Am out in California. Has it started yet? Will you be sending information for each of our chapters to our email address or somewhere on the lit&latte site? Good luck everyone!

am hoping to get mine in email but whatever works is ok. I was wondering will we be told what tense we are writing this in, first person, third?

You'll get instructions and all the info via e-mail from what I understand. There isn't anywhere on our site except for this thread here, so you can subscribe to this thread to get notification of posts made to it as well.

I've not sent things out. I'm having technical problems so I'm going to have to re-extract info and mail them one-by one. If you are in the US and waiting I'll prioritise you so let me know on this forum.
(I guess that's likely to include padaro, homeport, RDG, Ioa, Brian B... ?)
They will go out either by PM or email depending on what you requested by email.


"style guide" is essentially third person. You can dip into anyone's perspective although usual rules of good taste apply about mixing it up in a single chapter. Also under no circumstance should you dip into MICHAEL's perspective. HE can tell people what he is thinking, but the narrator can't!

Other than that, let's have "double quotes" for speech!

G'day,
Wouldn't mind getting on the early list too, if possible.

I am in Australia here and it is 10:30am, so I have about 12 useful hours I can work with from now, and my brain switches into coding mode late at night.

No huge rush, just wouldn't want it to be another hour or more.

Matt

I don't need mine early.

I'll have to start (or really get going on it) in about 12-13 hours from now, which will be my Saturday morning, due to commitments this evening. I might get some writing done before I go to bed tonight (roughly 5 hours from the time of this posting). Good luck everyone. Can't wait to see the final product!

Apologies to anyone tuning in late - Technical problems (lost files!) means I'm having to manually re-extract everyones sections again and send individually. Some of you should have these already now. If you are up and hoping to be writing right now - LET ME KNOW. If you are asleep, it will be waiting for you when you get up.

Also - LOCATION SHEETS will follow last of all.
This should probably only be a big deal for anyone writing something at "the House.
Let me know if you need the floorplan and general description early!

I'd like to get mine early if it's not too much trouble. I'm in the US, and would like to be able to sleep on it. Thanks.

Not to nag or anything, but it's an hour and a half after midnight Cornwall time here, and I haven't yet received my brief. :) I was hoping I would receive it before going to bed so I could ponder on it, seeing as it's a Saturday and I have limited time in the beloved office tomorrow. Man, this feels great, being the one repairing problems rather than the one fixing them!

Hey Keith, you should have yours now - I'm keeping an eye on anyone browsing the forum and giving them an automatic boost on the priority order.
