National Novel Editing Month

March is National Novel Editing Month (NaNoEdMo), a time for writers with unpolished manuscripts to clean up their copy–a good opportunity to revisit your National Novel Writing Month work.

To celebrate this month of editing, we will share one practical editing tool every day for the rest of the month (just like our NaNoWriMo writing tips). If you want to join the festivities, visit the NaNoEdMo webpage and follow the NaNoEdMo hashtag on Twitter.

Here’s more from the site: “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.”
