Being on vacation means more time to read, swim, drink (then drink again), relax, and sleep. It means little to no time to write or edit. This is why my big announcement as of late is that I've already quit NaNoWriMo this year.
Don't think of me as a quitter, I certainly don't.
Over the last year I've written over 240k, debuted a novel, and continue to write and edit. My hubbs was deployed for four months and he just got home this month (strike one against November), and now we're on an 8 day vacation (strike two) plus the week we get back holds Thanksgiving (strike three). I won NaNo last year, but this year I just had too much going on, and I couldn't hack it.
That doesn't mean that my tips are any less useful. I know you were thinking that, don't lie. I won NaNo in 2013, and I won't it 4 times this year from May - August (plus half of the month in September). So I definitely honed the tips I've share here and on Wild Things Editing.
To highlight our new critique package we are having a sale through the rest of November on Reader Report critiques. Kim and I both have limited spots, so hop on over to Wild Things Editing and book your spot now :)
A new opportunity with these friends has presented itself, and I am so excited to join the YA-NA Sisterhood!
A little bit about the group:
