Dmitri Gheorgheni - Not Banned in China

The Create Team have been getting ready for November. Since you're new around here, you may not know about the madness that sets in. It's called NaJoPoMo.

Here's last year's: A87920571

Last year, the Post did photos. This year, we're going all out and having a group-write 'novel'. I'm doing the setup and assigning the 'parts'. If you opt in, all you have to do is follow the story and write a post every day (or less, if you're busy) from the point of view of your assigned character. It starts on 1 November and ends on the 30th. There are no costs (or prizes) involved, just a lot of silliness.

About a dozen people will be mucking in on this tale, which is set in a fictional town called Hooverville. I'd like you to be the village fireman, if you're up for it. He has the siren.

What do you say? smiley - grovel

smiley - dragon

I'll go and find out more about the raison d'ĂȘtre of Fred Ireland the fifth and the 1951 Kenworth fire truck he inherited , as a preparation for this event.

smiley - ok You've got the idea. Oh, and you get to operate the siren - this is the loudest thing in town (with the possible exception of the church organ).

It sounds like this:

Good. I hope they didn't put the church organ on the roof. Those things tend to be quite sensitive to the occasional shower.

We stole the map from there. smiley - winkeye I expect that by the time you're all finished, the natives won't recognise the place. smiley - rofl

Mrs Hoggett said, 'Why not? That town is Mayberry, anyway.' smiley - winkeye

It doesn't say on the package where the Hooverville happenings will air every day. I suppose I have to subscribe to a main entry?

See this page? A87951720

Every day, there will be a new thread at the bottom of it. A happening will be posted.

Also, that's where you put your contribution. For example, on 1 November, you write in the 1 November thread. smiley - winkeye Then everybody can read everybody else's story. Also, they can take their doings into account when writing. For instance, if Wilhelmina Schreckenghast (see cast list at A87953313 ) has a sign in her window that advertises 'blueberry waffles, today's special', then you could go in and eat a blueberry waffle.

This is going wonderfully well.

I just have one request: Could you give me a heads-up if you planned to have the power be off between midnight and 12:30? I'd have to make alternate arrangements for my post, which you realise comes first. I don't want us to get tangled up. smiley - winkeye

On the other hand, with the speed of a B-52, etc, I'm assuming this will all blow over in the next two hours? smiley - rofl (I've seen 'Dawn's Early Light' at least twice...)

I already answered that in the other thread:

[Can I place an order for the street lights to go out at about 10:04 and assorted booming noises at some distance at 10:05 (just one or two minutes wlll do) for the next hour installment? That would apparently save a lot of lives, according to the scriptures]

Maybe the problem of hindsight could be resolved if I send the next bit to you beforehand? I'll do that.

Sending my text document to H2G2 postteam mail right now...
