What is Camp NaNo?

I had assumed that everyone who was reading this was familiar with Camp NaNo, but it seems I was mistaken. So, I will take this time to explain what it is.

It is an online community of loony (hey, anyone who is willing to try this is loony) folks from all over the world that get together certain months of the year to write. It is an offshoot of NaNoWriMo, in which the goal is to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in one month. In fact, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month.

The camp version is a bit more lenient. You can write whatever you want and set your own goals. There is no need to write 50,000 words if you don’t want to. My goal is only 10,000. The only rule for camp is that the words have to be new, not something you have already written.

“Cabins” are made of up to 12 people from anywhere in the world. It is simply a page where these 12 people or so can get together and talk to each other and encourage each other. You might know the folks in your cabin and you might not. They can be a fun bunch or not. What you put into your cabin is what you get out of it.

Does that answer the questions? If there are any more, please put them in the comments below and I will try to answer them.
