive 1000 words or so have come up with. It would be rather interesting to read these little gemlets. Scraps of novel startings that might have had so much promise.
