Have you heard of Camp NaNoWriMo? It’s an online community where 12 people are sorted into a writing group called a cabin. Then, for the month of April, you’re encouraged to consistently work on whatever project you’re itching to finish. I’m going to use the month to edit the novel I wrote during my first NaNoWriMo in 2013.
I’ve won two NaNoWriMos and this will be my first Camp NaNoWriMo. The difference between the two programs is the Camp version is supposed to be more laid back. You can write in any genre and any word count is allowed.
I love joining a community of other writers a few times a year – camps in April and July, regular Nano in November – it inspires me to write daily and the sense of accomplishment at the end is so nice!
There’s exactly one week left to prepare. So far I’ve filled out my camper profile, and started a to-do list of how I can whip my old novel into shape. I’ll probably write a few updates on here about my progress with my NaNo project and I’d love to hear if you’re participating!
