Are you ready for Camp?

Posted by Chrissey Harrison - 23rd March 2015

The first session of Camp NaNoWriMo 2015 is just 10 days away! Writers, are you ready for camp?

Camp NaNoWriMo is run a little differently from the November challenge. Writers are invited to bring any kind of writing project they like, not just novels, and not just new projects but existing ones. If you’ve got a manuscript at the first draft stage, you work on revising and editing it; they even provide a handy conversion rate to equate editing time into a word count (1hr = 1000 words). Or maybe you fancy working on that script idea you’ve been toying with. How about a collection of poems?

Explore new writing territory this April. Get lost. Write.

Three reasons why going to camp is awesome

1. Share everything with friends in your cabin

You can choose to be assigned to a cabin with strangers or create a private one with people you already know. Either way, you get to share the whole adventure with people who share your passion and love for writing. What could be better than that?

2. Special offers and discounts for participants

Camp NaNo’s sponsors are offering up a whole bunch of cool deals you can take advantage of. For starters, you can get 20% off Scrivener which, if you don’t already use it, will change your writing life!

3. Anything you achieve is awesome!

You can set your own target from 10,000 to 999,999 words, so you can choose a realistic goal. But even if you do you fall behind on reaching your target, just keep writing and loving what you are writing. Camp is all about having fun.

What will you write?

TGE’s Chrissey Harrison will be taking part with a lofty 60,000 word goal spread across 50hrs of revision/editing , 3 short stories and 30 pieces of micro fiction. You can follow her progress on her blog Chrissey’s Great Escape.
