Vote for Novel Nugget

Posted February 13, 2008

The plots have been hatched. The settings are settled. Now it is time for the literary team to convene.

Please peruse Tuesday’s entries in our NC Novel game. Vote for one story starter. Tomorrow we will write a chapter in our book using the wide range of our creative talents.

You have some interesting elements to consider from a body in a bathtub to preaching and eating on the church grounds to sailboats at sunset to wild Wilmington to Blowing Rock in the dead of winter.

Which novel nugget would you like to use? Feel free to get your friends to vote as well.
