Ooh, I had a Roberta chapter too (but an early one)! Sounds like you took her in an interesting direction!

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

Done, with two minutes to spare! I figured I'd go with exactly 1,500 words since I was pretty close. Looking forward to see if anybody else built out the steam-engine plot, and how well the supply lines for coal held up. Can we do citations and acknowledgements? I'd like to credit this study of foo...

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

All right, officially dropping the pen and calling it done on a lazy 2347 words! Sending the email through now—boy oh boy, this really stretched the limits of my American knowledge (and my general writing skills)! It's also really interesting to think about how people might react in this type of a c...

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

I'm in polish mode for my chapter now and wow, I found this one difficult! I'm certain I've stuffed up some of the intricacies of the Americal political model somewhere, or accidentally overstepped in the worldbuilding - hopefully everything in the chapter is circular enough that if nothing I've men...

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

Hmm, feel like I might have been flagged by the CIA or NSA or some other government agency after all the crazy google searches ive just done for information. EG White House security; distance between situation briefing room and PEOC,; security protocols for PEOC; can the PEOC withstand a nuclear bl...

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

Haha, wow! Well done to those who have got their chapters in - my one is haaaaaard, lol.

I'll be writing for the next few (many fews) hours and running word sprints on my Discord channel, if anyone wants to join me and jog each other along :-)

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

I’m in all the way!

Do you accept chapters written on the flayed skin of a toilet paper hoarder?

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

This is great! I’m loving reading through what everyone did and seeing how all our separate styles mesh together! :D I’m wondering what the policy is on sharing the material? Is it acceptable to link through to the download on social media platforms and the like so friends and family can find it? :l...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Whew! Well, that was a scramble at the end!! Got my chapter in with ten minutes left on the countdown clock (sorry Rog!). Man, timezones suck :'O Hopefully it's still okay - it feels much less polished than the fiction I usually write, but then again I usually have four+ drafts of that rather than t...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Oh good. I won't spread it around, but I can barely keep my.eyes open and figure that a coherent chapter will be better than none! You’ll have it before the hard deadline, at least :-) Sorry for making life that little more difficult!! So, I have a soft/hard deadline query: I’ve been caught up most ...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

So, I have a soft/hard deadline query: I’ve been caught up most of the day, and it’s now hit past midnight in my timezone - by the time I wake up it’ll be about 8pm UK time... So long as it’s in a few hours after that (but not after midnight UK time), is that still acceptable (if not ideal)? Sorry f...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

See now, Jan 26 is not only a weekend this year, but also a public holiday here in Oz, so a perfect time to lock oneself away for writing methinks! :-D
