Italics?

400 words in 4 hours of writing... at this rate I should be able to scrape past the word tally if I stay up for the next 11 hours until 7am.

NIAD has never been so torturous for me, but I've found a way to make it easier for everyone. In my chapter, I'm going to have all of the characters knocked unconscious by some kind of gas leak, and everyone's chapters from there on can be dream sequences for different characters.

If anyone has any names they need me to add to the verbatim of list of characters rendered unconscious and dream-ready, just send me a PM and I will slot them in.

If anyone finds a reference to a PAUL ROBINSON in their brief, that should read PAUL CAMBRIDGE. But don't worry too much as I can fix that with Find and Replace later if I need to!

No wonder my central character's Australian.

I'm blaming you for my word-block by the way, Blount. Your chapter last year set too high a standard, and I am wallowing in my inability to live up to it.

Which reminds me, are you setup for footnotes? Otherwise everyone is going to think my deliberate Australian-ism is just a typo :-)

I just don't want to make a boo boo about locations?

Ok,

The Daily Echo has nothing to do with the Southern Daily Echo based in Southampton.
I've not given anyone locations for the law firms, banks or news paper offices, other than to say that they are broadly within the financial district of London - the central square mile north of the river.

Hey roo chasers,

How would the main refer to herself colloquially?

Outline completed last night before beauty rest. Should be fairly quick to the first throwaway draft.

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

Listen you…. you don't want stupid rednecks asking dumb questions, set the thing in east-bejesus-nowhere SC.

Matt, glad to see you haven't lost your touch. admittedly the context was missing.

How would main refer to herself in the third person colloquially?
