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

Hey everyone! Just checking in now that I've caught up on a bit of sleep to say a massive thank you to everyone who took part. I was overwhelmed by the response! As always, special thanks are due to Keith and the whole LL team for very kindly hosting us again and letting us clog up their forum for a...

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

HIYA EVERYONE! Wow! Putting chapters together into 7 different books takes a looooong time! Sorry for the delay in getting the books up. We had huge numbers take part this time, and, for some reason significantly more people submitted at or near the deadline this year rather than spread our through ...

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

Well, there you go!

Unrelated point - what mild expletive might an American use instead of "bugger" or "bollocks"? I want something just slightly North of "damn",

Thanks in advance!

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

Another question...Would guns work? I know anything that needs power wouldn't, like electricity or batteries and stuff, but I have no idea how guns work, so I have no idea if they would in this scenario. Oh, yes. They'd work. Making more guns or ammo without electricity would be hard, but, yeah a h...

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

Okay, I'm just getting started (late, I know, but it's taken me this long to figure out how I want to approach my chapter), and I need to know what day of the week this is. Since this takes place on August 29, and I've discovered schools start in DC on the last Monday in August, I need to know if t...

By the way -- the first THREE chapters are in!
The first one actually arrived five hours ago, but I didn't want to scare the rest of you.

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 This is...
