If I don’t insist on a new genre each time, I can’t call it quits when we’ve done them all.
.

I can come up with all sorts of genres. :wink:

Haha.

Those that follow me on Instagram will know I’ve been on holiday for a few weeks. I’ve also just started a new job. Those two between them have put a bit of (hopefully minor) disruption to our normal timetable. I’ll talk to the necessary stakeholders and see if we can’t get a date lined up.

Scraps, genre ideas are always welcome*! I’ve done no thinking at all on this yet so everything is to play for.

Genre:
BONDAGE&SADO-MASOCHISM, or, if y'wanna posh it up a bit ... ANATOMY-PSYCHOLOGY-PHILOSOPHY.
Even more exciting, would be Niad's first, 'Graphic Novel' :twisted: Image


Hope this helps,
Vic

How about: A group of writers, most of whom have never met, decide to write a novel in 24 hours without knowing the plot or what each other is writing. Everything they write comes true...
Complete and utter NOMsense.

How about: Criminal mastermind uses a stable of unsuspecting writers to execute the perfect crime. Set to work for 24 hours on what they presume are isolated parts of a fictonal plot, they unwittingly plan the heist of the century. As the "chapters" come in, hour by hour, the caper unfolds in real time in London.

Wouldn't even have y' write it. All you'd need do, is copy and paste from any of the online newspaper's coverage of the BREXIT farago
