This man is insane.

Offering up a contest to blog readers to submit the first 500 words of the first page of their novel, about 24 hours in he already has 326 entries and only one other judge to help him out.

And he's getting some real humdingers, too -- here's a fascinating start I'm sure someone, who is not me, would read: The smell of humans swirled over the village of Simmatra, teasing Rane’s nose with anticipation.

(Judging from first line alone, I would argue this sounds like the start of a Christopher Pike novel.)

Well, contest ends tomorrow.
