This year's genre was ... my spouse's favorite. One of these days, I swear the story will be about something I know about (and will have no excuse for getting badly wrong). Some day.


There can’t be that many genres left! :D

My chapter is as done as it will ever be. Submitted to the master monkey, ready for assembly. I am looking forward to the last of the five stages of NIAID, a little nap.

I was really concerned when I started this one that I would struggle to find things to say in my chapter. There's quite a lot of specifc detail I wanted to get halfway right, with the danger that it overtakes the business of telling an interesting story! But as before I found that eventually I can sit down and spew out words, and a reasonably complete first draft has been done. Now I've "just" got to edit it. I have a little unnecessary (for the main plot) substory for colour that I have to decide whether I have time to include...

Done and submitted. I have no idea why I struggled with this one. I should know a little bit more about this from all the crime shows I watch, but sadly, all that knowledge escaped me when I stared at the blank white page (or rather cream since I wrote it on my iPad). The urge to have one of my characters scream, “you can’t handle the truth” was there, but I decided against it after mulling it over. :D

I found this one difficult spent lot of time trying to get head around some kind of outline knowledge to give me a fighting chance of making sense :(

That said, thank you for the amount of background preliminary research you've provided this year on various matters that might otherwise be difficult to scare up in time!

I'm pretty sure none of us knows very much about everything. But most of us know a lot about a little. We just need to get the son of baconator to broaden his base of knowledge.

Newbie here. That was fun. Can't wait to see how they all fit together! And if we managed to make contract law fun at all.
