so you’ve finished nano. What’s next?
So, what next?
First things first. Marathoners talk about a post-marathon exhaustion and depression and I hear the same thing from Nano people. It is one of the downsides about this approach—it’s great to get words on a page, but it’s important to be realistic about what you have on December 1, and, in short, what you have is a lot of work to be done. I’ve talked about that a little before, but I’ll say again here that the most important thing is to stay focused and remember that you’re well on your way. So, take a breather, and make a schedule that’s less demanding and keep the momentum going.
