What's Next?

For this challenge, we're at the end of the line. I will announce the winner of the drawing on 11/10/15 on the There Are No Rules blog. Plus, I'll probably include some more information on how folks from this challenge are planning to stay in touch.

Beyond that, keep checking the There Are No Rules blog for helpful information from myself and all the other Writer's Digest editors. Plus, there's a chance a few guest posts may be in the works from your fellow October challenge participants.
