Join us for Camp NaNo every April and July!

Chances are, you've heard about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo ), where writers challenge themselves to write 50,000 words during the month of November, typically on a new novel.

Camp NaNo is a similar idea, but more relaxed. For Camp NaNo, writers set their own goals. It can be a word count goal like in November, but modified for what you hope to achieve, either higher or lower. Or it can be another goal, such as the number of minutes/hours you want to write each day/week/month. Or your goal can center on the number of lines or pages that you want to complete.

In addition to being more personalized in terms of the length of your project, Camp NaNo also provides writers with the ability to work on whatever idea you have kicking around when Camp rolls around. You can of course start a new novel like you would for NaNo, or you could use Camp to plan your novel revisions for a project you've already written. In addition, you could use Camp to branch out and work on nonfiction, scripts, short stories, or other writing projects!

Where Do I Start?

Start your project thread in the Camp NaNoWriMo forum and start plotting your project! Read through some others' threads to gain inspiration or check out the archives to get an idea of how things have gone in previous years.

Then, once Camp NaNo starts (April or July 1st!) get to writing! Post your daily progress (in your planning thread or on your wall) and let the rest of us hype you up as you go! If you make wall posts, make sure to tag them with #CampNaNo to be sure we all can find your updates!

Finally, you have the option of joining the Official NaNoWriMo Site ! This is not in any way affiliated with YWS, but it can be a fun tool to use to update your daily word counts and see your progress bar filling up! You also can earn some fun badges over there, and even add friends to keep you accountable!

Happy Camping!

I have a question: if I've already started writing a novel can I still join? or do I have to do something entirely new that i haven't started working on yet

@TheMythMaster hi! Camp is pretty flexible, so you can work on whatever writing goals you want - a new novel, adding more to an existing novel, revising a novel, or even working on things like RPs and poetry. So go ahead and work on your current novel if that's what you'd like to do!
