Any other Wrimos receive this email from Tim Kim? Scared, happy, excited… Read on to find out why!
It’s January, and the “Now What?” Months are here… And here is my forecast for 2015: by the end of the year, I will have a final, polished version of my NaNo-novel. Do you also see a final draft a-brewing on your horizon? Here’s how we can tackle the next couple months:
Make a commitment. First things first, really. Sign the 2015 Revision Contract and publicly proclaim your noveling forecast with a shiny badge. (You will need to log in to your NaNo account to do all this commitment stuff)
Learn from the experts. The good news is, we don’t have to break new ground. There are foundations to build upon. Authors Jason Hough and Susan Dennard both took their NaNoWriMo drafts, edited them, and went on to publish whole series of successful novels.
Make a $60 donation to join Susan and Jason as they talk revision and publishing in a webinar on January 15 at 4:00 PM PST. Your donation will also go towards supporting creative writing in libraries, classrooms, and living rooms around the world.
Bookmark the “Now What?” Months page. Because the stuff above is really just a sprinkle compared to the storm of resources we’ve got for you. Check back to find out about future webinars with editors, tweet-chats with literary agents, and communities full of accountability partners.
