Rog: I'm running a bit late, and maybe a little longish. I just finished my first draft, so it looks like I'll be taking another 30 to 45 minutes to do some light editing and call it done. Sorry in advance if it's a bit rough.

Ok, done. More than 1500 in what I can only hope passes for English. I get why there's only one of these a year, it's exhausting.
Anyway, thank you, Jaysen and Montree_Wiles (sorry if I didn't get you name right), for pointing me to the clock before, I was really not able to look for it; and I suppose I'll fool myself into thinking it was actually fun, so I'll probable see you next year.

Just thinking for a minute. We all dribbled out a chapter. Piggy has to read them all. And this year there are two books. TWO BOOKS. With folks like KB and me writing two chapters each that's a LOT of reading. A LOT of BAD reading.

Poor piggy.

That's why I wonder that NIAD comes again each year! I'd be dead first time. Or you'll all be dead, I don't know. Kudos to Rog: that's a real tour de force he's set himself for!

ETA: never said, but my 2185 words have been sent and now, of course, I'm dreading they're not good enough.

Mornin all. What a rush. Piggy got my chapter and then I fell into a scrivener induced coma.

Not sure if the answer is still needed but for those pants... We know them as 'daks' or 'trackie daks'

I knew it was something like that. Oh well. Too late.

Well, that was much more exhausting than I anticipated.
I think next year, if I'm still around and able, I should do all my writing the during the night I get the brief and edit all the next morning. That probably would have been a much better plan. I didn't get to half of the notes I made last night for the scenes. Real life on Saturdays are distracting!

Done!
I'm not sure why why only 1,720 words took me that long.
I think next year I'm using my vacation days for this event. That way I can give it the attention it deserves. :twisted:

The phrase "off-shored," is the same as the AmEng, "out-sourced," right?

Yes. Current corp Lang uses off shore to hide the "out" aka loss, of jobs.

Notes is relative. I took a bunch because I planned to sleep before writing. Had I been on roo chasing time I'd have just vomited it all into scriv and cut away.

Not quite true. I would have cut the brief up into chunks to sort my stream of mind bile intimate something resembling piggy's plan.
