During the “Now What?” Months in January and February, we support the revision and publishing process.
It’s an extension of our anything-goes, fun-filled noveling philosophy, with the added aim of helping you fulfill your novel’s potential: from first draft to final.
Set new goals for your novel.
Use our Goal Trackers to set a creative goal for the beginning of the year, whether you want to keep track of the words added to your draft, or the hours you spend revising.
Prepare for your novel at a #NaNoNowWhat event!
To see what time an event starts in your time zone, click into the event, then click “copy to my calendar”.

Are the 50,000 words you pounded out in November languishing somewhere in the recesses of your laptop? If you’re unsure about how to start revising, or even how to identify problems with your setting, plot, or characters, we can help! This webcast will focus on revision and self-editing through a discussion with NaNoWriMo writer and editor Ally Machate, and then include a brief demo of AutoCrit.
AutoCrit is the world’s only editing software built exclusively for fiction writers. Powerful algorithms analyze your prose and provide instant, genre-specific feedback. With the click of a button, AutoCrit provides step-by-step recommendations for improving your manuscript in over 20 areas and guides you through the revision process. It’s the mentor that picks up where friends, family, and other beta readers leave off!
Use these resources to make a revision and publishing plan.
