November is National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo for short). So, every year since 2001, thousands of aspiring writers have tried to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. In 2011, Camp Nanowrimo was born. It operates on the same basic principles as Nanowrimo, except it takes place in the summer.
I'm going to be doing Camp Nanowrimo this July-and blogging about it. (Because what does one do after writing 1,667 words a day? Write a blog a post about it.)
There are a whole bunch of exciting changes taking place; you can set your own targets (but I'm sticking with the classic 50,000 words) and write in a wider variety of formats.
I'm really enthusiastic about doing it this year. I did it last year in June and it was a great experience. I would encourage anyone who is interested in writing a novel (or script) to participate.
Sign up for Camp Nanowrimo!
