Camp NaNoWriMo - Who's With Me?

NaNoWriMo has opened a summer camp and I am an enthusiastic registered participant.

If you are not familiar with NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month, which is held every year during the month of November. But I'll be honest, even though I participate, November is not the best time for a teacher to focus on being a writer. I find time to write during the school year (I really can't stop myself from writing down the voices in my head), but trying to get to the goal of 50,000 words in a month... that's a lot to ask for.

But August, now this is my writing month. When I learned the NaNoWriMo has opened a summer camp I signed up right away. I just hope they get more camp t-shirts in soon.

50,000 words here I come!

Will you join me at camp? Go to Camp NaNoWriMo for more details. If you do sign up, please come back and leave a comment with your username so I can find you there.


(A shout out and thank you to Hazel Mitchell for posting details about this camp on Facebook.)

  1. What a great idea! I'm a second grade teacher and I also find the summer the best time for writing. I start school mid August so that's actually a busy time for me. Beginning of the year is always so crazy. But I'll be hitting my WIP hard these next two weeks!

    1. I'm trying to forget that I start August 23. I plan make the next two and a half weeks count as four :-) Good luck to you too!

    1. Great job Jess! I'm off to a great start too. 1,264 words so far today. There would have been more if my inner editor hadn't broken out of her cell during the night. I think I've got her locked up tight now but she can be very sneaky.

  3. I wish I could! I'm knee deep in my revision at the moment--but I MAY try NaNo this year for the first time. November should be about right to start something new. Good luck!
