While browsing my Facebook feed the other day, I saw a friend of mine mention Camp NaNoWriMo. Being a huge fan of NaNoWriMo, I had to go look. After all, what’s better than spending the month of June BIC HOK TAM? (that’s butt in chair, hands on keyboard, typing away madly).
Camp NaNoWriMo is just like NaNoWriMo. You write 50,000 words from June 1 to June 30. Except it’s a teensy different. You get assigned to a camp cabin where you and five other people can chat and cheer each other on. I have my cabin but I guess every one has jobs and a life or are at word 20,000 because I have talked, one person said something 3 days ago and the other just hopped on today.
Which is fine, it keeps me off the chat board and on Write or Die and yWriter where my magic happens. I have used Write or Die a lot but this is the first time I actually use yWriter5 for the actual NaNoWriMo event. I have to say, I really like it. It keeps track of my word count for each chapter and when I move to the next chapter, it totals up the word count for both chapters for me. I am totally happy about that. I actually like it more now than before. Oh and both programs are FREE! My favorite price!
I even got my friend in on the craziness! Although she is betting me by about 1,000 words. After this post, I will go and type some more!
SO, who is with me? Are you Camping June 2012? If not, I will keep you updated on the craziness!
WORD COUNT SO FAR: 3,991
