Yes, NIAD needs a Wiki entry next year. :) Or do you think it's not notable enough? Surely once it reaches its fifth annual with multiple editions at the fourth it is? :roll:

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

Thanks to Pigfender for a monumental NIAD this year. Multiple copies, my word! The slightly late start didn't hinder me a bit and we can't hold it against our master moderator of this tiresome project, I find. Onwards and upwards it has been this edition and a feather in your cap is very well-deserv...

A line reads; "Lerner produces it from her trouser suit pocket." I was tempted to make it; "Lerner produces it from her nice trouser suit pocket."

Just finished my first draft. Comes in at 1.7k. So now a brief break, then a quick edit and done. :)

Liked writing this. It flowed like hot custard!

Going for 4/4. Do we get a brass medal for completing five events, like some annual events do? ;P

He met with the untimely death that suited him, no doubt.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

I didn't get Gallagher on my chapter, so I resorted to a reference "in absence". I see now that I was not alone. But of all the nice suit references, I'd like to say that I enjoyed the Alfred joke the most (by Victoria ). Just both brilliant and funny. Victoria takes a bow. Thanks. :)

Re: Cleaning up Forum posts

The 'novel in a day' posts did take over the RSS feed for a day or 3, I'm afraid. :( And I'm sure nobody objects to the NIAD threads being refiled in another section of the board, as you suggest, or the RSS to be filtered somehow so that it doesn't include NIAD posts. However some of us are also her...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

Yes of course, only if Pig wants to hand over the steering wheel. Let's hear from him first. But if the post opens up I'd be happy to step up with you.

Heck yeah, I'd love to help out. Any genre suggestions welcome.

Edited to tone down my enthusiasm; didn't want to sound like I wanted to push Pig out, cause I don't. He's the grand master here. :)

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

What the heck?!?!? I was writing the last chapter and I didn't even realise?? I thought I was situated at the first 1/4 or 1/3 of the book! That's amazing. Am glad I ended it the way I did. :D Although I didn't know how much animosity had gone before and since I thought I was at the beginning of the...

Well, no playing of cards (and referring to suits) in my chapter after all. But still managed to get a 'man in a suit' in. :D

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

The "this has been done, don't talk about it" sounds like a good idea... although mine was blank so I didn't get to see its effect. Ooh, does that mean you're first this year?? I don't think so. The same thing happened to me and in fact I felt compelled to ask pigfender if I had got the f...
