DITTO!

I sincerely want to thank Mr. Pigfender for his stellar work, and for letting me take part (AGAIN!) in the best kept secret that is NiaD.

I found NaNoWriMo early on and watched it explode into a global phenomenon... so I'm confused:
On the one hand I'm inordinately happy that NiaD hasn't gone the same way, and is still the small, intimate and friendly event that it is.
On the other hand I'm kinda gobsmacked that NiaD hasn't gone viral, become a meme and the latest thing for the glitterati to do.
Thank heavens for small mercies!

NiaD is one of the highlights of the year. Long may it remain so! W00T! :D

Until next time!

Dear Friends,

I have prepared a web version of Auld Lang Syne, replete with all chapter versions. The site enables you to easily browse, compare, and choose between versions on a chapter-by-chapter basis -- so you can put together your own bespoke edition of this book.

http://gbrish.net/niadweb/2018

There are there similar choose-your-own-version of the earlier niad novels (for the years that had multiple editions).

Best,
gr

Thanks again, Pig!!

I feel so special with my nice shiny new forum badge :D

It was a real treat to be able to participate in this with everyone. I had an absolute blast and want to ensure Pig knows how wonderful this is so we can continue for years to come! Everyone raise your new NiaD cups for a cheer! "To next year's NiaD!"

Glass raised; "To many more years of NiaD!"

It is a blast to do, it's good for my writing, and should continue... especially if we can find ways to share the burden of overworked Pigfender.

By my calculations, there are 98,304 ways to read Auld Lang Syne.

So, when people give you that shocked look after you tell them you "wrote a novel yesterday", before they can recover say, "Well actually it was closer to a hundred thousand novels."
