"People are seeing Twitter as separate from all of the great literature of the world, and I think that's crazy," said Sanderson.
The writer, a guest blogger at The Huffington Post whose non-fiction book Gorilla Theater was published by Routledge, compares his Twitter novel to starting up a business.
"It's very similar to a startup in that it takes a lot of intense effort and you don't see the monetization right away," he said.
Sanderson also sees Twitter as opening new business opportunities to writers. "It's a way to use a new form to connect to traditional publishing," he told TheStreet. His goal, he adds, is to see 1,000, a Novel in Tweets published as a physical novel and an e-book."As it's tweeting, I'm also courting agents," he said. "It's a whole new way of doing business for literary fiction." -- Written by James Rogers in New York. Follow @jamesjrogers >To submit a news tip, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
