Ehh... hey... peeps... what vampires?

I think I might be chapter #1. Haha.

Anyway, submitted 3.6K words just now and gave Rog a headache formatting my text. Oops, sorry, Rog. Love you! :oops:

Of course I'm researching French morgues at 8:30 am in the morning...

I love NIAD!

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Submitted 5 minutes before the hard deadline. Never finished this late before.

Feel my apology was insufficient. So... Sorry again, Rog. :/

Look forward to the book though!

Chicago in February? Any scene in its right mind would be inside in a room!!


Mine takes place in May. :P Much warmer!

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Ugh. I'm going to be late. Not excuses but I have a scene that requires a lot of research (for me) and I'm rusty so my writing is achingly slow. I also very rarely write first-person so that's throwing me for a loop. Anyway, know that I'm going as fast as I can but may be the last straggler tonight....

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

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. :)
