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'.

If you gentlemen (and I use the term loosely with Mr K in the group), wish, we can all work on mine! I'll commit to Piggy that I'll do a real chapter but then forward it to you. That will reduce the need for extra effort on the part of the fearful leader.

You should split your chapter assignment into several segments and farm them out. Call it Chapter-in-an-hour (CIAH). And thereby hangs a pig tale.

Piggy won't allow teams yet. I've tried again and again. But he is sitting over there with his fingers in his ears going "nah nah nah"... see... right there...

Actually, as it says in the FAQS, I'm more than happy for people to collaborate and take a shared credit on a chapter if that's what they want to do. The only proviso, is that the lead writer is responsible for making sure they hold the copyright in their entire submission before submitting.

I'd be disappointed* if anyone deliberately submitted a 'joke' chapter because no matter how funny I might personally find an in-joke filled effort, there'd be 23 other chapter writers that were put out that someone in their version of the book wasn't taking it seriously.

* - probably to the point of rejecting the chapter and either requesting a complete redraft (which I have done once in the previous 4 events) or simply missing the chapter in favour of including the chapter brief instead (which, again, I've only had to do once, and that was because of a no show in the days when we only had one book).

Yes!

Go read "The Dark". Then write the next chapter, starting immediately after the book ends.
Email what you come up with to me by close of play Wednesday (by your own timezone).

Did you stay up waiting for my submission?

It is amazing how, unless one tells everyone "bugger OFF!" life gets in the way. NiaD'15 "bugger off" sign officially posted.
