I can’t believe how fast the first three months of the year have gone. End of March and still snow on the ground, but that is not what this post is about. It is camp time! If you have read the blog before you know I work better with deadlines and commitments. So for April I signed up for Camp Nanowrimo . It is part of National Novel Writing Month which takes place in November where you write a novel (50,000) in a month. Camp Nanowrimo is similar but a bit different in that you can choose your word count. It is also neat in that if you want they will assign you to a cabin with writers from all over the world. The cabin has the writer’s bio and an area for cabin mates to discuss what they are doing and encourage each other. It is free and you can get on-line support. You can also check out forums and get in on discussions. If you, like me, need that extra push to get writing this is a neat way to do it.
Here is their direct quote “Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual writer’s retreat, designed for maximum flexibility and creativity. We have Camp sessions in both April and July, and we welcome word-count goals between 30 and 1,000,000. In addition, writers can tackle any project they’d like, including new novel drafts, revision, poetry, scripts, and short stories.”
Check it out and hoping we connect at camp!
You can always start now!
