On Twitter today, I noticed an awesome contest being put on by the fine people at GalleyCat. They’re taking a Victorian vampire novel and assigning each of the entrants a page to rewrite. When the book is complete, they will be releasing it as a free eBook as well as giving prizes to their favourite entries. I couldn’t resist. I’ve signed up. If it sounds like something you might be interested in, you can follow the link to their Rewrite Victorian Vampires post.
This idea of theirs was born from the fruits of another fan remix project, Star Wars Uncut. For that project, fans were assigned 15 second segments of the original Star Wars – A New Hope and were to refilm their segment in any manner they wished. It’s amazing, entertaining, and a wonder to see the varying levels of creativity. If you have 2 hours to spare, I recommend it!
So, wish me luck with the rewrite contest. And if you join, let me know in the comments and we can post/link to our respective pages.
