I Almost Forgot About Camp NaNoWriMo


Have I ever announced a NaNo project this late?

This year has made it so hard to keep track of dates. Camp NaNoWriMo is just around the corner and I’m just now setting up my project. We start writing next Wednesday! I’m usually getting ready weeks before this point.

I’m in the process of creating my project on the NaNoWriMo site while writing this blog post. Hooray for multitasking!

No one will be surprised to hear I’m continuing my rewrite of The Dreams for Camp. I’m getting close to the end. Maybe I’ll get enough of a push during Camp NaNoWriMo to finally finish it. I’m setting a goal of 10,000 words because I never win Camp events and I want to give myself a fighting chance. It would still be a stretch for me because this year has completely killed my productivity.

Like last time Camp is happening on the main NaNoWriMo site. I thought this was a great move back in April. It streamlined things and the change from cabins to groups wasn’t drastic, but the seeing notifications about friends winning badges was a nice addition. Chatter in cabins always died off after the first few days in my experience. Even if people weren’t chatting, seeing the badges pop up told me I wasn’t the only one still writing. It also provided an opportunity to start up conversation again with a congratulations.

It looks like groups started for last Camp session are still around. This is great news. If you were already in my group I don’t need to add you again. We can just keep going.

If you’re doing Camp NaNoWriMo next month, you should add me as a buddy. There’s still space in my group too so if you’re interested in joining, let me know your NaNoWriMo username so I can sent you an invitation.

Now that I realize it’s nearly July I’m rapidly becoming excited for another month of frantic writing. I just can’t believe it crept up on me like this.
