Affectionately known as NaNoEdMo, the 6th annual National Novel Editing Month is set to kick off tomorrow, March 1.
What is NaNoEdMo?
As per the official NaNoEdMo website:
“You have entered the portal to the crazy world of novel editing. 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.
We know it’s a crazy thing to do, but it is loads of fun and we do hope you’ll stay. We’ve got many pots of strong coffee brewing to help keep you going as well as a store room full of sugary candied goodness just waiting for you to jump in and start editing!
Think you have what it takes to edit fifty hours in one month? Then sign up and get your red pen ready because on March 1st the fun begins!”
–Anna, Queen of NaNoEdMo
If you participated in The National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) or if you have a manuscript you’ve toyed with editing, then wait no longer! Join us for a month of hard, happy and satisfying work.
I will be participating in my first NaNoEdMo this year with my manuscript “Falling Up”. According to the official countdown clock, the fun for me begins in just 32 minutes! The downside of this is it’ll limit the amount of time I’ll have to blog and when I do, I’ll probably be obsessing over the editing process. So bear with me, dear readers. Hopefully, when all the dust settles, my very first novel will be crafted, polished, and ready to publish.
