I wonder if anyone has done anything like this...

I know some people (Charlie Stross and Cory Doctorow did it a couple of times, Warren Ellis (mistersleepless) got a bit of a way through one) have done novels-by-blog before. What I'm wondering is if anyone has gone and done a novella-by-phone. Because I'm thinking of doing so.

Basics if I decide to go through with it:

It will be short. If it hits 10,000 words I shall be delerious. Each update will be two or three paragraphs, tapped out on lunch breaks and when bored. It shall be a story, with characters and everything, and it shall be set both before and after Contact (two entries down, no ability to link right now, go/read/comment if you haven't yet), wrapped around that honeyed centre.

Good idea? Am I completely off my fucking rocker? Other thoughts?
