P.S. I have now posted my web version of Butterfly Dawn, replete with all chapter versions. If you are new to it: the site enables you to easily browse, compare, and choose between versions on a chapter-by-chapter basis -- so you can put together your own bespoke edition of the book. More ways to enjoy the fruit of your labors!

I used that web address, with …4.png, but it's offering me a 2014 mug. Have I time travelled, or is 2019 a different number?

And what do I do to add the mug to myself when I've got the right one?

Ah, got it; this year's number is 9. And I suppose I add it as a signature, duh?

Nice interview with Pigfender here - good points about the fiction process: https://roundaboutfm.com/episode-109-ro ... -in-a-day/

Hey, Maelduin... you took part in NiaD7 too! You can use 7-9.png in your signature!

Yo piggy, your signature shows a distinct lack of cups of any kind. I’m pretty sure you should have a double stacked, rum stained, broken pencil filled mug for EVERY NiaD.

I had 4 mugs for about 30mins after NiaD4 but it didn’t feel right so I took it back down. I’m very proud to have written chapters in 3 events and pleased I’m able to declare it on every single forum post!

Dude! You wrote every chapter! The entire thing was oinked into existence via your hard work. You really should give yourself more credit. Can you at least make a chipped cup for yourself?

Don’t worry - if you know what the mugs are you probably know I’ve been involved! You might not know I’ve also taken part in 3! :D

Wait a bleedin' minute!
229,582,512 distinct versions of Butterfly Dawn? :shock:
So, maybe I'm rotten at maths, but really?
53 participants and 19 chapters equate to 229,582,512?!!!!!!!

Could someone please explain, because crooning politely to my phone's AI doesn't get me close to that. Doesn't get me anywhere, really.

Well, three first chapter, each of which spawns 3 second chapter versions which each have 3 third chapter versions. 3 book makes 9 books makes 27 books by third chapter. So on and so on. So that’s 3^19 for 1,162,261,467

Then you have too remember that a few have only 2 versions. That makes a mess of it and that’s where I quit.

Now, children, just do your homework assignment and don’t complain. I’m sure your teacher had a very good reason for assigning you those 229,582,512 novels. You can have your pudding when you’re finished with that.
