Participants are assigned into cabins (max of 12 writers). Cabin assignments can either be random, by interest (genre, word count goal, age) or you can create/join a private cabin. (So we could create our own cabin with 1_million_words folks for example).
You set your own (individual) writing goal - doesn't have to be 50K or a novel- Drop down categories for your writing project include: Novel, Nonfiction, Poetry, Revision, Script, Short Stories or Other. Goals can be by word count, lines, hours or pages.
How: You use your nanowrimo.org username/password to sign into campnanowrimo.org
Both are non-profit sites. There are no fees or required donations. You have to create a profile/login before you can join/be invited to a cabin.
When: April 1 (no foolin' :-) - April 30
