Hi, Kayden. Welcome back! I've added you to the list.

Luiciferis, I've sent you a message via the forum with the next steps!


Only 10 days to go until NiaD so we'll be closing for new participants soon!

Sorry!

Well, poop. I've never written in the sorry genre.
It's obviously historical, harking back to the days when an accident was an accident and apologies sufficed. No ambulance chasing litigiousness here, then.
I'm salivating at the opportunities afforded.
In the words of an odd friend: W00T!

Ooo yes. Maybe one of those sorrypunk novels — steam and clocks and transistors do not exist; instead advanced apologetic technology powers every aspect of people’s sorry lives.

Well, shucks you guys... you know every time you successfully guess the genre I have to go away and come up with something new?!

Anyway... less than a week to go until the big day! If you’ve not signed up yet — now’s the time!

Well, if you feel you must abandon the Sorry genre and turn this into haberdashery fiction, that'll suit just me fine.

Umm... no. Can't think of a genre that includes a hernia exam.

Typically, here I am wandering along late in the day!

I'd have loved to take part but have hesitated far too long - I'm lighting a play that opens on Saturday evening so was unsure until this week whether I'd have lots of last-minute stuff to fix for it on Saturday! In fact I don't think I will have but I couldn't have known that until last night.... All the best to those participating though, especially any for the first time. Have fun!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of Niad9’s participants, a happy fun-filled, intellectually challenging, Niad 9 day, full of demanding, but rewarding literary endeavour, and achievement.
Take care and enjoy!!
