Hello my fellow Dark Globians!
As some of you may know in the month of November every year there is a writing exercise know as Nation Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo. Basically you write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. There are prizes for those who reach the 50k mark as well as great support throughout the entire event.
But November is ages away and some of us (including me) want to get our writing on now. Last year, 2011, Camp NaNoWriMo was created. It is exactly the same as the normal NaNo event, you still have to write 50,000 words in a month, BUT it happens in June and August.
Now I’ve been talking about this event a lot on my blog because I’ve decided to enter the June Camp NaNo (probably the other ones too). I’m already working on my novel idea. And I just thought I should share the wonders of this event with everyone here on the Dark Globe. Wouldn’t want you to miss out!
You can click on the links above to go their site, sign up, everything is free. Create your profile and novel profile and when the month comes around WRITE!!!!!
This is definitely something all writers should be having a go at. It’s just a wonderful experience even if you don’t make it to 50k at least you were a part of something amazing and you got some writing done.
But wouldn’t you be absolutely stoked if you made it to the 50,000 words and became a winner?
I’m trying extra hard this year to get to my 50k goal!
Let me know if any of you plan to do Camp NaNo next month (or August or November). I’d love to form some sort of online support group to encourage each other throughout the month.
