IWSG - NANO






 Question: Win or not, do you usually finish your NaNo project? Have any of them gone on to be published?

Yes, and no. I’ve finished several times and almost finished others but the works have all gone on to be published in one way or another. I’ve always considered the work successful, but I’ve yet to go direct from NaNo to publication. My first, second, and usually even the third drafts are extremely ROUGH. 😊

The awesome co-hosts are Tonja Drecker, Diane Burton, MJ Fifield, and Rebecca Douglass! Be sure to stop by and wish them well!

  1. Hi Renee! Good writing during NaNo. I'm doing it, working on that sensuous Paris food story you read over for me once. Now my other ms is nearly ready to submit, that is the next task with my 2 critters.

    I didn't get to post this month, so don't bother visiting!

  4. Yeah, we all sure need some editing afterwards as one races through the month. Great they went on to be published too.

  5. Wow! Having all your NaNo work going on to be published is fantastic. It's almost impossible to go right from NaNo to publication, unless you have low standards for yourself.

  9. It's amazing that all of your NaNo projects have gone on to be published! My NaNo stories are all super rough, too, at the end of November. And unfinished, but that's cool, too. :)

    Happy writing!

  11. Congrats on the NaNo successes! I've used it successfully, too, but only if I remember that the first draft is going to be terrible no matter how long I spend on it.

  12. If anyone does go straight from NaNo to publication, then they are making a big mistake.

  13. How wonderful that your NaNo projects became published. I agree with Diane (above) that going from NaNo to publication is a big mistake. I would think it needs lots of revisions/editing. Best wishes.

  17. How cool that the NaNo challenges went so successfully for you. I am duly impressed, dear sister. I can't imagine me ever coughing up that many words in a single month, let alone have them be worthy of publication. You should be proud of yourself. You and your must kicked butt!

  18. Congrats on the successes - NaNo and otherwise! You totally deserve it. So impressed that all your drafts went on to publication. Seriously neat.

    I probably manage 50K in a year :)
