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

Final polish starting now. I will submit on time, if only just. However, I'm really glad I'm not a US resident. If I were, given my internet searches of the last few hours, I'm pretty sure I would be having some armed visitors knocking my door down about now... I suppose I could always threaten to c...

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

Talking about being out of comfort zones - my chapter seems to be all about electrical engineering and I have a BA in English!! Let the technobabble commence! Hah! I think I might have the same chapter as you. And I AM an electrical engineer, or at least I used to be, which I would argue makes thin...

You can't kill them if I kill them first.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

And done - 2400 words, a few of which may actually be connected to the brief.

As always, looking forward to seeing how it all hangs together.

Many thanks for the opportunity - I had a blast doing this, even though it's not a genre I would EVER write in.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Nearly there! I feel as if we ought to be doing some sort of writerly equivalent of the vocal warm-ups that choirs do. Perhaps we should all sit and type "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog", 100 times each, and then wander off into a discourse on the character arc of the fox and ...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

That was a lot of fun - thanks to all.

And especially Rog, of course - I hope you have a suitably darkened room to lie down in now.

I'm not sure what future use my research into Chicago schools will ever be, but what the heck. It was a blast.

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Done, and sent. A lot of fun, though I may have wandered somewhat outside my brief. Apologies in advance to anyone on whose toes I may have inadvertently trampled.

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Can anyone tell me if Matthew & Lucy actually meet Alison in 1995? I have a chapter where they find her, but I'm not clear if it is just "finding" her or actually meeting her? They are already best friends in 1995, although only for about a year or two. Really? The character notes for...
