So there are still a handful of chapters outstanding. Given the slight delay in handing out the briefs, it's only fair that those who've had ridiculous issues today get the full benefit of the 24 hour period. The books will follow pretty quickly after then.

Hope you've all had a wonderful time today. Thanks for keeping me entertained.
There will be a separate post opened up for the books, and you can leave feedback on the book itself in there, but please leave any feedback on the event here in this thread - I'd love to read it and take on board a few more pieces of advice for when we do this next time.

I spent more time cutting the brief into research parts than anything else. Offer a scriv pack option for losers like me.

More work for you. So feel free to reject it. Again.

My only feedback, as I already said via email, is that I enjoyed it immensely once again, and really appreciate all the amazing effort you put into it, Mr Pigfender, and am loving watching it grow.

Thank you!

Pushing the hard stop a bit are you?

Wait. You're in. Shitshitshitshit. I sure hope there plenty of distance between us. Maybe a whole book would be enough.

Thanks for making this happen, Pigmund! As always, a reason to wake up at Oh Seven Hundred on a Saturday and stew miserably over not-enough-coffee until I finally feel too guilty over how late I am. The briefing was well done and the scenes were a lot of fun to write. I was also happy to discover that not one but two people in my chapter had suits of quality.


Never again, though, right? :D

Had to run out the clock -- down to the minute.

My chapter feels like more of a hack than last year, but there were several fits of culture jumping and high-profile location/organization navigating to be done.* Or maybe it was the two hour packet delay. :|

Novel-in-a-2Day anyone? But what am I saying? That would be almost sane. Nahh.

gratitude for the op,
gr

Thanks be the mental subdivision called 'PigFender'.

I enjoyed it once again. You truly are amazing and I'm in awe as to how you actually manage all this and continue to seek increased pain year on year - did you practice self harm as a child? Just curious.

Thanks Rog,

Lee

What are you going to do first after the books are made available?
a) Immediately turn to and read your own chapter. Twice.
b) Work out which book you're in and sit down and start reading it, like a book.
c) Immediately turn to and read the duplicate of your chapter by the other person. Twice.
d) Ignore those, head straight to the .scriv file, to read other people's briefs.

c), b), in that order for sure!
