    Imagine that you hear about a rumor of an author who is writing a never-ending novel. You’re not sure if it’s true or not, but it everything you’ve heard so far sounds almost impossible.

    This “author.exe” appeared on the internet around a year ago, and bulk uploaded 100 chapters. Since then, he’s been updating chapters at a pace faster than most people can read. In other words, he uploads a new chapter about once every 15 minutes... without fail, like clockwork for 24 hours, so basically 100 new chapters every day.

    At this present time, there’s already over 30,000 chapters. The writing is spot on, no grammar mistakes, and it seems decently well written.

    This is only a rumor, but apparently the author intends to make a never ending novel.

    Does the idea of a never-ending novel seem appealing to you, or is it unappealing?

    That’s a lie, if the author is human, he gotta die some day

    Then there's no problem. Usually the issue with long novels is lots of poorly written parts.

    Unappealing, but then again you can have it never-ending without the audience knowing about it. I'm sure we'll be reading thousands more chapters of novels similar to MGA and MW/TMW etc.

    It might become a bit difficult to start though, like watching Conan the anime with 1000 eps or reading western novels with over 13 books similar to Wheel Of Time. etc.

    Link it!
    Uhm, if it has descent plot, I would most likely give it a try.

    I do like endings, but I also like long stories too.

    If it's too long, there's a high chance that I'll get bored of it after some time... :blobwoah::blobwoah::blobwoah::blobwoah:

    Why going to make an author program when you have chinese authors that write 10k + chapters?

    Thought all of the story is repeated from the first arc but there is more than 10k chapters~ :blobowoevil_horns:

    It could be that the author writes in advance then uses some software to upload it at set times.

    Eventually things will repeat, and I will lose my interest until then I'll read it.

    and someone else of sufficient talent can continue their work, like what Brandon Sanderson did for Robert Jordan.

    Hmm we all have so many reads waiting for update so to throw it away for one never ending ehh sounds boring to just read one thing all the time.

    But would the series be the same as when the original author is still alive?
    Then we would be focusing on doing that instead of reading novels
