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 ...

Re: NiaD 7: The Magnificent NiaD

Hi @pigfender, The Facebook group is called Scrivener Users. It's a closed group but I expect they'd let you join. :wink: The members are all obsessed with Scrivener and how to use it. I think I'll be able to write the chapter using Scrivener iOS on my phone and email it from there. Last June, I ope...

Re: NiaD 7: The Magnificent NiaD

Hi, Yes, I'd like to participate again. Just to clarify, the story doesn't have to be written in Scrivener, does it? I'm asking because I'm not sure if I'll have my computer with me on that day. Oh, I can probably use the iOS version, can't I? Btw lots of people in a Facebook Scrivener group said th...

Re: NiaD Episode VI: Return of the NiaD

Hi,

So are you saying that the 17th June 2017 was actually in 2016? :lol:

Oh, well, I'm just pleased that I managed to work out how to post the Write A Novella In A Day badge on my signature.
