Story

I've foolishly volunteered to write whatever you want, live, on webcam, with every keystroke seen as it is made, while taking a vow of silence for 100 hours in Ted Hughes' old Yorkshire farmhouse. Every word I write will be released for free under a CC0 licence. It's all to raise money for Arvon's work with children's literacy and writing projects. 

If I get enough work to keep me busy for the whole 100 hours, I probably won't sleep - which should be very entertaining for everyone.

I've made a short video explaining it all here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECgQ7pb-e-k.

The actual 100 hours will start on December 17th and run through to December 22nd. Right now is your chance to register your pre-orders and get me early on when I'm not too sleep-deprived.

So make a donation now and let me know what you'd like me to write. (You can send me a note when you make your donation. No porn, I'm afraid.) The more you give, the more of my time you get. Make me an offer. :)
