You Read Through You read through you t help but look for patterns picture who the authors of the tweets are or attempt to classify the individual tweeting authors these tweets are from people who seem like they ll actually write a book these people are just procrastinating these people are very lonely these people are probably 16 years old In a way it s an artifact of our current age someday people might wonder what this arly age of social media looked like and in a very specific narrow window Matthew tweeting I should be studying for finals but instead I m working on my novel Because yolo does sort of say it ALL DOESN T IT IT S doesn t it It s a bit of fun I won t bother leaving stars because in no way would it be fair to compare this to another book that is 234 starsIt is what it is Get over it no other work of art has Kylmä jälki ever made me uite so disappointed in and contemptuous of so so many different people This is a book of tweets from people who have included the phrase working on my novel in their tweet interspersed with sketches of kettles I m not joking this actually got published by Penguin of all companies The tweets reveal that people prefer to tell you that they re writing their novels rather than actually writing them shock They also inform you of the TV showsmovies they re watching the foodsdrinks they re consuming the other activities they re doing instead of writing and a few say they ve written a bunch of words today and that they re happy It s that mundane In fact reading it makes you feel like you re the butt of a joke And why include bad sketches of kettles to underline how arty this project isAll I can say is that Cory Arcangel must be really well connected to get this rubbish into print by a major publisher If you want to read this book for free go on Twitter at any time check out the hashtag amwriting and have your fill of all the nonsense you can stand that self absorbed dummies spout about their writing Cory Arcangel s Working on My Novel is a novelty publication with nothing to offer but it s own vacuity.

it may arn a place in literary history In all other respects I m afraid itmay The Meaning of Creation earn a place in literary history In all other respects I m afraid it not To sort a compilation of tweets by all sorts of authors published and unpubished ones in such a way that they connect and give some sense of development is notxactly writing And a development from a solid writer s block to whole nights of nthousiast writing as it is given here does not amount to a plot What this book does deliver though What does it feel like to try and create something new How is it possible to find a space for the demands of writing a novel in a world of instant communicatio. ,
S a long list of twitter accounts of lesser known writers and aspiring novelists as a sort of attachement Perhaps a good marketing tool for them I probably sound like a spoil sport so maybe I m just too old for this kind of gimmick I was interested to read this book for two reasons Firstly because I really njoy xperimental and conceptual writing Secondly many of my friends are writers Social media often greets me with a sea of updates
about their progress so the idea of tweetstheir progress so the idea of tweets from people writing their novels really tickled me The tweets are sad funny of hope little hints of a bigger story There are xcuses about why someone isn t writing right now of course none of them are actually writing a novel they are too busy tweeting tiny plot teasers or secrets withheld so that nobody steals the idea and beats the budding author to a publishing deal There is a kind of cummulative optimism with Celebrity Pass everyone believing they are creeping closer to their big break combined with the melancholy of knowing that for most or all of the tweeters their dream of publication is never going to come true It s a really attractive little book and would make a lovely present for a writer Working on my Novel is modern art in book form It s only of those pieces of art that many readers are going to say that they could have done themselves In this case it s very true The book is a collection of tweets that mention working on my novel Taken together they seem to make a comment on the distractions of modern society an There s not a lot to say here that wasn t said better by the reviews that came out a few months ago Working On My Novel is a book compiled from tweets that featured the words working on my novel that were compiled by a twitter account Corey Arcangel created to automatically gather and compile such tweets The book itself is of an art project than a book it s largely negative space with one tweet per page and the occasional line drawing of a tea kettle Arcangel s major artistic contribution As a book there s not a whole lot there but as an art project it s provocative li.
