It’s both okay and strongly encouraged! :D

Ah, but which is which? Which is which?

I think what pigfender is trying to say, though he is too shy to just out with it, is that he would like us to pester him all year long about the next NIAD. :D


this sounds like an excellent plan. I feel like everytime I jump in and do something that's the last time the something is done. ABNA, Remember that? I broke it. :( Don't leave me thinking I broke NiaD, Pigfender. :/ :D

I feel similarly! My first NiaD and it's potentially the last one? :(

Depending on what your definition of "lots and lots" is, there seems to be a sufficiently large number of people signed up... When can we know whether NiaD is saved for years to come?

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

Now now, young Jaysen. We all know that young grr grrr, is a obfuscating obscurantist, just like cat lunk, but you can't blame him for everything ... so, behave y'self!
Pangur's watching you! :evil:

I'd like to sign up too. I haven't done it before - but I've completed the contact form and supplied links to material. Let me know if that's Ok or whether you want more! I have cleared the 26th of any other activities already...

A good harvest. Now a wren is seen nesting in midwinter. Very strong omens. Yes. I see many NIADs in your future.

MissBlue, drbruce, and gothcabbage, welcome to Novel in a Day! I've added you to the list!
(drbruce -- I still have a couple of questions before the event itself and have sent you a private message through this forum, although I don't need a writing sample as I've checked out your writing on Scribophile).

That's 40 people taking part this year, and we are now LOCKED for new participants*.

* - if you've taken part previously I might make an exception for a day or so.
