A marketer for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) says Camp is “an idyllic writers retreat smack-dab in the middle of your crazy life”. One experience with NaNoWriMo teaches writers that the international event is idyllic or a retreat from anything but reality.
Intense pressure is one of the most appreciated tools of any NaNoWriMo.
Basically, Camp NaNoWriMo in April and July is a month-long competition each participating writers has with themself.
My goal this month is to write 35,000 words for a novella. The story is based on a novel I started as a teenager. You can read more about it and see my progress through the month by visiting the new Dark Fiction page.
Another way to hear about it is to join my LGBT Dark Fantasy cabin on the Camp NaNoWriMo website. Anyone looking for support and willing to share ideas with a few of us bold enough to write about magical sex slaves, sirens, and other dangerous characters is welcome to join this week. You may use my site’s Contact form to ask for invitation to the cabin.
