Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Do you want to borrow my cat? She'll probably just like whatever story option involves tuna and naps. Cats are simultaneously too picky and not picky enough.

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

In my chapter brief it says two bestselling novels. But in the character sheet there's three. Want us to stick with three I'm guessing? He's written all three by your chapter, but the third is only just coming out and isn't a bestseller (yet). Sorry I guess that wasn't clear. Whew. Awesome. :D than...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

My biggest problem with the first person is that on the rare occasion I write it Or have to read it, it's present tense. So for the moment, everything is mixed tenses. Some present. some past.
Which is great given the character's situation. LOL Too bad I'm not using to the best advantage. :p :D

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

I had my day planned out, but now I'm starting to stress a little bit. Even though I know my other tasks will be done before the brief gets to me. But now I'm panicking about being out. I want to stay at home and wait for my NiaD briefing. Safely on the comfort of my couch with my blanky and my cat ...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

The best way to influence whether NiaD continues is to have lots and lots of people sign up (or not)! Ah, but which is which? Which is which? I think what pigfender is trying to say, though he is too shy to just out with it, is that he would like us to pester him all year long about the next NIAD. ...
