Invites are out! Camp NaNoWriMo is Next!

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:D Once in April, again in July. I’m planning on doing it in April and if enough of you join me for July, I just may go for that one too. :D

I’ve chosen the story I’m going to use in April already, and I’ve already done a large chunk of planning and deciding things. However! You know my rule, I won’t write the outline until a week until April. (I’ve decided lately that I am a strict outliner who is getting every detail made before the draft–because I hate revising.)

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 April 1, and again on July 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!

  1. Awesome! I will definitely be participating, unless school gets in the way. I have a lot to finish up in order to graduate this year, and might not have time to write a novel in April. However, it is my goal to try to write TWO novels in April, if possible. The plot outlines for the books are almost finished, and I’m super exited! The first two novels tie directly into a third novel, so stopping and waiting ’til July to pick things back up might be hard. If you couldn’t tell, I’m really excited about this.

    • Who wouldn’t be excited! (Not exited though) We got a conference at our church going on, but that isn’t stopping me. Neither is school! And hope this novel–well I have great hopes for this novel. But only one.

        • I’ve a lot of ideas, I’m still not sure which subplots I’m using. A women loses her memory, but finding herself in no place, marries the man who says they were engaged. It’s not a happy marriage two years later when she meets Silvia. Anyway! Lot’s a stuff.

          • Interesting. Good luck with those ideas.
            So how much have you outlined? I mean, I know you’re not gonna write the actual outline until the week before, but what do you have down so far?

I love comments! Please tell me what you think.
