Thanks PigFender!

I've never felt happier to have been stalked! (err...)

Done, done and done! :-)

Promises!Promises!Promises!

The best way to influence whether NiaD continues is to have lots and lots of people sign up (or not)!

I mean... some of us plan on these things for specific times of the year and when events are rescheduled it throws a bit of a kink in the path of participation. Not me mind you, but some of us. :P

No one does anything in January, surely?! A looming NiaD to cheer you on Blue Monday is surely what everyone wants!?

The operative word was "plan". Maybe I should bold it... There. But, as I said, I'm not kinked by the reschedule. Much to everyone chagrin I'm sure.

I'm one for whom the move to January has removed the angst about whether to put my head on the block again or not ... I've got too much to do in January to be able to sacrifice myself.

And no doubt once again I will experience regret that the genre will be one I'm happy with, as opposed to the genres of a couple of the ones that I have contributed to, genres which I've never read in my whole life, and am unlikely ever to read!

WTF!!???!??!? How can you possibly validate ANYTHING I type? Either there's something with your brain or an alien has taken over your account.

Me being right... Nopeity-nope-nope.

Ah, but which is which? Which is which?

I think what pigfender is trying to say, though he is too shy to just out with it, is that he would like us to pester him all year long about the next NIAD. :D

See now, Jan 26 is not only a weekend this year, but also a public holiday here in Oz, so a perfect time to lock oneself away for writing methinks! :-D

Say, is it okay if those of us who use Facebook share it to our friends? I've got some that might be interested, and at least one gaming guildmate who might enjoy the challenge!
