Extra details for Tablo’s NaNo Challenge

Hi there,

Day 3 of NaNoWriMo! Hope your writing is going well and you're setting aside enough time to write each day.

Here's a few extra notes to help with submissions to Tablo's NaNo Challenge:

- Share your novel gradually as you write chapter by chapter or you can submit it at the end of November.

- Please ONLY share novels in this space – no short stories, no non-fiction etc. Thanks.

- If you published your book before November then it’s not part of NaNoWriMo as the challenge is to write a new novel afresh. We will be moderating entries to only show eligible books and we’ll have to discount novels written before November from our challenge.

- We know the whole idea of NaNoWriMo is to write a draft, it's not final - the publishers know this and are looking for novels with potential.

We're already enjoying what you've shared - looking forward to reading more.

Hi, Jemma.

I have revised and rewrote my novel from scratch since the NaNoWriMo month began, is it still eligible?

Hi there - if the novel was previously shared on Tablo (i.e. before 1 Nov.) then it's wouldn't be eligible - it has to be a new submission. But there's a way around that if you've revised and substantially changed it etc - you could just create a new book and add it since it's a different version.
