Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Hi @Pigfender, I sent you my chapter about 5 minutes ago. Sorry it was a little bit late, but there were some French spellings I wanted to check. I hope it’s okay as I sent you a rtf file and I wrote it all in Scrivener, except for the rough draft which I did longhand. I’m looking forward to reading...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Well, I’ve finished writing it! It’s 2214 words which is not bad, considering I had complete Writer’s Block when I started. I wasn’t supposed to know the creepy man was a vampire, but luckily I guessed and @Pigfender confirmed it. But I’ve been very good, and haven’t mentioned the word ‘Vampire’ any...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Hi everyone! When I first read my brief from Mr Piggy, I experienced a severe case of Writer's Block. When this happens, I usually muddle through, but this time I emailed him a few questions for clarification,and his answers have made me feel SO much better -especially since I correctly guessed the ...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Hi, Just want to say a big thank you to @pigfender for letting me take part in this year’s Novel In A Day, even though I had missed the official deadline. It was such fun and the books are so good. It’s also uncanny how it all holds together even though we didn’t know the plot. For example, I had no...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Wow I barely slept and I'm up now waiting for everything to come together! I think we're the only group using the forum at the moment. 11 of us are online. It's probably the rush of adrenaline, that feeling of euphoria, that's keeping us awake day and night - even though we've completed the task an...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

I had to Google to check the weather. I hope I didn't get that part wrong... I used Google to check the weather, too! Found out it snows a lot in Chicago, and it’s windy. But I knew that from that Doris Day song. I put some snow in the story — didn’t want to waste the research after staying up half...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

I’ve finished. Just need to go through and edit the chapter and check some Chicago references.: I felt a bit like a cheater. I lived in the Chicago area for ten years, and was actually writing my chapter from my Sister's house in Indianapolis. I had quite the head start. I had to Google to check th...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Hi Rog aka pigfender I’ve sent you the chapter. It went around 18.30 UK time. So, not too bad considering... I hope it’s okay. I wrote it longhand but used Scrivener to write 2nd and 3rd drafts before compiling. Maybe writing longhand is the secret to finishing writing a book. I find that when I wri...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

I’ve finished. Just need to go through and edit the chapter and check some Chicago references. Spent an hour in middle of the night watching YouTube videos about Chicago. I didn’t use many of them but it was necessary research. *sigh*. As I was working for part of the day, I wrote my first draft in ...
