Linkfest: Cellphone Novels

It started oratory, and then went to longhand, then to the typewriter, followed by the computer, and now — well... the cellphone.

When I first heard that some of Japan's best-selling novels were written on cellphones, I wondered that could even be possible. I mean, I've gotten pretty quick on T9, but a novel? A plot with characters and arcs and emotions? Come on...

But hey, as culture progresses and people evolve, why shouldn't storytelling?

It's the BPP's Most.
