Come one, come all and join in the insanity! As I have long mourned, National Novel Writing Month only happens once a year, but Camp NaNoWriMo happens twice. 😀 Once in June and again in August. So sign up at campnanowrimo.org and drop me a note if you want to be in my cabin. I’m planning on doing it in June, and if enough of you join me for August, I just may go for that one too. 😀 You don’t have to have any writing experience, and if you aren’t participating with me, you’ll get a lot of NaNoWriMo junk from my blog in the month of June.
What: Writing one 50,000-word novel from scratch in a month’s time.
Who: You! We can’t do this unless we have some other people trying it as well. Let’s write laughably awful yet 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. To be able to mock real novelists who dawdle on and on, taking far longer than 30 days to produce their work.
When: You can sign up anytime to add your name to the roster. Writing begins 12:00:01 AM on June 1, and again on August 1. To be added to the official list of winners, you must reach the 50,000-word mark by 11:59:59 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!
Come join us in the land of the bold, the ambitious, the relentless; come spend a month of wild literary abandon at Camp NaNoWriMo 2012!
