N'ah this year I intend to stay happy and positive through the whole thing!

I'm getting too old for that.
Well, that didn't last long.

So once again I have to say — as they famously do on “Dragon’s Den” — "I’m out!
Sorry to miss you again, X, but I'm happy that it's because you're doing fun stuff instead of because you've hacked parts of your body off this year! Hopefully all digits are working again?!

Well, there's not toooooo long to wait this year! Just a few minutes shy of 31 days as I type this. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
Please count me in. What an interesting idea to co-writing a novel within a day. I'm so excited!

It did turn out great, didn't it!? Tell your friends!
(or just write nice things on the Made Man thread)

Welcome aboard. It's a lot of fun. I'm told.
(wow, that positive thinking thing really wore off quick this year!
If genuine warmth and sheer enthusiasm, alone, as exhibited within this thread, could generate a novel, then this year's NIAD, will surely be a Bestseller!!
Good luck to you all, and here's wishing you oodles of fun and enjoyment.
Yup, record first day turn out, I think?

Don't make promises you KNOW you can't keep!

Yes you are!

That will not be necessary...
You may have noticed a couple of things that are different this year!
1) We have a shiny new home here in our own forum and away from the now locked Announcements forum. This is great because it means we actually have space to do things like have FAQs posts, and anything else. It also means I have MOD power, which as far as I can tell has no particular benefits except it means that I can edit Jaysen's posts to make it look like I win every single argument.
2) I've not actually registered myself this year. I haven't forgotten. I'm not planning on contributing a chapter this year, which frees me up to answer questions, start collating and compiling things earlier, and generally be watchful of SHENANIGANS (Matt).
3) I've not posted a limit on the number of attendees...
This isn't because we're writing an enormous 60 chapter epic this year. If demand is sufficient, instead of turning people away as we have in previous years, we'll produce more than one version of the book!
Right. I'm off to try and think of a story. Seeya all tomorrow!
