Re: Scrivener used by Rian Johnson to write Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Having worked on scripts that were never allowed to leave the studio’s premises, that were under armed guard at all times, and where all personal devices were prohibited to ensure there was a super-secure air-gap, I’m very surprised he was allowed to walk around with the MBA at all.

I missed the early NiaDs. Will you be re-running those at any point? There are no plans to at the moment, but if there is sufficient interest in repeating some of the earlier events then we'll consider it.

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Re: Revisit previous years events?

Why do we need to preface "aliens" with "space"? Seems redundant. To make it clear you're talking about definition 4 and not the others. alien.jpg Yes. And I promise to IGNORE all precedent as I insert pirates, dolphins and space aliens. Soooo tempted to just lock the thread at ...

Re: Revisit previous years events?

What do people think about this?
Would people want to 'catch-up' if we were to schedule a couple of the really early NiaDs as re-runs?

Yes, for anyone who is interested, the Scrivener project file (available on the book's library page ) contains all the chapter briefs that everyone received, and some Scapple maps used to plan the book...

If it's any consolation, I've read the correction you sent 15 times and can't see what's wrong with the line. You're fine!
