Re: NiAD 2019**

Mrs PF thinks we should do it again. I’m not sure what her motive is, but since I’ve only ever seen her make one bad decision in her life (and 20 years later I’m still very grateful she did) I usually end up doing what she says. Yay!!! Mrs. PF is awesome!!!! Thank you, Mrs. PF!!! :D Ooooh! :D I con...

The thing that is NiaD is special and fun and more than a little 'barking mad jolly hockey sticks.' It's whimsical a...

Re: Revisit previous years events?

Yes!
Honestly, when I read the finished book, I always think 'oh, if only I'd known that....' Then again it is spoiling an element of the fun - the magician's reveal at midnight wouldn't be quite the same.

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Big thanks to everyone who took part... HUGE THANKS to Keith, Ioa and the whole team at LL for generously hosting the event for the past 8 years, and for making Scrivener and Scapple, without which attempting this kind of event would be inconceivable! DITTO! I sincerely want to thank Mr. Pigfender ...

It's winging it's way to you, Rog.

In in time, I hope, and not too many excess commas.

Much fun. Thanks! :D

Well, thanks for that, PF. Nothing like a bit of pressure to aid the digestion. I'm so much more than discombobulated I think I need to lie down.

I found the links to three great sites to help you through the day, but wouldn't you know it, I've gone and lost 'em :oops: Anyway, just Google 'em y'selves. a) The Mills&Boon Writers Guide b) Catherine Cookson's Tips For Struggling Authors, c) The Oxford English Dictionary's Guide to Bondage a...

Umm... Pigfender's mislaid his files, so I'd plump for GR being on topic... partially. Ah... you misinterpret my attempted poke in my own eye.
