I’m up for it. I love NiaD, and think at least a couple of the chapters I’ve submitted over the years have been quite good, but I have only a basic idea of what I’m doing, and probably don’t know what I’m not doing. You’re welcome to use any of my chapters from any of the NiaDs as the subject of, or to illustrate, your critical notes**.

Regardless of whether or not my chapter(s) are mentioned, I’m genuinely curious in what you’ve noticed. But probably not in this forum. Maybe ina forum marked “There be Dragons” (or maybe something a little more modern). I’m not sure how I might have responded after (let alone before) my first NiaD, so let’s make sure people are looking for your comments.

Apologies, only just properly noticed this. If the toes you're worrying about are mine, then don't - please go ahead. Any well intentioned feedback is helpful to (a) improve da skillz and/or (b) develop a thick skin.

I'd love (maybe 'quite like' would be better) to have my chapters pulled apart.
I might weep, but there's no growth without tears.*

I have something written up that covers a bit over half the book, and have notes on a portion of the remainder. I am figuring to put something together to share after we are all finished happily crowing about NIAD 2019!*

* And maybe this year, when I sit down to read the new book, I will think to jot down a few notes after each chapter the first time through — which I did not do last time which is why it is taking me so long to get something together (well, that and work) — so this time maybe I could just put together a Review-in-a-Day (RIAD), haha.

Now you’re in trouble: annual RIAD, scheduled one day after NIAD...

I am looking forward to seeing what you’ve written.
