November is over and our novels are done - sort of. Some more than others, and some still have a fair way to go to reach the end.

December is traditional NaNo editing month, so is it worth leaving this forum open for support as we tweak the commas and scrap huge swathes of chapters? Or would we be better off locking the forum until October next year, in case we're mad enough to try it all over again.

Whatever - it's been a lot of fun and congrats to everyone who took part. It's a major achievement to even make a start on something as daunting as NaNo.

I'd definitely keep it open for now; for me at least, I know that for now I am not setting eyes on that novel for a good few weeks at least (not that I could anyway - dry.gif to exams), but I am definitely going to finish it and do some rewriting. I think March is also a rewriting month, so it would be good to have it open for then? smile.gif

*twacks story* I only wish it was finished! It almost doesn't feel right to be celebrating, when it's not... sad.gif
