Nimrod48: U wish.
StinkyRU: OK, I give. What do I have to do now?
Nimrod48: What about writing a book in a “chat” format?
StinkyRU: What?
Nimrod48: U No. Just like this. It would be an ongoing chat.
StinkyRU: Why??
Nimrod48: Well, it could be a different format; also a current understood flow of conversation.
StinkyRU: But, it has already been done.
Nimrod48: ?
StinkyRU: “Sleepy n Seattle” was an email communication movie.
Nimrod48: No I’m thinking something else.

BrzBrain: Yeah, have all the characters talk about “the event” in a chat.

BrzBrain: When do I get paid?
SkiLite: Where do the vampires come in?
Nimrod48: It is just a style to tell the story.
StinkRU: It might work if….
HinDry: Dude
DooDooBoy: Each person would have a different point of view
WeeeGirl: And each person would tell the story

I think you need to look up "epistolary" in your dictionary. Plus, it's a good idea. Needs a story, though. By the way, two of my favorite books are 84 Charing Cross Road and Dracula. Both epistolary.
