Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Pigfender, I just sent you mine - sorry it's late (as always). Thanks again for organising this and all the great and hard work you put in! Let me know if you don't get my email for some reason. What? So just because he invented the best writing software known to (wo)man he gets to submit late? Fai...

New Scrivener version for Brother AX-325 ??

To avoid distractions I sometimes write on a Brother AX-325 electric typewriter. Just wondering if there are any plans for a version of Scrivener to work on this model? It's quite simple to feed an old analogue (paper) index card into the system, but I was hoping for something a little more streamli...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Rog replied to my email with "looking forward to reading what you came up with," and it occurred to me:

How the HELL is Rog supposed to read THREE novels in the next few hours. He must be some kind of literary God-Man.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Submitted! Seeing people mention their 2000-4000 words puts me to shame. I only made 1700. But I and proud of myself and hope it's not too bad. Can't wait to read the whole book(s) and am DYING to see how someone else handled the exact same chapter. (I bet theirs is better, damn them!) Thanks to the...

Was there Facebook in 1867? Or was it still MySpace back then?

Whoa! Hold your horseys. I'm an Australian! (Just want to clear up any misunderstanding lest you think I am American.)

But good to know I'm not alone.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Alright. About 1000 words done. Off to work now for a few hours to wash dishes (its 2.20pm here), then back into it for the final stretch. My piece is going to be in fairly contemporary language -- cant to convincing western language -- but hopefully that works out as a nice break in the story. Happ...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Hi,

Excited to start my first NiaD! Just want to ask, if I have questions about the material I am sent, can I ask clarifying questions or is that all I have to go on? What is the normal practice?

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

If it is not too late could I pretty please be included? I actually have the day off work for once! Sorry if this comes too late.
