NiAD 10th Anniversary Edition

NiAD 10th Anniversary Edition

Novel in a Day is an annual event that usually takes place in October. However, to mark the tenth anniversary, we were given the opportunity to collaborate on an extra edition by re-visiting the very first NiAD, The Dark.

One of the things I love about participating in NiAD is having no idea what the story is about, apart from the details given to me in my chapter brief of course! This time, however, we had the original story that was created in 2011 and that created a whole new experience.

The tradition of NiAD is akin to creating a series of short stories that share some elements of character and plot, but the sky is the limit on how those are implemented into each chapter. In this version, I did write my chapter with the overall plot and ending in mind, but it was a lot of fun to see how many of my fellow writers did something completely unexpected and different. That is perhaps the best thing about this  special edition of NiAD…being surprised when you already know how the story ends!

As always, the NiAD completed editions are available on the Literature and Latte forum for free to read and download. If you do visit, be sure and check out all the great content and Scrivener information via the forum and the L&L main product website.

Happy writing and reading!

This novella was written on April 4th, 2020, by me and my fellow NiAD collaborators. Seven versions were created due to overwhelming interest, and as always, it was incredibly fun!

NiAD 9th Edition

NiAD 9th Edition

The 9th edition of Novel in a Day was written on October 19, 2019, and it was my second time participating under the penname E. Kinna.

It was just as much fun (and stress!) as the first time, and the talent of my fellow writers is amazing.

There were three versions of this novel compiled, each with a totally different feel even though the overall plot remained the same. My fellow collaborators and I worked hard over 24 hours to create our individual chapters. It’s amazing how it all comes together!
