TRENTON–If you have ever wanted to collaborate on a book or have your words live forever, join the New Jersey State Library in writing a book this November for National Write Your Own Book Month. The challenge is to write a book with 50,000 words in one month and the State Library wants all NJ residents to participate.
The NJ State Library will compile a book with the collective wisdom of people sharing advice for another human being. Words of wisdom for a child, friend, politician, parent, teenager, adult, parent. The catch is, the advice has to be by text and it must be 140 characters or less. The text messages will be collected until those “words of wisdom” reach the 50,000 limit.
The name of the book will be H2H (Human to Human) wisdom in 140 characters (unless someone texts a better title). The book will be published online and will include the initials or first name of the quote writer, so they may share their fame with friends and family.
H2H advice for the book should be submitted by texting “H2H” to 51684, hit “space” and type your advice. Standard message charges apply. Participants will receive a message to let them know their submission has been accepted and will be kept updated about the book, but not by more than 1 message per week, and one can stop the messages anytime by replying “Stop.”
All entries must be submitted no later than Nov. 30, and cannot contain profanity or personal references.
