Wasn’t aware of this, but when browsing through the Writely blog, I found this snippet of a press release:
Since its beta launch in August 2005, Writely has enjoyed enthusiastic adoption from users all over the world including businesses, bloggers, editors, students, teachers, poets and playwrights.
Case#3: NaNoWriMo Collective Novel Creation
By midnight on November 30th, a group of seven writers are due to finish a 50,000 word novel as part of National Novel Writing Month: “We are using the Web Word Processor Writely which is ideal for a collaborative project like this, where people from both the U.K. and the U.S. are working on the same document.” (You can view the novel in progress at http://www.writely.com/View.aspx?docid=acjp62pqm98b)
Am slightly ashamed that we didn’t get it finished in time. Outside pressures put paid to it. Still, I might knuckle down during the Christmas holidays to get at least my chunk finished. It would be a shame to waste all that effort.
