Dear NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) participants,

Iā€™m Miral Sattar, writer/journalist/techie and founder of BiblioCrunch.

Kudos to you for embarking on this novel-writing challenge! We’re proud to be an official sponsor for NaNoWriMo and we’ll be supporting our authors in a variety of ways. To start we’ll be hosting a series of Twitter chats on #indiechat (Tuesday 9pm EST).

But at the end of NaNoWriMo, what will you do? Will you need editorial advice? Will you want a professional manuscript critique?
