Camp NaNoWriMo

Who’s with me?? 🙂

Don’t forget to pack your flashlight and toilet paper*.

*Not for the outhouse. I plan on TP-ing at least 5 other cabins. You know you wanna do it, too.

P.S., I didn’t write the below–it’s the email they sent me, so you can sign up, too!

This July, grab your gear, kick your inner-editor to the curb, and venture out into the wilds of your imagination. It’s time to track down your wandering muse.

Whether you’re a seasoned Camper here to take on another challenge, or a tentative first-timer looking for a place to pitch your tent, Camp NaNoWriMo is the perfect chance to see what you’re capable of when you have the time and space to create. Ready to go? Sign in right now (you can use your NaNoWriMo username and password!).


If you’re worried the trail has gone cold, here are a few reasons to seek out your writing project with Camp this July:

Tracking the muse is always safer in a group.

Camp NaNoWriMo offers 12-person online writing groups, which we call cabins. Meet other writers by being sorted into a cabin based on your age, genre, or goals.


Already have a cadre of fellow explorers? We’ve introduced private cabins.

Lure your muse with writing projects of any stripe (or spots).

Camp NaNoWriMo is open to all writing projects. Whether you’re editing a draft or tackling a script, poetry, or novel, Camp NaNoWriMo is the place to seek out those wily words. (We hear rhyming words are best lured with Sweethearts.)

Follow your muse at your own pace.

Camp NaNoWriMo lets you set your own word-count goal, from 10,000 words up to a million. Discover your creative habitat at a pace that works for you: sensing when the winds change, when night falls, and which watering holes your inspiration tends to frequent.

Step into your creative wilds with Camp NaNoWriMo this July. Find your muse. Sign up today.

NaNoWriMo is a year-round challenge to face that blank page and find the words that belong on it. Your story is out there. Let’s find it together.

  1. I’ve been attempting NaNoWriMo in November for several years – and have yet to finish (but I have a great deal of hope for the story I started this past November).
    Last summer I tried Camp NaNo in July because I was on vacation – failed to account for the fact that ‘road trip’ = days (literally) of not writing. That fledgling story may yet develop.
    I’m doing another road trip this July BUT I’m a idiot, so I’ll sign up again for camp – this time to carve out time for my November story.
    I highly recommend it, though – it’s fun & frustrating – and our local group has even started a year round writing group. SO I’m no longer completely isolated.


  2. I don’t camp anymore. A couple of years living in a tent with 12 grouchy, smelly men cured me of that desire. But I am excited that you will be writing, get the outline done early and best of luck.

    • Killjoy. (Side note…I did not communicate well to Hubby concerning my plans to participate. Him: “Sounds fun. How long is it?”
      Me: “All month, July.”
      Him: “WHAT?!?”
      I forgot to mention it’s all virtual.)


      • You mean that he has a problem with you taking a month off from the family so that you can fulfill that intrinsic need to create something from nothing even though it will probably add zero dollars to the family budget?

        He is the killjoy, not me. He is selfish and quite a drama queen. Where do these men get off telling us that we have to be a part of the family? Oh wait, I am one of those men.

        I need to run because my wife slipped away from her post in the kitchen, where she should be cooking me some food, fetching me a cold beer and a keeping the kids quiet so I can watch some baseball. Ha ha.


  3. I have done this just about every time, and yet to meet my goal. This time i am determined!!! So glad others are doing it

  5. Just bought two big bags of TP from Costco. I’ve got a little experience TP-ing cabins and nano-ing… shoot me a message? Same username.

  6. July: the perfect time for me. First three weeks are our mid-year break.
    So, you convinced me. Now I just have to find my cabin . . .
    Maybe I’ll just pitch a tent? 🙂
