DJ Britt (pictured) will embark on a literary quest to write 24 three-day novels in the next year. Britt hopes to write 24,000 pages by the end of the year–what he calls “the ultimate act of literary insanity.”
According to his rules, each novel must be started and completed within a 72-hour period. If he hasn’t completed a novel by the end of 72 hours, the manuscript is disqualified from being included in the final 24 novels.
Literary marathons are popular this year. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) began yesterday–challenging participants to finish a 50,000 word novel in a month. In October, 36 novelists wrote a live novel together as a charity event.
