KM,

Go here and click on any of the books. There you will find, among other things, the Scrivener project file for that book.

Thanks. I'd clicked another link to the books and could access them, but not the scriv. files.

If you're having trouble opening the downloaded project, note that they're .zip compressed. You have to right-click the file and "extract all" or whatever your OS/zip utility provides as an option. Zip files are read-only, but Scrivener must be able to write to certain files in the project when it opens.

Can I sign up in advance for the sixth Novel-in-a-Day event? Figure I might as well get it done in advance. :wink:

I am now going into genre-neutral lock down. Twenty hours and counting...

Hi,

Excited to start my first NiaD! Just want to ask, if I have questions about the material I am sent, can I ask clarifying questions or is that all I have to go on? What is the normal practice?

Just make it up!

Seriously though, Piggy was a big help to me on my first NIAD. Just remember that you can NOT post publicly. PM or Email to the pigmeister is what you want. Vic-K is unreliable. The rest of the planet is doing NiaD so they are out.

Have fun.

Thanks. I just read a previous comment that it is more about having fun being creative than worrying too much about continuity differences and making it "paint by numbers." Can't wait!

Looking forward to doing this tomorrow! It makes it even more unpredictable by the fact I'm going out to a gig tonight, and then out again tomorrow around 5pm to see an ice hockey match...so I have the hungover/still slightly-drunk hours of around 9-4 tomorrow to get it done...

I'm not worried though - it'd actually be worse if I was stuck in all weekend, bored and sleepy and not pressured by deadlines. I studied journalism so having most of the day to do something is easy...! :|

Just over two hours left, all! I'm so excited to get going on this!

Just hoping I manage my time differences properly. It's 3:20pm here!

:D

Yup. Rog needs time to do a light edit, if needed, and to assemble everything, and then sleep.
