TechBlog | A technology blog with Dwight Silverman: "Like a lot of us writers, Houstonian Mark Putnam thinks he's got a novel in him. The problem is, he isn't quite sure what that novel's about. He has a few things left to work out.
You know, important things. Like the protagonist's profession, strengths/weaknesses, childhood experiences, etc.
So rather than decisively building a character, he's turning to the wisdom of the crowd. At his blog, Plotastic!, future readers get to vote on key elements of his first novel."
The ballot is here.
