Tweet? Help write a novel

Neil Gaiman seeks help

Famed graphic novelist Neil Gaiman started a novel Tuesday on Twitter and is enlisting others to finish writing it one tweet at a time.

At noon EDT, Gaiman wrote, "Sam was brushing her hair when the girl in the mirror put down the hairbrush, smiled & said, 'We don't love you anymore.'"

Anyone else who wants to add to it can do so by tweeting their contribution and tagging it with #bbcawdio.

Gaiman, the author of the book that sparked the animated movie "Coraline," is carrying out the project in cooperation with the BBC, with the plan to take the first 1,000 tweets and fashion them into a novel.

The novel will be made into an audio book that will be available on iTunes.

Gaiman is the author of the Sandman series of graphic novels and wrote The Graveyard Book, which won the Newbery Medal for children’s fiction.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
