In three weeks’ time, National Novel Writing Month will begin. Hundreds of thousands of writers across the world. 30 days. 50,000 words before the end of November.
But then what? What are you going to do with that pile of words come December? Put it in a drawer? Rewrite? Find beta readers?
Or are you going to enter a giveaway for a full developmental edit of your NaNoWriMo 2016 project? I thought so.
In honour of NaNoWriMo 2016, I am giving away a FREE developmental edit up to 50K words worth $575/£465. What is more, I have teamed up with my colleague Michelle Leedy, who will be giving away a FREE copy-edit up to 50K words. That’s two separate giveaways, two chances to win!
Is this giveaway for me?
Did you or are you going to sign up for NaNoWriMo 2016? Then, yes. Do you write in English or Dutch? Then, yes.
What can I win?
A full developmental edit up to 50K words.
A developmental edit is a content edit that helps you develop every single aspect of your story, including plot, characters, structure, pace, voice, audience, and setting. It points out larger issues and zooms in on every little detail. A full developmental edit will get you two separate documents. The first document will contain my overall assessment and advice on the story as a whole, including strengths and weaknesses. The second document will contain your work including extensive comments, suggestions, and track changes on all aspects of your story.
How do I enter the giveaway?
- Like my Facebook page.
- Tell me about your plans for NaNoWriMo by leaving a comment on this post.
Until when can I sign up for the giveaway?
You can sign up until the 30th of November, midnight GMT.
I didn’t hit 50,000 words. Am I still eligible?
No worries. Depending on your post-NaNoWriMo plans, I either wait for you to finish your project or I edit the words you did write during November.
What happens if I win the drawing but I’ve quit my project?
Again, no worries. Let me know a.s.a.p. that you did so I can draw another winner.
What if my project exceeds 50K words?
I’ll edit anything up to 60K words for free. I offer a 15% discount on anything exceeding 60K words. You can find my rate here.
When will I hear whether I’ve won?
I will draw a winner on the first of December and will let you know via Facebook.
This is a great offer, but what I really need after NaNoWriMo is a copy-edit.
You’re in luck! I teamed up with my colleague Michelle Leedy from perfectlywrite.co.uk and she is giving away a free copy-edit up to 50K words as we speak! Head over to her website, and enter her NaNoWriMo giveaway.
