What's the genre this year? A gender-bending cowboy zombie fantasy set in space?

That's Thanksgiving weekend? It's a good thing I only celebrate with my parents on Sunday and Monday. :)

I'm going to stick my head on the block again and say I'd like to be in. It's been a number of years during which other things in life have got in the way. I just hope it's a genre less daunting than the last two; I know nothing about piratical cyber-dolphins … or about anything much, really!

I'd love to do this one more time.

Booking off the time, so I don't get called in at the last minute, like the last time and marking it on my calendar so I don't get the days mixed up like the ...other..last time.

I loved doing it and want to redeem myself for the times I fornicated the canine, so to speak...

Okay, wow! A load of you have signed up VERY QUICKLY! Sorry it's taken me a little while to acknowledge!!! :D

I totally agree! The genres that have stretched me the most outside my normal reading / writing have definitely taught me the most about my reading / writing.

Camy wrote:Ooooooo! Yes yes yes yes yes, please! :D Thank you, Roger. The Interstellar pirate dolphin genre is underutilised.
ADDED! I don't know if Interstellar pirate dolphin is underutilised as such. I think Jaysen writes 5 or 6 novellas in that vein every year...?

Done! The trick is to milk as much enjoyment / distraction in the run up to the event as you can, by talking ceaselessly about it on social media and encouraging all your friends, casual acquaintances, and random strangers you pass on the street to join in.

Sorry you can't join us. Does sound delicious, though!

You do know that I only tell people what to write for one day a year? The other days they're free to write whatever stories and genres they like?

A couple of NiaDs ago you almost got a story with the working title "Robots vs Zombies", but I scrapped it about a week before the day and came up with something completely different instead. One day I hope to reuse that plot as maybe a webcomic or something.

YES! And, yes. The NiaD Award Mugs are highly prized and should be proudly displayed on all electronic media, from your twitter profile to your work email autosig. (Ok, maybe not your work email autosig).
