I'm very sorry to announce that we're not going to be running a Novel-in-a-Day event this October. Real life has sadly done what real life occasionally does, and put more things on my plate than I'm able to do and still organise a NiaD of the standard you deserve.
If there is sufficient interest, we'll look to re-instigate the event in the New Year -- possibly with a January event. In the meantime, you can keep up to speed with NiaD news and developments by subscribing to notifications from this sub-forum, and if you're on social media by following twitter.com/novelinaday or instagram.com/novelinaday.
Thanks to those who've been patiently waiting for this year's event. I'm really glad you've enjoyed taking part in previous years, and hope we get to write a book together again soon.

Here's me thinking about us knocking out a short story. and looking to: Chekhov; Poe; Kafka; Woolf; Hemingway; Wilde; Eliot; Twain; Tolstoy; Faulkner; Melville; Christie; Atwood and Joyce, etc., etc., for inspiration, and there's you lowering the standard to your usual sewer level. The kind of filth that gets yosimiti up on his high horse! tch!tch!

Is there a "veteran" of this event who might feel ready to give it a whirl?
Or could the overall duties be split up ....
It'd be a shame for a year to go by without a NiaD being produced. The gap in the icon row of all these folks' sigs would just be so unsightly!

Fallow system and tillage techniques
Dryland farming is made possible mainly by the fallow system of farming, a practice dating from ancient times. Basically, the term fallow refers to land that is plowed and tilled but left unseeded during a growing season. The practice of alternating wheat and fallow assumes that by clean cultivation the moisture received during the fallow period is stored for use during the crop season. Available soil nitrogen increases and weeds are controlled during the fallow period. One risk lies in the exposure of soil while fallow, leaving it susceptible to wind and water erosion. Modern power machinery has tended to reduce this risk.
