Mobile Phone Novelist
The next time a student claims to not have time to do a writing assignment you may want to mention how author Robert Bernocco wrote CompagnidiViaggo (Fellow Travelers). The Italian IT professional penned the book using T9 on his mobile phone during commutes to and from work. Bernocco would write and save short paragraphs then upload his work to a computer later for further editing. By the way, he wrote it using long hand and not text messaging shorthand.
