NaNoWriMo November: Are you participating?

It’s that time of the year again. Autumn is slowly showing signs of breaking through, which means NaNoWriMo is almost around the corner. Are you participating? Let me know!

What is NaNoWriMo?

The National Novel Writing Month is an international writing event where you write, in your own favorite writing place, 50.000 words of your novel. It starts November 1st, 12:00AM and ends November 30th, 11:59PM in your own timezone.

Why Participate?

NaNoWriMo offers you the possibility to just write, ignoring all mistakes you make (shut out that inner editor!), just keep on writing. It helps you to get  into a daily habit of writing.

Additionally, there are literally tens of thousands upon tens of thousands of people participating at the same time. You will get support through the forums, Facebook, Twitter and more!

HOW much do I have to write a day?

50k words translates to 1,667 words per day. I know, it’s a lot! I’ll give you tips on how to break this down and start a daily writing habit before November 1st. If you have any tips, share them here!

Camp NaNoWriMo July 2019

Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo is an event where you can join a virtual cabin with 19 other writers and enjoy a month of writing frenzy, inspiration and much more.

What is camp all about?

The main thing, of course, is writing. You’ll set up a goal you want to reach this month and try to achieve it. And you meet up with several writers in an online cabin.

Your goal

Your goal can be set in words, hours, minutes, lines and pages, unlike in November, where the only goal is in words. You can chose a lesser amount than the normal 50.000 words NaNoWriMo November has. And of course, if you really wanna go for it, you can choose an even greater goal.

What will you write?

During camp, you’re free to write anything you want. While the goal for NaNoWriMo November is to write a novel, during camp you can edit your drafts, work on world building, plot your next novel, do research or basically anything else you’d like to write during Camp.

Cabins?

What are these cabins about? I’ve heard that question often. Basically it’s a virtual cabin where you group with 19 other writers. At Camp NaNo you enter your project details and you state if you’d like to be added to a cabin randomly or you can set up your own cabin. If you don’t want to start your own cabin and do not want to be entered to just some cabin, you can also look on the forums for a cabin to join.

Camp activities?

Are there any camp activities? Well, that all depends on the group. In the groups I’ve been in, we have regular chats in the weekends and we’re quite active during the week as well. Once camp’s over, we even have our own (closed) Slack group where keep in touch.
