TiaD?

Whoa... I think I just heard Piggy exploding from all the way over on this side of the planet.


I don't think I could cope with writing about triads so soon after last year's book on 1950s mafia.

To avoid any risk of over-described clothing after the complete lack of subtlety exhibited by you guys with the suit last year, I hear Piggy is setting this year's novel in a nudist colony.

This is a good warm up for the nano month in November, this is far more fun for anyone thinking of signing up, there is a real sense of achieving something as a group, all putting our individual style on a book, and if you look at the ones done already it seems to work really well, so join up lets get that trilogy going. :lol:

Erm Piggy are you okay, did I hear a huge grunt :?:

Hugs your brilliant organising this :D

Looks like the game is already afoot.

Can I participate? I'm new here but promise to deliver what's required! I can send a piece of 'Flash Fiction' if that will help me gain a seat at the table?

Many thanks

I really want to sign up! I participated in NaNoWriMo last year and am signed up for this year but love writing challenges! I am up for the challenge, but I just recieved this information today and was wondering if it is too late to join this year?

Oh go on then, can I join in too please?

I have a blog, though have rather neglected it while I've been posting entries on Prosebox and EWSentinel following the demise of Open Diary.

My blog is here: http://19516theelusivebaby.wordpress.com

If I'm accepted, could I please ask to not to be given any scenes of death and destruction to write? Thank you!

And I only have Word 2010 and not Scrivener, so hope that will be OK.
