So it’s seven months since the frantic November writing frenzy. It’s hard to believe time has passed that quickly. We participate in NaNoWriMo for various reasons and levels of success but what happens to those fifty thousand or more words once the 30th November deadline has been met?
Where is your manuscript from that month now? Has it been discarded? Are you working on it or did you publish it?
Do you have a stack of NaNo manuscripts piled up somewhere from previous years left in limbo? Will they ever be revisited?
My NaNo manuscripts have seen a variety of outcomes.
Life in Slake Patch – speculative fiction – awaiting revision and editing.
The Twesome Loop – reincarnation romance -awaiting revision and editing.
The Rython Kingdom – published as an e-book and print book – Smashwords and Amazon.
Ockleberries to the Rescue – edited and awaiting illustrations – launch October 2014
Willow Tree Tears – cowgirl romance – in editing and revision mode.
Maybe it would be an idea to revisit past NaNo manuscripts – would you like to ‘finish’ them for publication or utilize the theme to re-write a new narrative. We should not let all those hours of creativity go to waste.
What outcomes have your NaNoWriMo exertions had?
