Don’t Forget To Edit: NaNoWriMo Tip #30

Congratulations to all the National Novel Writing Month writers in the GalleyCat audience for surviving another year with the writing marathon. Romance writers can even consider submitting your NaNoWriMo novel to Avon Impulse. But don’t forget–you still need to edit!

In 90 days, you should take the National Novel Editing Month challenge and clean up your masterpiece. Follow this link to explore our growing collection of editing tools as well.

Here’s more about NaNoEdMO: “Have you written a 50,000 word novel but haven’t edited it yet? Then you’ve come to the right place! It is here that people from all over the world gather together to spend 50 hours in March editing their novels. This is not as easy as it might sound but the forums are available to get advice and ask all the important questions you may have. Advice from real published authors will also be here to help you and a certificate of completion awaits each winner at the end of the month.”

This is our final NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project.
