NaNoWriMo!!

Since Camp NaNoWriMo is right around the corner, I'm curious- does anyone here participate in National Novel Writing Month events? I know I do pretty much religiously, and I always have so much fun. 

 

For those who don't know, NaNoWriMo is a challenge that takes place every November, where you attempt to write 50,000 words of your own novel in the span of 30 days. It seems terrifying, but I've done the 50k challenge twice now, and the hard work it takes was beyond worth it.

 

Next month is Camp NaNoWriMo, and if you're unsure about going for 50k, this could be a better fit. For one, the range of projects you can work on during the month is bigger- some people write nonfiction, poetry, screenplays and plays, or compilations of short stories. You can also choose your own word count goal for Camp, lower- or higher!- than 50k. (I'm shooting for 50k once again for Camp, though, I love a good challenge. :p)

 

If you like to write, whether professionally or just for fun, I highly recommend NaNoWriMo. It's such a rewarding experience, and the writing community (dubbed WriMos) NaNo has cultivated is so supportive and friendly, I've always felt so welcome among the other writers.

 

For the NaNo alums out there, or those who are going to participate for the first time this year, my username on nanowrimo.org and campnanowrimo.org is paigusmaximus if you want to be friends on those sites! See you next month, WriMos~! :)

Eeee! I was hoping to find other people on here who do NaNoWriMo!  My friend got me into it a while ago and I couldn't be happier! Good luck with camp nano :D

Ack! Stop it! NaNoWrimo is reason #406 that I need a Daddy. Every year for the last ten I've lost. I so fail at buckling down and getting it done. Best I've ever done was maybe 12,000 words.  :unsure:
