10. NaNoWriMo 2015: The Finish Line
This is apparently the Korean drama recommendation episode! This week JJ and Kelly tackle the end of NaNoWriMo. Sort of. We hope. Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving! We will be on hiatus next week, but will pick up again in December! Gobble, gobble.
Have some tropes!
Bicker Bicker, Kiss Kiss (What TVTropes calls Slap-Slap-Kiss)
Kong-ji, Pat-ji (Korean Cinderella)
Remember, whether or not you "win" NaNoWriMo this year, be proud of everything you have accomplished! Success isn't defined solely by word count, and hopefully you've taken away some tools and lessons from the experience.

Off Menu Recommendations
It's the holidays! Movies! Time! Netflix and chill!
Full House (Korean drama)
Propose (Korean drama)
This drama is directed by Yoon Sok Ho, who is my mother's favorite director because he doesn't resort to Kong-ji, Pat-ji storylines.
Rooftop Prince (Korean drama)
Cabaret (1998 Broadway Revival)
The Lord of the Rings extended trilogy
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
That's all for this week! We are returning to our old format, wherein we discuss a publishing topic in depth. Leave your suggestions in the comments or email us or ask us on Tumblr! The next episode will be a year end round-up, but 2016 (Already????) is a blank slate, y'all!
