There's a great book called "The 60-Second Novelist" by Dan Hurley that thisa cartoon reminded me of. Beginning on the streets of Chicago in 1983, with a manual typewriter and a little sign that said "60-Second Novels, Written While You Wait," Hurley began writing instant stories for passersby. Although started as an exercise in creativity, the stories soon evolved into a kind of instant biography. To celebrate his 10th anniversary, in 1993 he wrote a story from the 18th-floor roof of a Times Square skyscraper on a sheet of high-strength paper that descended to the sidewalk over the course of 18 hours. These days he still occasionally writes 60-Second Novels at special events around the United States.
