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.

Jemma x

Hello! I’ve been submitting my novel as I write, but I can never seem to find it in the “submitted entries” section, do I need to do more than submit it?

Catherine sorry I missed this! It sure is there - have seen it in trending - fyi only a certain amount of books come up in those carousels you can see, but if they've been added they're there for us to see. Good luck with the final few days!

Hello! I've been uploading my Nanowrimo novel in batches of five chapters every few days, would that penalise me at all or is this method OK? :)

No problem! Regularly updating/adding will give you more chance of going into trending along with the amount of reads...all the best with it!

Just added my book. Hopefully, it qualifies. I started it earlier in the year but took a break until now. I need to finish it up. :) So whether it qualifies or not, I am working on it. :)

Hi, Jemma.

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

Thumb 7a2ca6b9 b1d9 4147 9254 f304970d83d6

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.

Hi. Is it still possible to keep adding new chapters to my book that I entered in the NaNoWriMo challenge even though the deadline has passed?

Thumb 0475ddeb c1b5 401f aea3 39e8b5dccef8

Sorry for the (long!) delay here Bethany and Catherine, just saw your questions above. That's ok since the bulk of it was added during the legit period.

Thumb 23af5e62 9ac5 4e3c baed 371764155778

Oh Jemma I've continued writing mine should I not I didn't know we had to stop oops should I stop adding to it now

Thumb 0475ddeb c1b5 401f aea3 39e8b5dccef8

HI Susan - it's ok since the bulk was added during that NaNo period specified. Thanks
