If you're a writer (or maybe if you know someone who is a writer, you've probably heard about something called NaNoWriMo. For the uninitiated, that stands for National Novel Writing Month, aka November, during which thousands (millions?) of writers across the globe scramble to write 50K words in a month. It's exhilarating, it's exhausting, and it's triumphant when you actually cross that 50K finish line.
This year, the folks over at NaNoWriMo are trying something new, and it's called Camp NaNoWriMo - essentially the same thing, but in the months of July and August for those who can't do a novel in November, those who can't wait for November, and those who are just gluttons for punishment.
If you want to get involved and give it a try, it's not too late - it's only the 6th of August. (I'm participating, and I haven't written a damn word yet, and I'm procrastinating right now by writing this blog post.) So click the link above and sign up!
