Camp NaNoWriMo, July 2013

Another Camp NaNoWriMo in July! ^o^

This July I am not going for 50,000, not 80,000, but 100,004 words! *faints* I’m not asking you to do that though. Because you can change your word-count to whatever suits your month, even 10,000 words count.

For some people who follow my blog, you’re used to skipping any post with a mention of “NaNoWriMo” “novels” or “insane”, but take another look and and give it a second thought. This is for normal and notnormal alike. ^_^ Even if you’ve never liked writing before, you can always try.

For other people, maybe you skip every post but the ones that mention “NaNoWriMo”, and in that case, gear up for another month of noveling!

For visitors who don’t yet know what Camp NaNoWriMo is, I’m only too happy to explain.

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for short) is an exciting challenge to write 50,000 words in the month of November. Camp NaNoWriMo is the same challenge, but adapted to fit the Summer months. In July, you can change your wordgoal, choose cabin mates to be partnered with, but basically do the same thing–have fun writing!

This month, honestly, I’m not going to try to get something wonderful this month. In fact, not even something I would dare to show people, I did that last month. This month, *sigh* I’m just writing for the fun of writing. I’m not planning, not paying attention to the plot, I’m just not. That may disappoint some people, but it’s just been too long since I wrote that kind of story. (November 2011 to be exact.)

Tell me what you are doing! Do you know yet? If not–IT STARTS IN THIRTEEN DAYS!

Good luck, peeps! ^o^

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!

Camp NaNoWriMo - An idyllic writers retreat, smack-dab in the middle of your crazy life.

This post is a little early, like three months early, but I couldn’t resist sending out the invitations. It’s never too soon or too late to join. I’ll be reposting this post sometime to remind you all. You don’t have to have any writing/NaNoWriMo experience to join and win! And I’ll be boosting you along the way. (You lucky people.)

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.
