Camp Nanowrimo or write a novel in a month

It’s STILL not too late to join up Camp Nanowrimo. The Office of Letters and Light are an American organisation who teach young people to write. They also run camps through out the year where writers gather electronically from all over the world and attempt to write a novel in a month. I’ve done a few of them now and I’ve found they are great for keeping focused. By joining in I actually have a novel I was able to pitch to two publishers at The Winchester Writers Festival. Now I’m joining in again so I can edit said novel and send it back again. I particularly like the stats that show you how many words you need to write in a month. It forms the good habit of writing every day and is almost as addictive as writing blog posts. So follow the link and get writing!
