Discover your next writing adventure.

February is wrapping up, but that doesn't mean you have to stop editing, pitching, or working on your writing project. Maybe you've finally gotten deep into the world of your novel: you're discovering more of its secrets, and you just don't want to leave. Maybe you're polishing up your book, ready to self-publish and share with the world. Or maybe you feel proud of what you've created, but ready and excited to dust off your hands and dive into something new.

Either way, the NaNoWriMo community is here to support you. In just one week, we're launching this year's Camp NaNoWriMo, where you can create a new writing project of any kind (it doesn't have to be a novel!), chat with other writers in the forums, receive daily writing advice from published authors, and discover your next writing adventure.

Accept the Camp challenge from  your dashboard starting March 1 to plan your project, and start writing April 1!
