Why are you so stubborn about that?


Well, as per the FAQs...
Can you tell me the genre in advance?

Oh all right then, Piggly, since you ask me so nicely ... count me in too, please!

Whatever you give me, I shall work in a cat, an orange and a piece of string again, because they're my trademark (whisper ... I really include them in case they're the only interesting bits I can come up with, but don't tell anybody) :wink:

I... Err... ok. Your secret is safe. I always try and work the phrase Reacher said nothing into everything. No, wait... that's Lee Child. What's my thing again?

Welcome back for another year!

You like to outline novels and post them to a forum in advance of the deadlines.

Purchase booze, harass Piggy, and determine what your chapter will cover not matter what Piggy sends you.

Or wait and Piggy will contact you. Most choose this option, but the first one ... that's fun.
