Book design - refresh? Or stay consistent?

I seem to have mislaid both my Scrivener compile format settings file and my Photoshop template for creating the front covers. The compile settings aren't a problem, of course, because I upload a compile preferences file to this forum every year so with the magic of Scrivener I can simply download '...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

Well, now we're up to 20. Go out and tell your writing friends and spread the word! :)

Azurac - I'll leave you off the list for now then -- let me know when you can confirm!

Re: What's the plan Mr Bacon?

At first, I believed you were the Chosen Ones. The bearers of the golden Grails of NiaD. Now, I see that the Fender of the Pig, son of Fender of the Stratocaster, son of Fender of the Glowing Coals from the Hearth has tainted you with the Jaundiced Chalice of DaiN. You are marked with the ineradica...

Re: NiaD 8: Live and Let NiaD

I'm in! Ready to try for the first time. Hi there, hallda01! As a first timer, there are a few things we need to check first. I’ll send you a direct message later today when I’m at my laptop with detail, or you could shortcut the delay by sending me a message via https://novelinaday.com/contact ans...

Re: What's the plan Mr Bacon?

Answering that question would be in direct conflict with our official policy on the matter.

Re: Remember to Empty the Trash!

Katherine is one of the most helpful and least snarky people around here, so is it possible you read a little extra into the response that she hadn't put there? (She IS correct all the time, though.) Ditto to that! Yes, indeed. Come on, guys. Nobody is right all the t... Oh, wait. You’re talking ab...

Re: How to come up names to your characters?

I have a theory that certain rhythms and syllable combinations work better for different character types in a novel. This theory is not based on any in depth psychological studies, nor is it drawn from an understanding of cognitive behaviour. It’s just a hunch (albeit a hunch that I follow for all m...

Re: What's the plan Mr Bacon?

Well, I think it’s fair to say that October is looking somewhat unlikely. Sorry all for the delay. I got a new job (hooray?) a very short while ago and it made for pretty awkward NiaD timing. Am chatting to various stakeholders about alternate dates... January looks the most likely at the moment, bu...

Re: French adaptation of the NiaD

Ok. Sorry if I misunderstood. Certainly you’re able to run a collaborative writing event of your own. Of course my preference would be for people to drum up sufficient interest for the formal NiaD for us to run a simultaneous event in French (or Spanish, Australian, etc) rather than run “competing” ...

Re: French adaptation of the NiaD

Ok, wow. Firstly, it’s cool that you’re inspired to do this. A big part of my drive to do NiaD each year is to inspire people to go out and write their own stuff. I have to say, though, I’m a terrible control freak, and feel really protective of the NiaD concept and brand. As such, while I’m all for...
