Dang you Piggy! This is not going to a fun one. You always make me regret signing up for this nightmare of a day.

In other words... pass the rum. Let's get to work!

This one has me thinking. Which explains the smell of burning toast.

What happened to the smell of bacon?

Is there a preference for using first or last names?

That's your call. It's your chapter. Use your voice.

I tend to use the method that best fits the character speaking. But you don't know how anyone else has built that character. That's the fun.

Erm, Uhh, nothing else to do but roll up my sleeves and start writing. Erm maybe I will read a few more forum posts, that usually does the trick.

1079 in... And I'm not past the opening. I sure as heck hope the rest of y'all write something to make up for the mess I'm making of this chapter.

No deal. I'm barely 200 hundred in. Of course, I'm writing about a writer writing, so that kind of Inception-level meta is enough to drive a man to drink.

Speaking of which… *sips whiskey*.

Seriously, what a long week I've had. I may just turn in early and start fresh, now that I've scratched the surface a bit. Good luck, Mr. J, and everyone else too!

Okay, the questions seem to have stopped for a while so I’m going to go grab a few hours sleep. See you again soon!

I have the benefit of being in a comfortable time zone at this hour but my brain seems to be signalling that it requires a break already.

Mine seems to have broken already, but yes, a break to clean up the beer bottles and put on a pot of tea is an excellent idea! :lol:

WOO WHO!!! I'm the first to be a jerk and say:

DONEish

One more proof read and off to piggy.

As terrible as I thought this would be, it wasn't so bad. Granted I pulled a KB and entered the competition for the most black pixels used. I do notice a trend in my NiaD chapters. I'm sure Vic-k would say something like
