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

...and lets not forget: pulled together in just 2 weeks! That’s pretty amazing that you do this in two weeks.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

TGC, Plot for your next novel? :D GR Not just a "next" novel — he's become my muse against my better judgment, and he's spawned at least two works of art and three pieces of writing from me, including NiaD 9... The funniest thing is that his upcoming programme is going to be about crime, ...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Now, children, just do your homework assignment and don’t complain. I’m sure your teacher had a very good reason for assigning you those 229,582,512 novels. You can have your pudding when you’re finished with that. Only a supply teacher like my "boyfriend" can think of something like that...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Dude! You wrote every chapter! The entire thing was oinked into existence via your hard work. You really should give yourself more credit. Can you at least make a chipped cup for yourself? I concur. I’m thinking a full set of NIAD teapots for pigfender in addition to his chapter cups. Oh, and the t...

Re: NiaD Award badges

I think it looks nice to stack mugs up every 5 or so years. Since it would make the signature look a bit taller, the labels of "years active" could then be on the right side of the stack of mugs. mug 2014 mug 2015 mug 2017 mug 2019 MUG 2020 This is my crude rendition of a single 5-year mug...

Waiting for gr. So that we can mix and match different chapters. Thanks. I’d like to get that up as soon as possible, but have to work on it while playing catch up for work.
