Next month is NaNoWriMo!! National Novel Writing Month. It’s a great time to finish that novel that you’ve been writing. I’ve had a few inquiries regarding NaNoWriMo and whether or not people actually finish their novels and achieve any success. The good news is, they do! Yes, people actually finish their novels during NaNoWriMo. In fact, there is an archive on the NaNo site with lists of novels that were written during a NaNo event, and were published. The list is separated into two parts: traditionally published and self published. I find this to be very encouraging, and I think you will, too.
Check out the archive here: http://archive.nanowrimo.org/published-wrimos
