National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) concluded this week as participants counted a collective total of 2,799,449,947 words.
While these writers worked, we published daily links to writing tools and tips during NaNoWriMo, and we’ve collected the individual posts below. The advice will work all year round for writers of all stripes.
Here is our final piece of advice: Take a break and then edit the heck out of your manuscript. March 2011 is National Novel Editing Month, and we will post editing tools and tips all month long. Remember your NaNoWriMo manuscript is just a draft–it takes a lot more work to publish.
