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

@pigfender OMG! I’ve just realised who you are! When I read chapter 1 in the Red book on Sunday morning I thought, “Wow! This is extremely well written. This talented writer certainly knows a lot about the plot, and it ties in remarkably well with the information Rog sent me, and which I info-dumped...

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

But if there were 72 of us, which is enough for exactly 6 books, why are there 7? A select group of obviously talented writers are in 2 books! Because there were, as we noted, more than that at the starting gate - enough that seven books was the right number to plan for. But once you distribute the...

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

I think there can’t be any chapter with eight versions, since there are only seven versions of the book! Or there is a secret Gold Edition I am not privy to?? :cry: I think the count went from 81 to 72 before all was said and done. The sign-on was a record high, so it makes sense the fallback in ab...

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

Wow, just finished reading the Blue version (I bet we all read 'our' version first!) and I think it held together with the fewest contradictions of any of the NIADs I've read. Kudos to all of us! And endless gratitude to Pigfender for coming up with the idea for NIAD and leading it all these years....

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

Roberta is Speaker of the House (aka Nancy Pelosi) and third in line after POTUS and VPOTUS. In my version, a real Mata Hari. She doesn’t appear in my brief -and there’s a huge cast of characters who work for the President. In my chapter the most exciting event was the demise of the mobile phone an...

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

After all the work Roberta has put into seducing her way to the top, I just hope she's not killed off by some spoilsport in a later chapter. Who is Roberta? Did she work in security at the White House? Was she involved in an Apocalypse? I can hardly wait to find out what was really going on! Robert...

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

Just want to send out huge thank you to Rog because without him this would never happen, and its been the best day of lockdown so far. So thank you Rog and you and yours stay safe. I’d like to second that! Rog is amazing! Writing about the White House during an apocalypse helped me forget about eve...

I see that Pigfender is offline at the moment.

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

Finishing up my final brief and will send soon. Just waiting for my heart to settle since I got quite the scare. Been doing research on the White House security systems, looking for floor plans, trying to see if there’s anything that might help when I got a loud knock on the front door, followed by...

Btw I’m also doing Campnanowrimo, but I shall add this word count to my total. :o Too right! I wonder how many of us are doing Campnanowrimo as well? I find Write A Novel In A Day cures my procrastination while also causing insomnia and a nervous breakdown! :D Just joking. But I was up most of the ...

Hi Rog/Pigfender,

I finished it and have emailed it to you.

This was a challenge.

Phew!

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

Hi Pigfender,

Thanks for the email and your advice here.

Much appreciated!

I guess the point of this exercise is to get us out of our comfort zone.

It’s certainly doing that!

Perhaps the next NIAD can be a Fantasy genre and we can invent our own world?
Back to the research and writing... :D
