Re: What's the plan Mr Bacon?

Was hoping for it in October, but very much understand it needs to fit in with your life. It is a gift whenever it comes.

Looking forward to it whenever.

Re: Hardware: best foldy keyboard for iPad Mini?

I've just started beta-testing a just-short-of-miraculous little keyboard called the Text Blade. The principles behind it are genius: 1. give fingers all the space they need on the home row, but reduce how far they need to reach. Text Blade achieves this by providing large keys that are touchpad-lik...

Re: Start Wearing Purple (NiaD 2017)

What a crazy and fun thing to take part in. Many thanks, Pigfender!

How fortunate that at least one version of each of the chapters showed up!

Inspirational Quotation going into Saturday:

Sometimes it's really important to believe in yourself because nobody else does either.

Um.... not quite. Still a week to go, right? Twenty-EIGHTH?

Deal me in either way, but I'm thinking it's next Saturday.

Re: TShirts [SPLIT TOPIC]

I love my Infinite Monkey t-shirt and will sometimes deliberately choose it on days when I'm tackling tricky projects. But I regularly get tongue-tied trying to explain it AND NiaD at the same time.

Re: NiaD Episode VI: Return of the NiaD

Just hand draw it on your screen with a Sharpie you don't want it lopsided The main problem isn't lopsidedness, but what happens with scrolling the window. I think, instead, Jaysen should make the asterisk on a piece of fairly stiff transparent film. Cut the film so that the asterisk is at one end ...

Re: 3 Ghosts (NiaD 2016)

fun bits of serendipity between chapters I noticed a fun one in "my" version — blue. At the end of my chapter (6), I wanted Edward to metaphorically "take the bait" laid out by Lucas. I decided to avoid the cliché by going more specific with a lure used for trout. To set that up...

Re: NiaD Episode VI: Return of the NiaD

A massive thank you to Pigfender for his efforts. I hope that this year was less stressful on him and that he has enjoyed it as much as we have. So say we all! With the process fresh in your mind, Pigfender, I wonder if it's time to seriously think about splitting up the work. None of us wants you ...

Re: NiaD Episode VI: Return of the NiaD

How has everyone found it this year? Has it been fun? It's been more than fun. I've grown and learned ... I've identified things that I want to work on in my writing. I've also learned a great deal of strange facts about the afterlife that I now have to remember aren't true. That a skilled Marley b...

Re: NiaD Episode VI: Return of the NiaD

hjordisa, you have a different chapter to Maerahn, and also a very different personal style. I've read some of your work. You don't write 'short', you have a style that is 'hard-boiled' (like several of my favourite writers), and brings you in to the moment. 1,000 words that are true to your style ...

Mine arrived, albeit as a MicrosoftWord-specific .docx file.

Thanks.
