I have mainly three reasons:
- Being a stay-at-home Mom, I have lots of difficulty with set writing schedules; however, I found that setting an overall monthly goal works better for me, and CampNaNoWriMo fits that agenda perfectly.
- I discovered writing serial fiction was much more enjoyable than writing novels (I can explain my reasons in another post if you’re interested-just let me know! 🙂 ). A current serial I began back in December stalled due to busyness that goes with family-life. I’m looking to Camp to help jump-start it. I’ve set a word-count goal for the month at 10,000 which should give me the spark I need.
- Community. I crave connection with other writers, and Camp gives it to me. Each participant is assigned to a cabin with other fellow Campers where we announce our goals; from there, our cabin mates encourage and support one another as we each try to achieve those goals.
What about you? Are you participating in any of these mentioned above?
