Camp is not complete without letters from home, and a vacation isn't complete without postcards. While we are at Camp NaNoWriMo, I will be on vacation. If you would like to receive a personalized postcard, NaNoMail or email (darfinkle at gmail) me your address.
6 months agoCamp NaNoWriMo is right around the corner--April 1-30. While there are no official region events, there may be informal campfires (a.k.a. write-ins) hosted by dedicated and intrepid campers. Otherwise, camp is strictly an online event where you may choose to join a cabin with eleven other campers. No, you don't have to write 50,000 words! During camp, you can set your own word count goal. Visit campnanowrimo.org to sign up. Hurry! Cabin assignments begin March 25.
10 months agoToday marks the end of NaNoWriMo 2013. Remember to upload your novel into the official Word Count Validator. If you have problems, send me an email at email@example.com.
Whether you reached 50K or not, I want you to take a look at what you have accomplished. If you reached that big, hairy goal of 50K in 30 days, congratulations! If you didn't quite get there, don't give up. You started a journey that may take longer. I congratulate you for giving it a go when the odds may not have been in your favor. I am proud of you!
