Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

Bush Tucker you don't want to know about. Big maggots, basically. I still remember my grandfather trying to convince me to eat a Witchetty grub when I was about 5. Of course, they're normally cooked, I believe. This one he just dug up in the garden. Not sure he would have let me go through with it ...

Liar, liar. You've got nothing.

It's a stitch up. Just like Mr Union What's It and his box of you-know-whats.

What are you guys on about with suits, anyway?

Doesn't anyone want to talk about my dingoes and talking Kangaroos!

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

I'm going to be a while compiling things and making them look pretty now, so please take this time to discuss amongst yourselves what lessons Matt should take from this year's exercise for when he runs it next year... Ha... Next year's story will be set in a quiet rural Australian town. There will ...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

Damn, I woke up early. Oh well, now I get to sit back and watch the chaos for an hour. Information pack seemed about right to me. I have a love/hate relationship with the whole lack of information thing, so I am always screaming for more information about what has happened, what's to come, and where...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

I thought the + was marking the people pigfender expected to be nice to him today. Was he overestimating with one? More seriously, though, pigfender... I know you are low on sleep and have 1000 things more important to be doing, and I am truly in awe of the work you have put into NIAD again this ye...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

I am from Melbourne.

I think we can all guess where StaceyUK comes from.

The one that has been puzzling me all day is why some people have "r" and some people have "s" next to their name on the list of participants in the second post.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

Hulu, my friends, all I can say is, Hulu. Can't spell it without a Y, but I sure can say it. :D Pigfender, if it's within the scope of what you can fit in, can we get a general idea of where all participants hail from (or is that hale)? Where's that frackin' dictionary? Do you mean writers, or char...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 3: With a Vengeance

I think I have the best time zone out of all of you. It started at 10am, so I could work straight through the day with various breaks for food and recreation. It has just passed 1am, and my 3000 words are done and submitted. So now I get to go and sleep in through your panicked deadlines and wake up...

I have seen none of those. I also haven't seen any Star Wars, or anything at all with Sylvester Stallone or Clint Eastwood.
