Post NaNoWriMo: I Wrote a Novel. Now What?

Post #NaNoWriMo: I Wrote a Novel. Now What? #PostNaNoWriMo #NaNoWriMo2016

With the writing frenzy of November now behind us, many NaNoWriMo's are left asking "I wrote a novel, now what?"

Writing the first draft of a novel in 30 days (or less) is a huge achievement but it's only the first step. Now you'll need to rewrite it, edit it, and do all the other things that lead to turning it into a published book.

This video takes a look at what I'm doing post-NaNoWriMo and some of the books that I'm using for research and reference:

Books mentioned in video:

No Plot? No Problem!

Self-Editing For Fiction Writers

The Bestseller Code

The Everything Guide To Writing A Romance Novel

Getting Your Book Published For Dummies

WD Writer's Market (link to 2017 edition)

Did you win NaNoWriMo 2016? Are you planning on jumping straight into rewrites and revisions, or will you wait for the new year? Got a suggestion of a book I should check out to help me in the post-NaNoWriMo stage? Leave a comment below.
