When Mark Zuckerberg wrote his key IPO filing document on a mobile device, it became apparent that people are starting to prefer their mobile devices as their primary word processor. Georgina Campbell made a bet with her 14-year old daughter that she could write an entire book on the BlackBerry memopad application.
She followed through with the bet and completed that task. Ms. Campbell, a mother of three in South London, even landed herself a publishing deal after writing the entire book on a BlackBerry smartphone. The book is titled “The Kickdown Girls.” The original draft is about 200 pages and took 4 months to write.
The book is 55,600 words. She made a bet with her daughter after watching a 2011 British movie called Attack The Block last year. The film is about a street gang in South London fighting an alien invasion.
“Lorra [her daughter] and I were watching this movie Attack The Block and she thought it was brilliant,” stated Ms. Campbell. “I thought it was rubbish and said that I thought I could write a better script, so we challenged each other to write something.”
