I’m pretty sure y’all know I’m not a fan of NaNo. Not at all. I don’t see any positives from it. But I just read something that I wanted to share.
Last year a seventh grade girl wrote a first draft of her first book during NaNo. That’s cool, right? Plenty of people do the exact same thing and a short while later they put the book on Amazon or Smashwords thinking it’s ready to see the light of day. And mostly they’re wrong and it isn’t.
Now back to the seventh grade girl. She edited and rewrote for a year. Am I sitting here telling you that her book is a literary masterpiece or even decent? No. Cause I haven’t read it. But at least this young girl knew better than to just throw up some rough NaNo novel online for people to buy. Maybe other participants can learn a thing or two from this girl. What do you think?
