I wonder how many different iterations of "representatives of the Comptroller's office" did Mr. Cole meet over the course of the novel? :mrgreen:

Hope less than 66...

The dolphins are making good use of of the death ray. Mostly for uninvited guests (lion fish, tiger shrimp and the like) and to make it faster to serve 12 course meals (if you ever get invited to a dolphin dinner, show up hungry).

I hope they don't have a book called "To Serve Man". But if they do, I propose we go potluck!

Squeeeekikkikgrrrrsqueee (you may recall him from page 4 or so) has repeatedly stated that the current state of humans is such that the meat is too fatty or too lean, too often contaminated with "unnatural substances" and in many ways distasteful. "And to that end, we find that your kind is easy to manipulate into doing that hard work of catching fish, crabs and shrimp for us, making it much more advantageous to not eat you."

Squeeeekikkikgrrrrsqueee did continue with, "Now orcas on the other hand... they are NOT happy with the way humans have done things of late, and will likely hold that grudge for some time. I highly recommend you avoid them. And pass the flounder you caught this way please."

I'm tired but eager to read how it all comes together. This year I had difficulty because the characters in my brief were all competing to tell it from their point of view. The character descriptions really allowed me to visualize everyone and instantly have too many separate ideas about their stories. :shock: :D

As always, it was great fun. I appreciate all of the hard work that goes into this project and thank you for allowing me to play along.

Now I'm anxious to see whether Otis Johnson makes it to President with Angela Bennett his pick for VP and Tom Bennett his FLOTUS. Or maybe that's not the point of the story... or the genre... Never mind, I'll get my X badge and that's all that matters.

Thanks Rog for another enervating Saturday.

I still need to add last years cup to my signature. So now I can do them both at the same time. Once I find them.
At least I'm hoping my section was received.

Uf! Barely made it this year. Real-life stuff made it really hard! :shock:

I think I managed to send a little more than 1500 words. But I'd rather do that than poke a hole in this year's NiaD. :roll:

THERE IS A NEW BOOK IN THE LIBRARY!

viewtopic.php?f=51&t=28582


Huge thanks to everyone who took part in today's Novel in a Day. I had a blast talking to you all throughout the day. I hope you had awesome fun. Thanks, as always, to the lovely folks at LL for hosting us on their forum, and of course for producing Scrivener without which an event as completely ridiculous as Novel in a Day simply would not be imaginable!

As always, I'd love to hear your feedback! Comments on the event in this thread, and on the book in the book specific thread (which if you've not already found, can be hunted down in that library link, above).

And, of course, a final shout out to Vic and Montree - good friends, sorely missed.

Getting down to reading,!

One more newbie question: the colors - are they different only in who wrote or also some parts of the script were different?
