Did you ever wish that NaNoWriMo was held at some time other than November, when you’re trying to get ready for the holidays?
Well, give Camp NaNoWriMo a try! There will be two sessions this year. The first one starts on April 1st and the other one starts July 1st. Not sure if I can do April, but I’m definitely thinking of July…
From their website:
What is Camp NaNoWriMo?
Based on November’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), Camp NaNoWriMo provides the online support, tracking tools, and hard deadline to help you write the rough draft of your novel in a month… other than November!
What: Writing a novel from scratch in one month’s time.
Who: You! (And about 20,000 other novelists around the world.) Let’s write some perhaps-awful, but definitely lengthy, prose together.
Why: The reasons are endless! To actively participate in one of our era’s most enchanting art forms! To write without having to obsess over quality. To be able to make obscure references to passages from our novels at parties.
When: You can sign up anytime to add your name to the roster. Writing begins at 12:00 AM on April 1, and again on July 1. To be added to the official list of winners, you must reach your word-count goal by 11:59 PM on the last day of the month. Once your novel has been verified by our web-based team of robotic word counters, the partying begins.
