I read this morning that over 74 million words have been posted on WordPress alone today.  Here is an example of what the net has to offer:

This fictional journey features a cast which includes the Archbishop of Canterbury, Joanna Lumley, Anaïs Nin and Arthur Schopenhauer, and wanders into worlds as diverse as blacksmithing, jazz, antique fountain pens and tattooing.
