For those of you who participated in NANOWRIMO – Congratulations!
50,000 words is a HUGE accomplishment! Now get busy fine tuning those amazing words into a publishable manuscript! That’s one of the reasons many editors and publishers despise NANO. Come December they receive an influx of unpolished manuscripts from writers who think that all it takes is a first draft.
I’m on my third draft for my WIP and it’s not ready yet.
So polish, polish, polish.
