Writing Wednesday: NaNoEdMo

For those of you that know about NaNoWriMo, next month is NaNoEdMo.

For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, which is November, and NaNoEdMo is National Novel Editing Month, which is March. OK so far?

For a more detailed explanation of NaNoWriMo see my earlier posts and the website here. I’ve just discovered NaNoEdMo, and the website is here. This is their introduction:

Welcome to National Novel Editing Month! (Otherwise known as NaNoEdMo, or just EdMo)

You have entered the portal to the crazy world of novel editing. Have you written a 50,000 word novel but haven’t edited it yet? Then you’ve come to the right place! It is here that people from all over the world gather together to spend 50 hours in March editing their novels. This is not as easy as it might sound but the forums are available to get advice and ask all the important questions you may have. Advice from real published authors will also be here to help you and a certificate of completion awaits each winner at the end of the month.

We know it’s a crazy thing to do, but it is loads of fun and we do hope you’ll stay. We’ve got many pots of strong coffee brewing to help keep you going as well as a store room full of sugary candied goodness just waiting for you to jump in and start editing!

Think you have what it takes to edit fifty hours in one month? Then sign up and get your red pen ready because on March 1st the fun begins!

About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
