I thought I made it up on the spot for my suggestion of the 'Piggy awards' further up the thread. It was going to be my gift to you this year.

Several months ago. Weren't you paying attention?


But apparently everyone else got there first.

I guess I will have to try harder.

There was a reference to a frog, a pink and white dress, and outer space. But that could have just been too much pizza and a dream...

Could've been. Especially if there were anchovies on the pizza.

First reference to you as such in MY posting is here. Fourth of April 2012. You may be suffering from "old man memory disease". That or you are taking the right approach to my posts… ignoring them.

:P

Ah, back in the good old days when I was actually helpful on the forum. :D

~~~

Don't forget: this year we are making multiple copies of the book (we already have more than the normal 25 participants), so by all means invite your writing pals to take part!

~~~

Hmmm... the FAQs post seems to have done the trick this year. Everyone knows *exactly* what they're letting themselves in for and have *no questions* at all.

Cool.

I'm in, but it was a close thing. Until I untangled the time difference, it appeared to be a choice between NiaD and going to this: http://thebeggarscarnivale.com/

Unfortunately for the rest of the literary community, the timing worked out. :|
Often wrong, rarely in doubt.
Time for a change... I'm now rdale; same dog-avatar, same dog... channel?

I've been trying to help. Stop rejecting my "other-thread-suggestions" and I can guarantee one chapter turned in early!

This year I took two days of time off (back to back and cheek to cheek) so that I stand a chance of starting a few hours earlier than last year and thus will be able to complete within that many fewer hours of the deadline. So, I'm not saying I won't be late, I'll just be less late than previous years. 8)

MR Piggy,

HOw do you plan to address the 0.67 book that will not be written should the participants list not continue to extend?

Right - another name added to the list. That means we have 34 participants (or 1.42 books) so far with about 14 days and 15 hours to go!

14 more people to make two completely different books or, if we're feeling ambitious, 38 more to have three! Go heckle your writing groups...! :D
