This post is all about quantity because, let's be honest ... if you Wrimo you're all about numbers & sprints.

April Camp Nanowrimo Calendar

Hi Wrimos!!

It's that time again ... where writers from all over the planet emerge from hibernation, take to the grocery stores' snack section & stock pile for the best writing event of the year!!!

* 3 Cheers!!!! *

There's only 1 thing better than the original Nano & that's Camp Nano: every April & July.  The biggest difference is the flexibility of the projects.  It's a time to revise your November project, beef up your blogs, complete some screenwriting or finish off your Thesis.

Feel free to leave a comment about future calendars you'd like to see for July's Camp.  (Revision, Word Trackers, Writing Prompts)
