Well, there is a special sandboxed area in here marked 'numpty dumpty'. Could that be it? Let's see, it seems this chapter is to be told in 1st or deep 3rd person from the point of no view (POnV) of a certain unidentified character during a period of uninterrupted and dreamless sleep. That's all it says. But I guess that says it all.

Sounds like an impotent narrator, t' me.

How could I let another year go by without making piggy stay up until five in the morning waiting for me to finish another poorly edited chapter? I'm in!

AmberV, yes, my personal suffering is one of the hidden benefits of the event for many. :? :D

Apologies, nom. Somehow in the confusion with the "Where Jaysen tests the patience of Mr Piggy " thread, I missed your message.

Am grateful for it. Very.

Hey Siren, yes! I've added you to the list. :D

That brings our tally to 25 people which seems like a nice point to look at some stats*:
- 3 of you are doing NiaD for the first time (welcome!)
- Over half of you will have done at least three NiaDs by 18th October
- A quarter of you will have done ALL FIVE NiaDs!

As well as being a nice round number, it also pushes us over the 24 chapters mark into our second book! Wonder how many versions we'll have this year?

* - because stats always make things FUN.

I was pushing the limits of public acceptability as it was, and some... err... mental images are better left unexamined (so to speak).

You are most welcome and I'm glad to know I didn't offend too much. I trust that you can respond with grace, courage and conviction to whatever ails you.









P.S. Keep writing!

Hmmm... ¼ of 25 is 6¼ . Who's the ¼? Is this a commentary on personality, writing ability, or stature?
You're right, stats are fun!

It's using the Internationally Accepted Protocol[citation needed] for degrees of accuracy and rounding in stated proportions.

Look, it was bang on 25.00000000% when I worked it out, but then DMJ signed up. :)
