Yay, welcome back homeport!

Hey Jacqueline, yeah this is a pretty good forum for getting support. The Tech Support areas are populated by some of the most friendly and helpful people I've met on the internet!

So, the plot for the event on the 17th is all worked out now and nicely divided into 12 chapters. I just need to power through and get all the briefing packs written up!

11 days to go - let's see how many more books worth of people we can sign up to take part!

Okay... I'm a little scared, but I'm thinking I might be up for doing this!

But as per the FAQ, and just so's you can vet me (and please reject me if I'm too rubbish!) here's a link to the Flash Fiction section of my blog: http://wcprawncrackers.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/ I picked this one at random, but there are other pieces on that site if this on its own is too short a piece to gain an impression of whether I'm up to it.

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.

Hey Maerahn. Thanks for the read! Welcome to Novel in a Day! :D

I'll send you a private message later today with some more details!

Wow, thank you Vic! I'm glad you liked it. I'm kind of nervous about the time constraint, but I have written to deadlines before, so I'm sure if I get my butt in gear (and claim a day off Housewife and Mum Duties) I can pull through. :D

OK, include me in.
I'm actually feeling hopeful this week, for the first time since November

I would not miss it for the world. Wait for the whole world I would miss it, but I would not be proud of my weakness.

Wolf, RonjoI, evergreen, welcome back! I've also somewhat optimistically added my own name to the list for the first time since 2013. Probably take it off again when reality hits home! :D

I'm going to keep the sign up sheet a little bit longer - probably call it to a close THURSDAY 15th at 12pm UK time for sign up, and FRIDAY 16th at 5pm UK time to get through all the sample checking / emails / info hoops in order to make the list.

Jaysen, old buddy, sorry I haven't acknowledged your post, I've only just noticed It.
I'd be in like a shot if it wasn't for my already well documented (here and elsewhere), Zombieisticisation, :?
I daren't. Seriously, it prevents a whole raft of communal/participatory endeavours.
But! Thanks for the invite. It goes without saying, that I wish all of the crew that do take part, good luck and tons of the very best of fun :D
Take care, y'all :wink:

I shall have a tumbler on the desk with your name on it. Participation as a voice in my head should count ;)

Well shoot. I can't resist any longer, and it turns out I *do* have some writing samples lying around that aren't completely shameful. Will send them your way through PM.

Unfortunately I don't (and can't on my Chromebook, until I decide to go to the trouble of a dualOS) use scrivener, but it looks like that's just my loss. :)

Welcome to the forum, and welcome to NiaD, hjordisa!

Scrivener is definitely worth checking out if you do go dualOS or get a new computer at some point... I wouldn't plan a multiple version global collaborative writing event to write a Novel in a Day with anything else! ;)
