I think I shall give NiaD a pass this year. It's a little too close to the start of NaNoWriMo, and I will be lining up background research for that, and essentially setting up all the stuff that goes into the briefs for all the chapters of NiaD. And I shall be doing it for something I want to write, a story that engages me, big-time. Sure, one chapter isn't much to write, but it's likely to be too big a jump for me. in terms of my mental state. Perhaps I will be expecting to walk past uniformed thugs as my characters return to 70 Wilhelmstraße in Berlin. Maybe a flying boat has an endless line of thunder-heads in view, and not enough fuel in the tanks to turn back. Or maybe a European cavalry officer, his country disintegrated by the aftermath of war, rides into a Colorado mining town to face down a white-hooded crowd with one of the new-fangled European guns that shoots more than the expected six times.

Things are going to happen, and I don't want to chance the distraction.

To those worried about qualifications or improvement from last year... consider this...

HE LETS ME DO IT!!!

He's either touched in the head or very willing to let everyone participate. I prefer the former, but I think reality is the latter.

I keep sending him fish heads, opossum tails and pig jowels, but they keep coming back as "delivery refused"! Not sure who's paying him. Must be Vic-K

OK, I'm in. I did this a few years ago, and apparently, have forgotten the pain sufficiently to hit it again.

Hi @pigfender,

The Facebook group is called Scrivener Users. It's a closed group but I expect they'd let you join. :wink:

The members are all obsessed with Scrivener and how to use it.

I think I'll be able to write the chapter using Scrivener iOS on my phone and email it from there. Last June, I opened your attachment with the details using an android tablet, but I've just tried using my phone to open it, and it works!

If there's a problem nearer the time, I'll let you know.

I'm in, I think. Unless my work life/whiskey intake gets thrown out of balance again.

:twisted:

But, I was planning on changing my name to "The Saint", and fetching whiskey!

Calling you "the saint" is like calling Vic-K an "innocent bystander".

But the fetching of whiskey will be supported.

After all this time, after all these memories, how could I possibly miss another adventure?

Count me in!
