The beginning of the new year has finally arrived, and with it come all sorts of exciting new changes. It’s a new month, a new year, and a new decade.
Promises will be made. Diets will be started. Gym memberships will be opened. Diets will be blown. Gym memberships will be cancelled.
Apart from all the obvious things that come with this segue into January, I think it’s safe to say that for many of you, the new month marks another milestone: an entire thirty days respite from your NaNoWriMo novel. What better opportunity to begin the arduous journey of editing your manuscript to perfection?
