Basically, OpenLit is a simple catalytic cycle: Write - Share - Read - Respond
First, writers write.
Second, writers share with others what they have written.
Third, readers read what is available.
Fourth, readers respond to what they have read.
In this way, writers become better writers by virtue of having a distribution outlet that embeds constant feedback, and readers have access to better and better stories, where “better” actually means better for them based on their interaction with the writers.I love this! This is so cool! I want it for more than science fiction! I want it for non-fiction! I want it for everything! I have been using Google docs to work with Steven and other folks willing to contribute sidebars to our project. It has been great having collaborative workspace for this, but now I see the real possibilities. Anyone want to build this for LIS publishing? Put something like this together with a self-publishing site like Lulu.com and I'll be the first to sign up.
