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.
