2013 WRITE: Camp NaNoWriMo. National Novel Writing Month

Camp NaNoWriMo
National Novel Writing Month
-
Invited post  by June Faramore
-
It's almost Camp NaNoWriMo time again! Have a novel you want to write this Summer? Feel the 50,000 word goal of National Novel Writing Month is too high for you? Too low? Wanna be a rebel?   See: http://www.campnanowrimo.org/news/the-camp-guide-to-rebelling
-
Well, this is the event for you.
-
In the month of July, thousands and thousands are willing to join you on the path to writing your novel. Check out the excellent Camp NaNoWriMo page as a start, then join me in SL for a series of traveling Write-Ins, three days a week for the entire month of July. Whether this is your first NaNoWriMo experience, or your tenth, we're all here to help you release the kraken...erm...the novel inside your brain. 
- The traveling Write-In schedule will be starting at the Chelsea on July 10th (stupid me planned a vacation during a NaNo month):
-
Wednesdays at 2PM PDT(July 10, 17, 24, 31): We Camp out Chelsea style in my room, 303. Please bring some snacks, we're starving artists over here! 
Fridays at 2PM PDT(July 12, 19, 26): Time to have a bit of brew and relax for our end of week camp out at the Writers' Block Cafe on Book Island. Exhausted campers need to get out of their cabins sometimes.
Sundays at 2 PM PDT(July 14, 21, 28): We Camp out at Cookie's lovely Gypsy Camp by the beach for an hour of prompts, word wars, and commiseration by the sea. 
Hope to camp out with you and write in July! They even have some great offers for writerly tools from their sponsors (http://www.campnanowrimo.org/special-offers).
- P. S. Make sure you fill out your novel information before July 1st so you get assigned a cabin on the site with your fellow Camp NaNoers.
