They're just written by different people. So if, for example, you wrote chapter 10 in book Yellow, the people who wrote Chapter 10 in the other books will have done so with exactly the same brief as you!

Humongous thanks Piggy. I opened up a new world that I daren't venture before. I was apprehensive of the topic at first since law isn’t my strong suit, but a bit of research, a random documentary on cyber crime in high places and a nap helped.

And waiting for gr to wave his bespoke NiaD magic wand.

Hey! I'm not seeing my chapter in the finished stories. I sent it out about an hour before the deadline. Did it not arrive? I didn't get any bounced notifications or anything. I'm kind of bummed since I worked on it for hours today. I even had a power outage and was afraid I wouldn't be able to send it, but I was excited when the power came back on just in time.

I know there's nothing that can be done about it now, but I'm sad it didn't make it in.

That's my favorite thing about this - finding out what other people did with same brief.

It's only on re-reading the final version that I realized a) typos, and b) I have three different characters with very similar names that aren't typos. Oops.

:shock: I'm so sorry to hear that Tanya. Usually if Rog has received your work, he sends an acknowledgement...

Okay, now where do I go to read the Review-in-a-Day (NIADRIAD)? You know, where reviewers from all over the world -- each of whom reviews every version of but a single chapter -- collectively review a whole NIAD novel in a day?

Have you checked your chapter in each book in case name is down wrong maybe?

The poor thing probably got lost in the interwebs somewhere. That's the kind of day I was having yesterday. While I was working on my chapter, first my keyboard went nuts and then died (luckily, I had a spare, but it took over a half an hour to figure out why my computer was doing random things without me pressing anything) and I had a power outage that lasted for an hour. I guess the universe was angry at me for some reason. I probably should have checked at the deadline when I hadn't heard from him.

Major sympathy, that's such a pain in the ass, for the internet demons to snatch away your chapter in mid-flight. You absolutely certain? Have you searched all four PDFs for a phrase from your chapter?

I wonder would it be too great a technical challenge to do a Graphic Novel In A Day some year.

Nope. Not there. Technology is great when it works...but sucks when it doesn't. LOL Ah, well, there's always next time.
