Camp NaNoWriMo

Last week I got an email about Camp NaNoWriMo. Unfortunately it is scheduled for April - and I want to do the Blogging from A to Z Challenge during the month of April. So Camp may just have to be deferred until July. It is not possible to do both.

I attempted NaNoWriMo a few years ago, and again this year. The first time I was also doing my post-grad and simply didn't have the time in the day. Now that I am working full time I attempted it again and found that I could usually get up early to put in a couple of hours and started off quite well. Unfortunately the momentum wasn't sustainable and things to do when buying a house started to interfere and my novel just never got finished.

So another attempt might just have to go in the diary for July. Is anyone else attending camp this year?


  1. Can you explain this camp thing? I know about the novel writing that happens in November,so what goes on in April and July? I won't be doing it in April since I am doing the A to Z challenge.

  2. I have the same issue - already doing A to Z Challenge.

    I have not done Camp before but as I understand it is similar to the regular November event and the target is to write 50,000 words in a month but you are grouped in a "cabin" of 4-6 writers who you can message etc and you share with and support through the month

  3. I'm attempting to do both, yet that's just because I'm doing online college. Also, this time you can choose your own word goal, awesome!
