No. Wondering why I agreed to take my one free-ish Saturday in a two-month run of stressful weekends and spend it stretching my boundaries.

Unless you count that as excited, in which case, sure!

Taquilla rubbed in wounds is less annoying than salt and lemon juice. But all three together and you and I would have a good time!

Hi there

Do you still have space available?

You can check out some of my stuff on Scribophile to check if you think I might be of an acceptable standard to participate.

Thank you!
Kim :-)

Piggy, can you please have this plot a bit more "real" this year? Say, set on a tropical island, natural springs flowing with rum, scotch, and brandy. The main characters should be believable this time... say a talking dolphin, a singing seagull, and Vic-k. You should be able to do something with that. Plus, I've already got my chapter done for that story.

I do have one issue I am watching my son do the iron man in Luxembourg on sunday travelling early tomorrow morning, I had forgot about that so I am keeping fingers crossed that I have internet long enough somewhere to download and to resend when done :oops:

Is it normal to feel nervous/terrified about this, in that 'oh my god, have I bitten off more than I can chew?' kinda way?
For years I waited for a Writing Angel to sprinkle her magic Confidence Dust on me. But she never came. That's when I realised I was going to have to find my own dust.

As vic-k said, only for normal people. Which is why he and I don't. Oh wait... I do. But vic-k doesn't. There maybe other reasons for that though.

Hey Kimkneen! Yes! Welcome to Novel in a Day (well, Novella in a Day this time)! I've sent you a private message on this forum with a couple of questions so I know where to send the briefing pack, etc.

Oh absolutely. That's exactly how I'm feeling right now!?!

Incidentally, if any of you are on Instagram, I *might* be doing a couple of "live stories" through the day, depending on stress levels and how good my hair looks. :P :D
