Novels Written on Cellphones Become Hits

Cellphone novels? Some of you will cringe and those of you who slave over syntax of your words via computer are probably about to get mad. In Japan, authors actually create “literature” via text messages. This is an amazing feat and it’s working out. This story tells of a 21 year old, Rin who’s debut novel sold 400,000 copies and became number 5 in 2007. Our world definitely has changed, and how a novel can be written originally from texts is baffling, and they sell too? It continues to grow, even the list from last year, yields 5 of the top 10 best selling books. Imagine, seeing a person texting is no longer just sending a message, but it’s actually creative writing. (NY Times – Cellphone Authors)
