I use Grammarly plagiarize check because I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

November 1st, 2013 was the second year that I tried to complete nanowrimo. Last year I was new and extremely excited to be writing 50,000 words in the course of a month. I spent hours inside wearing my bright florescent sweater and drinking tea, writing word after word like my life depended on it. This year was quite different. I did not plan out and set up a plan for what I was going to write this year, and that is why I failed and was not able to complete those 50,000 words I wanted so badly to be put down.

I congratulate those of you who have been bathing in the glory and success you got on the last day. So not letting this be a pity party of me not accomplishing my goals, I have some tips for you guys that will be helpful for editing and getting a published copy of your book.

  1. check out the nanowrimo website and use all of their resources-there are so many opportunities that are in the sponsor tab of the website. All of which you should take advantage of like Amazon's CreateSpace which gives you two free copies of your novel. 
  2. get a writing partner-if you didn't already have one, there's no better time than right now, right? I mean you've got a loose rough draft ready to be teared apart and then put back into the beauty it is. Tumblr's writing tag can be helpful to find others that are looking for writing partners like you. Also goodreads, for example the Beta Reader Group, which I am a part of. Plus, I'd love to read anything you've written during nanowrimo. Just send me an email at
  3. use website is like your own personal editor that you can use anytime of day you want. Basically someone who won't get annoyed or be too busy to help you when you most need it. :)
If you guys have anymore ideas or suggestions that I can add to the list feel free to leave a comment below. 

Have fun writing/editing
