That is a difficult question to answer. For some, NaNoWriMo presented an opportunity to push themselves to complete their novels or to get back into writing itself. Others used the month of November to get their novels ready for publication. Depending on how NaNoWriMo went, authors will either continue pushing on, or they will be considering the next stage of their work.
Editing is a critical stage in any novel. This is especially true when it comes to NaNoWriMo works. Quite often, authors become focused on reaching their word count target and as a result, errors can creep in. It is imperative that you take the time look back over what you wrote and make any changes that need to be made.
NaNoWriMo also provided the chance for works that had already been completed to be tweaked before being sent off to copy editors and publishers. This first edit is a chance for authors to tighten their plots, ensure their work is well-structured, and even make last-minute additions. However, the work of a copy editor should be seriously considered.
