Morning all

I got very excited to see that my contribution made the cut - was there a cut? Did all submissions get in? - into the Orange version. I am keen to see how my chapter fits in with the others. Hopefully, it does!

Can anyone help me with adding the expresso cup?
I have tried to add both the image itself and the URL for it into my signature but it kinda didn't work.

Happy reading of whatever colour version you are in.

And it is definitely the best place to read all 1,633,640,400 distinct versions of the book!

Hey everyone! Just checking in now that I've caught up on a bit of sleep to say a massive thank you to everyone who took part. I was overwhelmed by the response!

As always, special thanks are due to Keith and the whole LL team for very kindly hosting us again and letting us clog up their forum for a bit -- and of course, for producing Scrivener which makes planning and producing even multi-version collaborative novels simple!

For anyone new to NiaD and the forum, I'd defintely recommend checking out the Scrivener project file used to produce the book, which contains all the info in the briefing packs which got sent to everyone, as well as the submissions themselves and a bunch of cover images. You can even download the compile settings used to produce the books. All that's available on the book page itself.

Wow, just finished reading the Blue version (I bet we all read 'our' version first!) and I think it held together with the fewest contradictions of any of the NIADs I've read. Kudos to all of us!

And endless gratitude to Pigfender for coming up with the idea for NIAD and leading it all these years. We may never win fame and glory (or a penny of royalties) but when the process is such fun, who cares?

Now I'm off to read the other versions of 'my' chapter. (Does anyone else do this?)

Chuckles.... Greetings from a fellow Blue, Beth! I also read other versions of "my" chapter. Haven't done so yet.

I do a Skype video chat with my 13-year-old grandson most days. On Saturday I showed him our brief and chatted to him about the NOVEL IN A DAY.
I suggested that whilst he is in 'lockdown' he could also write a novel, and we could check up each other's writing each day to see how things were progressing.
He has had a very hard year with being bullied at school and was seriously depressed. The past two days he has begun writing and drawing again. My daughter said he was even smiling and enthusiastic about things, something they haven't seen in months.
There is much power in the written word - not only for the one who reads.

Thanks, Piggy for letting me be part of the Novel in a Day.
