Greetings to you all! I uploaded both e-books and I'm reading them side by side without reading the briefs previously. I'm around chapter 5 so far.

It has turned out very interesting to watch how different authors approach the same situation, and get an insight about what those briefs really said.

Pigfender. For 2015, NIAD needs a Wiki entry. And yes, include the bit about your love of strong coffee.

Is there a conversion tool for Scrivener? I'd love to convert the project file into something I can open.

Thanks all,
Pigmund :D

Funny that. Especially considering that we all just wrote a book based on your ideas.

Think about it.

Sadly I like my tea and coffee to be of distinctly average strength, all though I do drink an AWFUL lot of it.

I have no idea *why* the scrivener file wouldn't open on Windows, but for some reason it wouldn't. I've uploaded a new version (this one I have checked on a Windows machine), so you should be good to go!

Yes, NIAD needs a Wiki entry next year. :) Or do you think it's not notable enough? Surely once it reaches its fifth annual with multiple editions at the fourth it is? :roll:

I'm afraid we wouldn't meet the notability requirements
the topic of an article must have already been the subject of publication in reliable sources, such as books published by major publishing houses, newspapers, magazines, peer-reviewed scholarly journals and websites that meet the same requirements as reputable print-based sources

Mr. Pigfender. Got that line about strong tea from my brief. You know the part about, '... if after I die my entry on Wikipedia includes the line his love of strong tea was legendary I will consider my life well lived." But then that won't be the only thing I misread in my brief.

Yep, should be tea and not coffee.

Don't get me wrong, my love of tea is legendary... probably 15+ cups a day.

You're a good man Mr. Pigfender. Caffeinated, but a good man.

Brilliant fun, awesome day. Would buy from again A+++

Thanks to Pigfender for a fantastic new writing experience. I am looking forward to reading both the books and examining the scriv file for insights.

Stay well, have fun and keep your goggles on.

Wonderful time! Really did enjoy the process & loved seeing the insides of how scrivener can be so productive for a writer.

Lots of things this newb learned from this experience:

Even though I tried to be vague & not assign too many past feelings & thoughts, I need to be even more careful/open to assigning motives to characters since obviously I don't know how it ends. :D

As others have said, I need to prepare to have more of my hours completely devoted to this project. No distractions. It's only one day.
So that...
I can write, edit, rewrite, leave it alone, get another's opinion, rewrite, edit & submit. And maybe get to edit again.

At any rate, this project showed how when the skeleton is in place, the actual writing part can be confined to a day for a chapter. I know, some were much longer than others, but seeing this in action made novel writing attainable-at least in my estimation.

Loved every minute. Thanks for letting me join in!
