Camp NaNoWriMo

Signups for Camp NaNoWriMo are happening now - Despite the number of times I've done NaNo in November, this will be my first time participating in Camp NaNoWriMo. Maybe those who have done it before can add/correct my information :-)

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

Who's participating this year? Would you be interested in a 1_million_words private cabin? Reply to the cabin thread with your nanowrimo username and writing goal.

It looks like you'll have to create a project over at Camp NanoWriMo before the invite will go through -- here's the message I get when I go to invite:

Sorry, agdhani hasn't created a project yet


Let me know when you've gotten set up and I'll re-invite :)

Let me know when you've set up your profile. I've created the cabin - once you're set up I can send an invite.

I left the "cabin assignment" to the default. There didn't seem to be a place to say "I want this particular cabin."

Let me know if there's anything else you need from me.

thanks for doing this!

Yay!! I sent the invite - according to the faq you should see the join now

When you are invited to a private cabin, that invitation will pop-up the next time you log in, or refresh the Camp NaNoWriMo page. "Join Now" will take you to your new cabin home; "No Thanks" will delete the invitation
Mar. 5th, 2017 05:56 pm (UTC)
Yes! Let's do that. I'm in.
Mar. 5th, 2017 11:52 pm (UTC)
Let me know when you're profile is ready so I can send an invite to the cabin.

Mar. 7th, 2017 02:55 am (UTC)
Should be in there as LolaG721 - let me know if that doesn't work, but that's definitely my user name on there.
Mar. 7th, 2017 04:09 am (UTC)
You need to create project at Camp NanoWriMo before it will let me invite you

Mar. 7th, 2017 04:48 am (UTC)
Wow! Okay, done- project set up for the current round. Hopefully that worked. :)
Mar. 7th, 2017 04:52 am (UTC)
yep - you should see an invite next time you login or refresh your camp nanowrimo page

You can so do this!

You'll need to set up a project before it will let me invite you ...

I've sent the invite. You should see a join option the next time you login to Camp NaNo (or refresh the page)

*slaps forehead*
I have a reverse bang and an exchange due in early May - I think I'll see how far I can get on them in March and stick to the plan to revise for now -- It may change by April 1st though, LOL!

I joined!

I'm anxious for the reverse bang to start, but I know the artists are still doing their thing and I won't even be able to claim an art piece until April 2, but this activity will be good to get me writing and keep me on track.

I'm struggling soooooo much with motivation lately. Maybe this will get me back on track. I'd like an invite to the cabin too, please! :)
