Camp NaNoWriMo

Many of you know about National Novel Writing Month. Fondly nicknamed NaNoWriMo, this non-profit initiative challenges people every November to write a 50,000-word first draft of a novel—and provides the camaraderie (via online communities and local meetups) that just might enable participants to succeed. If you missed the chance and don’t want to wait until Fall to try your hand at it—or if you think the concept sounds fun but there’s no way you can write that much that fast—you might want to check out Camp NaNoWriMo!

Camp NaNoWriMo is set up more loosely and is designed to provide a writing experience that you can tailor to your specific style and needs. Some people set smaller goals, like writing a 10,000-word short story, a script, or a collection of poetry. Camp NaNoWriMo will assign you to a 12-person “cabin” of like-minded writers who are working on similar projects. You can sign up now throug March 25th and write in the month of April. There will be an additional opportunity in July.
