The Uber novel: an Uber comeback

Nanowrimo has nothing on Uber.
We're going to be publishing a new piece every weekday just like we used to do. If we get up to 50,000 words, then everyone who contributed will be able to say they've written a chapter for a novel.
Wait, I just calculated and realized that with only 19 weekdays left in November, all the postings would have to be about 2,632 words long.
That's just too long I think. Most people have only, say, about 1,000 words in them. Max. Well, that's about all anyone can stand to read on the internet from a person they don't know. So, if Uber gets 19,000 words up for the rest of the month, it'll be an accomplishment because I don't think Uber has put out that much content for some time now, eh?
Ben Brown, publisher, man about town, internet rockstar, and water sales scout, has recently accepted a job editing fiction for the Suicide Girls website. He's got so many things going on. We shouldn't be mad at him for not updating Uber. I'm not mad at him, because now I get to edit Uber.
My name is Dee Dee Peel.
I am trying to usher Uber's comeback onto the online humor scene! (I'm not saying Uber went anywhere. It was just an unannounced, long-ish hiatus.)
Be part of Uber's comeback month by submitting to the probably-somewhere-around-19,000-words short novel.
Dee Dee Peel is an usher and an editor.
