NaNoWriMo: June 2017: Episode VI: The Return of Camp NaNoWriMo

Bring the heat this summer with your July writing project!

National Novel Writing Month
Camp NaNoWriMo

Some things are so good that you can’t have just one. Here at NaNo HQ, that’s how we feel about Camp NaNoWriMo! If you weren’t able to participate in April’s Camp session (or if you did participate and got hooked on those campfire writing sessions), these long summer days are perfect for both early-bird and night-owl writers.

At Camp, you can tackle any project, set your own writing or editing goals, and chat with fellow Wrimos in the forums to find future cabin mates. Plus, get a special social media badge when you begin writing your project this July.

Come write with the Storysquatch, Darewolves, and Plot Bunnies to make your next writing project as real as your imagination.

The NaNo Three

Every month, we share three of our favorite links from the NaNo-sphere—whether they’re blog articles or awesome pep talks. Check it out.

Wrimo Spotlight

“Go for something you have never tried before, or that you have tried before and failed, and work harder than you ever thought possible. Working to make your dreams a reality, even if they do not come to fruition this time, can give you the confidence to try again. And again. And again. It’s about perseverance.”

—Jennifer Joe, NaNoWriMo Come Write In librarian
