Calling all budding authors for the virtual writer’s retreat known as Camp NaNoWriMo! This July at Camp NaNoWriMo sign up for an experience like no other. Head out in search for inspiration in a virtual cabin. Join your friends to form a writers’ group online, or have Camp NaNoWriMo match you up with a crew of like-minded cabin mates for the event. Read stories by the “campfire” for some fun and fresh ideas. So pack your backpack and head down to the West Irving Library this month anytime during normal business hours for a quiet place to work, free wi-fi and public computers.
Camp NaNoWriMo is an off-shoot from the people behind National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), but is more relaxed. Unlike NaNoWriMo, which is a race to get in a 50,000 word novel during the month of November, projects for Camp NanoWriMo are more fluid to allow for the most creativity during the hectic summer season. There are no requirements on which type of project to work on. As they say “first drafts, revisions, short story collections, poems, or scripts” are all allowed. The word count limits are also start much smaller. Thirty words is the minimum.
Have a writing project you’d like to complete? Camp NaNoWriMo takes the best parts of the camping experience and makes the writing process so much fun you’ll wish you didn’t have to go home. That is, until you realize you never left in the first place. Visit https://campnanowrimo.org/sign_in to get started.
