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

After all the work Roberta has put into seducing her way to the top, I just hope she's not killed off by some spoilsport in a later chapter. Who is Roberta? Did she work in security at the White House? Was she involved in an Apocalypse? I can hardly wait to find out what was really going on! Gettin...

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

Finishing up my final brief and will send soon. Just waiting for my heart to settle since I got quite the scare. Been doing research on the White House security systems, looking for floor plans, trying to see if there’s anything that might help when I got a loud knock on the front door, followed by...

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

Btw I’m also doing Campnanowrimo, but I shall add this word count to my total. :o Too right! I wonder how many of us are doing Campnanowrimo as well? I find Write A Novel In A Day cures my procrastination while also causing insomnia and a nervous breakdown! :D Just joking. But I was up most of the ...

Hi Rog/Pigfender,

I finished it and have emailed it to you.

This was a challenge.

Phew!

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

Hi Pigfender,

Thanks for the email and your advice here.

Much appreciated!

I guess the point of this exercise is to get us out of our comfort zone.

It’s certainly doing that!

Perhaps the next NIAD can be a Fantasy genre and we can invent our own world?
Back to the research and writing... :D

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

Hi everyone, I’m stuck! I thought we were going to be writing The Road or The Hunger Games. Instead, I’ve got to research what happens in the White House during some kind of nuclear attack. I mean I know very little about American politics, and nothing about the geography of the White House. I have ...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Hi @Pigfender, I sent you my chapter about 5 minutes ago. Sorry it was a little bit late, but there were some French spellings I wanted to check. I hope it’s okay as I sent you a rtf file and I wrote it all in Scrivener, except for the rough draft which I did longhand. I’m looking forward to reading...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Well, I’ve finished writing it! It’s 2214 words which is not bad, considering I had complete Writer’s Block when I started. I wasn’t supposed to know the creepy man was a vampire, but luckily I guessed and @Pigfender confirmed it. But I’ve been very good, and haven’t mentioned the word ‘Vampire’ any...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 9

Hi everyone! When I first read my brief from Mr Piggy, I experienced a severe case of Writer's Block. When this happens, I usually muddle through, but this time I emailed him a few questions for clarification,and his answers have made me feel SO much better -especially since I correctly guessed the ...
