NaNoWriMo Giveaway (Day 22): Starting Your Novel Right

In honor of National Novel Writing Month, I’m going to be offering free content each weekday in November to help all NaNoWriMo participants (and, really, anyone who is working on a novel).
Here is today’s giveaway:

Day 22: As you prepare for the frenzy of writing to come this weekend, be sure to take a moment to review those first few pages of your manuscript to see if what you’re writing quickly is also written well. This checklist, inspired by Jeff Gerke’s book The First 50 Pages, details the most important things to keep in mind. Don’t start rewriting now, of course – you’ve got to finish that first draft – but be aware each point and start thinking about how you might revise for publication following the holidays. 2013 is the year you’re getting published, after all. Right? Right! To get this freebie, just enter your e-mail address below.
