For those that don't know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It takes place annually in November, except for Camp NaNo which takes place in the months of April and July. The idea is to write 50,000 words in a span of 30 days. Camp NaNo however allows you to set a target for yourself, not necessarily 50,000 words, but the objective is the same - to reach that number by the end of the month.
I've attempted NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo three times -- so far I haven't achieved my target, though I came close last november. I managed to complete 39,000 words out of 50,000 and that, for me, is a huge achievement since I tend to procrastinate a lot.
I intend to participate this year too, starting with Camp NaNo next month -- only 10 days to go -- so I'm gearing up and hoping to succeed this time!
