If you are writer who’s even mildly active on social media then you might have heard about the NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. But what about Camp NaNoWriMo?
Camp NaNoWriMo is a spinoff of NaNoWriMo which you can customise as per your own needs. In their own words:
Camp NaNoWriMo is your next, great writing adventure! Every April and July, take the chance to do something new with your writing… with all the flexibility that Camp offers. You can set your own writing goal (you’re not locked into 50,000 words!), and work on any writing project, novel or not.Camp NaNo Website
It has no restrictions of word count so you can look at it as a flexible NaNoWriMo.
It is good for all writers, especially for those who are new to this format of writing because of the flexibility it offers. You can writer either 10K words of 100K – there is absolutely no word count limit (minimum or maximum.)
You can sign up for Camp Nano here and join the most awesome writing community on the planet. This would be my 8th year, and I will be working on the proof of Sinister Town for this April’s Camp Nano.
So what are you waiting for? Going Camp NaNoWriMo today and get started on your writing project. You can even join writing groups there or create one of your own.
Are you participating in Camp NaNoWriMo April 2021?

I have taken part in, and won, Camp NaNoWriMo every year since 2014 and have worked on many different projects, sometimes an existing novel and sometimes something totally new or revising an existing project. I really like the flexibility of Camp that you don’t get with regular NaNoWriMo (although I have done, and won, that since 2013) and find both enjoyable. I recently finished a short story for this month’s session of Camp so I am done for this year. I decided to tackle a new genre, paranormal romance. If I don’t have ideas for a novel, I do a short story and that system works well for me. I do sometimes take advantage of the prizes for the sessions although I do wish they would bring back the free printed proof offer they had in 2013/15 because that meant I only paid shipping on my book. I am glad I took advantage of that offer so I now have proofs of some of my novels but still have yet to publish anything. I used the sessions to tackle a new genre and improve my writing craft which is so much better since 2013. Even my 2013 attempt wasn’t bad.

Hey, Katherine, thanks a lot for reading this article! And wow… You’ve been writing and participating in NaNoWriMo for so long. I agree about the writing improving over time and about Camp being very flexible. Looking forward to knowing more about your writing journey!
