Chuckles.... Greetings from a fellow Blue, Beth! I also read other versions of "my" chapter. Haven't done so yet.

Also made it before the deadline, and also doing a Camp NaNoWriMo. This was more fun. Thank you, again, Mssr Pigfender!

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9½ - SPECIAL APOCALYPSE EDITION

I had to think it over carefully ... the full mug is really my motivation for doing this. But I guess the little cup is probably nice too... So on balance ... Heck, yeah!

Thank you so much for doing this. It's really nice to have something to look forward to in a long quarantine!

Re: NiaD Award badges

I've spent some time thinking about this, and I think discrete images for each year, with forum member adding all the appropriate images in a long string is the only way to go — for your own sanity. There are probably fancier CSS-based solutions of a full row, dropping out specified years that don't...

What does that word mean... "edits" ??

Re: Revisit previous years events?

the sense of not creating something new is... about the whole. This is what I was alluding to a while back. And it's why I was wondering if we could think of a creative way forward. Instead of trying to recreate the same feeling by revisiting the old works, I wonder if there's a way that we could d...

Re: Revisit previous years events?

Would people want to 'catch-up' if we were to schedule a couple of the really early NiaDs as re-runs? The dynamic is different, because I imagine that many of us have read those novels and know where they're going. So much of NiaD depends on the reveal at the end.

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Everyone raise your new NiaD cups for a cheer! "To next year's NiaD!"

It is a blast to do, it's good for my writing, and should continue... especially if we can find ways to share the burden of overworked Pigfender.

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

It's a pretty strange feeling to have part-written a novel and then have to wait to find out what the heck I was writing about!

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

I was lucky. My whole scene took place inside a room. No knowledge of Chicago needed.


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

In my chapter, the President's wife IS a saucer-piloting dolphin. Is that going to cause continuity problems?

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.
