Aw crap, I'm in.

After my miserable fail last year, I said I wasn't gonna do it. I swore I wasn't gonna do it. But I'm gonna do it. Because if Jaysen can destroy a chapter, I am certainly not gonna not destroy a chapter too.

This sounds PERFECT! I would love to participate! Just let me know what I need to do (besides posting in this thread). I'm new to this whole scene, but I would really love to be included this year. :o

Hi Fraygirl24, I've sent you a direct message about next steps. Welcome to the forum!

gr, nice to see some authorial self-doubt creeping in there. Good proper writers' neurosis! the signature made me laugh too, even if you are being unjustifiably harsh on yourself.

Jaysen, calm down; you'll hurt yourself.

Only if you keep it a secret.

1. Not talented enough to participate. :(

2. Not well enough to commit. :cry:

Both the above apply to me, of course. (In case anyone should read the 1 & 2 in a way that wasn't intended.)

As Vic said in another thread...

In the past, Uncle Vic has asked for a chapter, already assigned to another, to play with in his own time, for his own amusement. I'm fairly sure, pressure of running Niad, permitting ( and it is a lot of pressure), Piggy would send you the bumph for a chapter. You won' be submitting it, but if you don't read the finished Niad15 until you've completed yours, you'll see how your effort would have fitted in. See what you come up with. Ask him … he can only say grunt grunt! He can't bite y'.


More than happy to oblige! But, having read some of your stuff, I'd dispute the whole not talented enough part anyway.

That's a new record for being moved to the annoy thread! I'll keep it over there for those that want to play. On a more serious note...

If folks do want to collaborate on a single chapter or have a brief to work in parallel with no commitment to Mr P, i will volunteer to manage/support that effort for ONE book/chapter that is assigned to me by the fearful leader. While I have only completed one NiaD I have confidence that I can provide a full committed chapter for Mr P solo but would be more than happy to coordinate a colab version. Should there be interest in this I will make sure you have Mr P support to make it successful for everyone.

PM me if interested.
