This July, Camp NaNoWriMo challenges you to "Get Lost. Write."
So you can explore uninhibitedly and be the cartographer of imagined lands, we used our (considerable) physiography skills to create your very own Map to the Month… or, everything you’ll need to find your story over the next 31 days.
The time to commit is now!
At midnight in your time zone, start writing! After a sweat-inducing hike across the page, make your first word-count update (from the top of our site or through "My Writing Projects").
Join interns and staff for our first Virtual Write-In, an inspiration-kindling video live-stream. We’ll be online with you every Tuesday at 11 AM PDT and every Wednesday at 2 PM PDT.
Need a Camp buddy? We've asked some novel-writing veterans to take over our YouTube channel to share their hard-earned wisdom. Subscribe to our channel today!
Join our worldwide team of word-sprinters, already going strong. They’re online at all hours of the day, and ready to give you the fuel you need to keep going.
Be on the lookout for a new participant pep talk in your inbox. Your fellow writers know how to spread creative energy and pep better than anyone!
Wake up early and get ready to be… #NaNoInspired! Throughout the day on Twitter and Instagram, we’ll be talking about (and maybe singing about, too?) what inspires us.
Winning starts today! If you’ve hit your word-count goal, click "Validate your word count to win" (next to "Update" at the top of the site or in the tent on the homepage) to start the process.
Use today to announce this promise in your cabin (or on social media): "I WILL finish my Camp NaNoWriMo project by July 31. I can totally, 100% do this." (And, promise yourself some creative swag if you make it.)
You know what you are? In it to win it. Get those last words down, take a slug from your canteen, and then join us in a celebratory Virtual Write-In!
S’mores all around!
