There Goes Your Last Excuse
Of course you have that brilliant novel in you, and of course you're dying to write it, but...the pressures of work, long commuting hours, the absence of space, yada yada yada. Well, Robert Bernocco, an Italian IT professional, put the time he spent traveling each day to good use: in 17 weeks, he composed a 384-page science fiction novel entirely on his mobile phone. He then downloaded the manuscript and split it into smaller paragraphs on his computer. The book was published through Lulu.com, though it is not yet known what salve Mr Bernocco applied to his sore thumbs.
