Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Done submitted and on time. Good thing there is a deadline or I would go on fiddling till I finally ruined the whole thing. I might have gone on a bit, a habit of mine I fear. I am very interested to see all the versions.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Had my beta reader go through it with a fine toothed comb. He offered some constructive criticism (consarned little scalawag.) Sorry for the harsh language. One more rest period for the little gray cells to do their work. A last reread and then it is all yours dear Mr. Pigfender.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Play list: Pandora is shuffling these stations: The Wailing Jenny's, 16 Horsepower, Bow Thayer, The James Gang, Little Axe, Slainte Mhath, an...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Message received loud and clear. Taking a moment to review the packet and organize the principals. Sounds like a rollicking good time ahead. I will check in again when I get stymied. I hope I will find others in a similar boat. We will be able to take comfort in our shared misery.

Re: Guess the Genre! NIAD 2015

A shipping crate (with a convenient parachute) containing Arizona Coyotes, falls out of a plane into the Indian jungle. The plot is a hero's journey as the alpha male and female have to form bonds with native jungle animals, offer protection, use their tricky minds, fight off the villain and make it...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

(How 'bout dem Cowboys.) Boo Dallas, Vikings all the way. The timing works out great for us desert folks, one notch further west from those stuck in Dallas. The PDF arrives around 5 PM, then the writing begins. The guttural responses coming from my desk area let the rest of the house know that creat...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 2: The Revenge

My section has been sent. Had to slap my hand to keep from messing with the story any more. Now it is out of my hands and being added to all your bits. What a wonderful feeling.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 2: The Revenge

This American is off to bed having finished my first draft. I shall see what the morning brings. Hope there is not too much to fix. No doubt that at least something will be turned in, on time this year to boot.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 2: The Revenge

Files received and looked through. Staring at blank page not worried at all that I have no clue how to begin. Same feeling as last year so I shall just begin and repair any damage on the read through.

Re: Novel-in-a-Day (NIAD)... Day

1) I liked the level of information given. My only thought is that the lead in and out might be more solidified for each section. Something like "the previous chapter ended with Scott standing with the key in the lock of his house. The Detective is hoping his wife is awake, afraid she is not,&q...
