Wow, great find. That could work and should be simple to implement.

Looking at cemeteries is a good idea.

I was a little astonished to see L. Ron Hubbard all over the page, but right, he was also an author. The contest seems unrelated to Scientology.

I especially like the idea to keep a name dictionary.

comment When and how often edit the style and content of a story?
Great text. Thank you for the find. And you get the good feeling, that the man who wrote this already has written novels with some success. :-)

comment When and how often edit the style and content of a story?
I accepted this answer, because of the hint to use a revision-control - that could help the problem a little bit. At least I can easily switch back, if I decide later to do so.

comment How Much Can You Make From Writing a Book?
I don't know the exact numbers for the cases you presented, but generally: If you don't write a bestseller, don't expect to get rich from writing. And not much people write bestseller. You should write, because you have something to tell, not for the money. And if you're lucky, many people are interested and buy your book.
