I usually have a dickens of a time coming up with the first post for the new year. Luckily, I'd already written a guest post for Operation Awesome's New Year's Revisions Conference that I am shamelessly going to use to kick off the New Year on my own blog, too:
I’ve written before on why NaNoWriMo isn’t my favorite; it all circles around the impulsiveness that comes from a freshly finished WIP. Definitely, that accomplishment deserves a BIG CONGRATS WITH LOTS OF CONFETTI AND THIS AWESOME CAT
But then slow down. Funnel that excitement into your NEXT challenge: revising and polishing until it’s PERFECT.
Happy New Year - cheers to an AMAZING 2013!! (You know, since the world didn't end and all...)
