Camp NaNoWriMo

Editor's Note: This was forwarded to me by one of PPW's NaNoWriMo participants. It might be of interest to those of you who can't make November work, or who wanted to give NaNoWriMo a spin but missed out. 



Greetings, Wrimos!
If you're holding hot coffee, I'd recommend you put it down. If you're standing, please sit.
I have potentially explosive news: we're launching Camp NaNoWriMo this summer! As in, mere months from this very moment!
Some of you may be wondering, "What is this camp you speak of? Will there be mosquitoes?"
This camp-themed version of National Novel Writing Month enables participants to write a novel in a month other than November. You bring the words and we'll meet you there with the encouragement, tracking tools, and a tent!
For everyone who has ever wanted to do NaNo multiple times a year—or for those who simply can't make a November novel work—welcome to Camp NaNoWriMo! The plot bunnies will frolic, the sun will warm your half-baked plot, and yes... there will probably be mosquitoes.
To pay for all these building materials, we're holding a summer fundraising drive starting May 25. More awesome goodies at more levels than ever before! (Two words: bumper sticker. For the first time in NaNo history!)
Stay tuned for more camp news and details about the upcoming fundraiser. In the meantime, I've still got some canoes to hollow out.
Chop chop!
