Congratulations, NaNoWriMo winners!
Did November fly by or what? We here at Swoon Reads HQ can’t believe it’s December already, but we know it must have gone by even faster for all the hard-working writers who participated in National Novel Writing Month. So congratulations to all of you–you made it to the end!
We were extremely proud and excited to be sponsors of this year’s NaNoWriMo for a lot of reasons. We love the way NaNo works to inspire writers and just get everything on the page. And we absolutely love the community aspect. Writing can be very solitary, but with NaNo you know you’re not alone.
The end of NaNoWriMo also coincides perfectly with our deadline for submissions to be considered for our first Swoon Reads book! If you spent November working on your YA romance, you have all of December to put the finishing touches on your manuscript. We’re accepting submissions until December 31st for our spring 2014 publication. Check out this earlier blog post to learn more about the plans for choosing our first book.
Let us know in the comments how your NaNoWriMo went! Did you finish a manuscript? Do you plan to submit what you worked on to Swoon Reads?
