Re: Novel-in-a-Day (NIAD)... Day

We could try a "Four Rooms/ RPG" approach. The movie Four Rooms, was about a hotel, and four vignettes, each independent of each other, but tied in with the bell hop of the hotel. Quentin Tarintino then tied in the bell hop through each of the four stories. We take an item or person and t...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Well, that's a long enough day for me. I usually stay up for a bit after the book goes live so that Pete and Nom can point out to me that I've accidentally put multiple chapter 8s in the same book or put a glaring typo on the cover of every single version. Since none of you are doing that, I'm goin...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Sent! And in the nick of time too. Gosh, this was hard. Thing is, I got traction on the chapter barely two hours ago and so now I'm pumped but I've spent the day suffering for my art, as it were :lol: Anyway, Rog, feel free to tell me off if there are some blunders (I'm sure there are). If you need...

Oh balls.

Could they for instance work in a mall where there is no natural light at all?

April or May lighter days could they get there, maybe wear a hoody:)

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Ok, not that any of you will care but I've figured out what caused the problem with the unreadable column in the briefing pack table... It's completely visible in MacOS Dark Mode (which I'm running) but invisible in Light Mode. Strangely appropriate, but irritating none-the-less. Please accept my a...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Anyone else complain of all the tables being black on black? HELLO! FOR SOME REASON, SOME PEOPLE ARE REPORTING THE TABLE FOR THEIR BRIEF SHOWING AS BLACK ON BLACK. I SUSPECT THIS MIGHT BE SOMETHING TO DO WITH HOW YOUR RTF READER IS PARSING THE TABLE. IF THIS IS AFFECTING YOU, PLEASE TRY OPENING YOU...

Re: Revisit previous years events?

One more question, if I may, to those who have reservations: Is your unease about whether you’d personally enjoy taking part as much, knowing it was a tale already told, or is part of the unease that re-running would diminish the earlier work? Yes. But primarily the latter. Yes the latter really al...

Re: Revisit previous years events?

Back on topic: I don’t know how I feel about rewriting the early books. Part of me is interested (anything that gets me writing fiction has a strong start) but at the same time it seems... “wrong” somehow. Maybe it feels more like an academic writing exercise than creating something new? I don’t kn...
