Camp NaNo April 2024



Image

Welcome to the first NaNo event of 2024ǃ Alongside the one true NaNo which happens every year in November, we also run a few mini-NaNos called Camp NaNos. (NaNo is a short form for "National Novel Writing Month"). While the goal in November is to write 50,000 words, the aim of Camp NaNo is up to youː you set your own prose writing goal, and you work to achieve it.

Stepsː

1. Set your goalː do you want to write 20,000 words? Or 50,000? Do you want to revise something, or maybe plan a new novel? It's up to youǃ

2. Make your threadː make a thread to keep track of your progress in the Camp NaNo Forums. Just like in NaNo, you report your daily/weekly progress in this thread and maybe share snippets if you like.

3. Visit other people's threads and spread encouragementː unless someone says "no comments please," do pop in to like people's updates, say "Great goingǃ" or "I love that snippet you sharedǃ", because it really does help motivate people.

4. When Camp NaNo starts on April 1st, start updating your threadː you can give your daily wordcount, or just mention some parts of your planning that you completed - this depends on your goal. It's up to you what you share and when!

5. Have funǃ (This part is mandatory I'm afraid)


The Official NaNoWriMo site, though not linked to YWS, is a good resource to use. It can help you keep track of your wordcount if you have a wordcount goal.


We'll hopefully be having some write-ins throughout the month where you can work on reviewing, NaPo, Camp NaNo, or all of the above. Subscribe to this thread also, as we'll post further events and hashtags to do with Camp NaNo here!
