Can anyone tell me what is coming up soon? That’s right, it’s Camp NaNoWriMo! For those of you who do not know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. This happens annually every November where writers/writers-to-be/people who just want to have fun write 50,000 words in the 30 days of November. Some people sign up and don’t do it (like me), some people start it and don’t finish it (also like me), some people make it exactly (again, like me), and some people go way above and beyond to win (unlike me). No matter what category you would fall under in the list I just provided, all should join and participate. It’s a whole lot of fun.
So, I guess I explained NaNo, but not Camp NaNo, huh? Well, Camp NaNo is exactly the same only it’s a summer camp for NaNoers and it falls under the months of June and August. Yes, I said June. It used to be July and August, but they changed it for some reason…so let it be known that it is JUNE and August!
So, I joined in 2008 but didn’t participate, I participated and won in 2009, and in 2010 and 2011 I participated, but did not finish. I have only done one Camp NaNo and that was in August of 2011. I won that (go me!). I only did August because I never heard of Camp NaNo until the middle of July 2011. I was quite sad that I missed half of it. But I know about it this year
I will be participating in June 2012 and August 2012. Although, it is May 18 and it does start in June, so I’m only worried about the June for right now. I am a wee bit concerned because I haven’t the slightest idea of what I am going to write for it and it starts in half a month…I’ll get back to you on that.
Here are the links if anyone is interested: www.nanowrimo.org is NaNo for November and Camp NaNo for June and August is www.campnanowrimo.org. I am Fiery_Sapphire on both of those websites if anyone would like to look me up. I also have the links and my username to these websites on the Links page of this blog.
Now look to the right of this page…you may or may not have to scroll up or down…do you see that countdown? That countdown is how many days we have left to prepare for this event. As I said, I have no idea what I am going to do for it. I will have to get back to you on that and I hope that it’s soon.
If you are participating as well, leave a comment! I would love to hear your ideas and/or be cabin buddies on the site!
