Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

I have an engagement party (someone else's) and various other things to work around on the day, but count me in, we can make this work somehow... right...?

Re: Feedback wanted: Integration with Aeon Timeline

are there an easy tutorial about integration timeline and scrivener? in windows Unfortunately, the video tutorial is somewhat outdated now, but most of what it shows is still accurate - aside from the location of the Scrivener templates, which can be found in the Scrivener section of our support pa...

Re: Feedback wanted: Integration with Aeon Timeline

Without wanting to pre-empt the suggestions (and I value all feedback on this issue), I thought I would add a little to the background and motivation behind the current syncing capability and what I am looking to change in Aeon for the current version. When I did the integration for version 1, I was...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 4.0: Live Free or NiaD

I'm tossing up between one of two options: C) read the opposing chapter immediately and then cry at my pathetic comparison; or Not C) not read it first, not read it second, never ever read it at all And as for reading my chapter... I have never looked at my chapter in the completed book. I read the ...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 4.0: Live Free or NiaD

Anyone know of an online app that will scan copy for UK English usage? Otherwise I'll leave well enough alone. Just replace all your American "z" with "s" and put the "u" back in colour where it belongs and you'll be fine. Even the poms send people to jail rather than ...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 4.0: Live Free or NiaD

Just emailed mine off... For the first 3 NIADs, I started work right on 10am (I have the best time zone for NIAD) and had finished the first draft by around 1-2pm... This time, started at 4pm, submitting at 4am. Thanks again to piggy for his story, management, email sys admin recovery skills, handho...

Where's the daughditor? Surely she'd be present for your first NIAD. College is no excuse, if that's when she's galloped off to.

Suits are so last year. We're calling everyone bogans and redheads this year, apparently.

To litteral. Q: Please tell me about your history? A: I'm a redneck who defied the odd and wound up as a propeller head manager instead of a coal mole. Three examples in there. Looking for the bolded one. Oh right, sorry. Redhead = "Bogan". A little different, in that everyone has a bit o...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 4.0: Live Free or NiaD

How would main refer to herself in the third person colloquially? Well, there's a couple of things. Anyone in Australia in the habit of walking around referring to themselves in the third person too regularly would probably have been shit-stirred as an up-themselves wanker for long enough that they...

Outline completed last night before beauty rest. Should be fairly quick to the first throwaway draft.

Which reminds me, are you setup for footnotes? Otherwise everyone is going to think my deliberate Australian-ism is just a typo :-)

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 4.0: Live Free or NiaD

If anyone finds a reference to a PAUL ROBINSON in their brief, that should read PAUL CAMBRIDGE. But don't worry too much as I can fix that with Find and Replace later if I need to! And your Neighbours addiction is uncovered... No wonder my central character's Australian. I'm blaming you for my word...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 4.0: Live Free or NiaD

400 words in 4 hours of writing... at this rate I should be able to scrape past the word tally if I stay up for the next 11 hours until 7am. NIAD has never been so torturous for me, but I've found a way to make it easier for everyone. In my chapter, I'm going to have all of the characters knocked un...
