I've committed. I'm going to get this fourth and final book in my series done. Camp Nano will help me get it started, and maybe even finish it. I didn't finish the 50K word count in November. I like the flexibility of word count for the camp. I just need the swift kick in the pants now.

Who else is with me? Maybe not the swift kick in the pants, but the Camp NANO participation. Anyone else going to Nano Writer's Camp this year? :D

By the way, if you want to check it out, here's the link. http://campnanowrimo.org/

I signed up for both camps last year, and I've signed up for April this year.
I would be writing anyway, need to get this book done, but I'm hoping camp will give me an extra push.  ;D

I've signed up, planning to write book 6 in one of my series.  I'm much better at keeping my pace writing year round since finding these boards, but Nano and Camp Nano have become a personal tradition for me.

Yes, this will be my second year! I think I actually enjoy Camp more than regular NaNo - even though half the people in my cabin stopped writing after a few days, it was really interesting to see what everyone was working on.

Yup, me too! Hoping to get a good way into the draft of my third novel. And make progress on my edits, too (although not a camp-specific goal).

I signed up.

I tried to 'pants' my way through NaNoWriMo a couple years ago, and got stuck around 6,000 - 7,000 words. This time, I'm using a story that's been floating around in my mind for a couple years, and I'm going to outline it.

I'm doing it. Like a lot of other people, I have a project that I need to get done by the end of April. I've actually already started it, but I like the flexibility of only having to count the words I write in April rather than having to start from scratch on Day One.

I just signed up a few minutes ago. I really want to get my horror novel done (and the second volume of Korean Americans if I'm fast enough for that). Hopefully, I'll be able to finish it by the end of April. Camp Nano better be worth it. 8)

Oo oo Can I join your cabin Elizabeth? :D
I think I'm going into a cabin that's ran by another writing site I'm part of, or I totally would! If that doesn't end up working out I'd love to share a cabin. XD

Part of me is tempted to set a high goal for April but then I look at everything I have going on that month and just cringe (some big school deadlines, and a lot of stress ramping up to May, which threatens to be busy and full of socialness and travel).

If it wasn't for NaNo I wouldn't be here. NaNo is what gave me the kick I needed to try writing original novel length fiction. When I made up my schedule I was careful that November was always clear for first drafts. It's important to me that even though I'm writing all the time now, November is traditional.

Anyway, this April is also first draft time. I'll be writing book two of my series, as well as a collection of short stories. The short stories are set in the series world, some missing moments, some backstory, some alternate point of view, I hope it'll be fun.

Camp NaNo, two years ago, in the midst of pneumonia, is what got me writing again. Fanfic, but it got me writing again. (I've been back to original the last six months or so.)

Since then I try to do the Camps and the main NaNo, if I can. Doesn't always work around my school schedule, but I try.
