SOOP and Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo* begins April 1! Get out your Moleskine and start jotting down some notes so that at 12:01 AM on April 1 you can begin spewing out words! (I probably just committed high treason against those who prefer outlining by not suggesting that it’s necessary.) As you both prepare for Camp NaNoWriMo and participate in it, we at SOOP would like to help campers and point out to our book idea writers that Camp NaNoWriMo can help them!

SOOP can help campers in a few different ways.NaNoWriMo

First, we’ll be making our blog available to campers to post about their Camp NaNoWriMo experiences and their book, which is obviously a great way to connect with fellow writers and to promote oneself.

Second, we’re always open to receiving new book ideas! If you think about it, by posting a book idea with us, you’re committing to finishing it at some point. As you get more and more votes and more and more people interested in your book and waiting to buy it, you are cranking up the pressure on yourself to actually finish it in a timely manner. A lot of writers need that motivation!

Third, our blog archives is full of useful tips for authors in the areas of Production, Pitch, and Platform. Who doesn’t love learning more about the writing craft?

Camp NaNoWriMo can help our book idea writers in a variety of ways.

  • First, you set the goal to get a huge amount of your book written in a month. Such a goal can be great if the task of procuring votes has distracted you from the actual writing of your book.
  • Second, Camp NaNoWriMo is a fantastic way to meet other authors who have useful tips and tricks to share. You’ll be surprised at what you can learn simply by looking through their forums.
  • Third, you will also be able to meet many, many writers who may be willing to support you and your book idea with a vote. You can’t be a good author without being a dedicated reader, so there’s a good chance that the authors who do vote for your book will be more than happy to later purchase your book.

As Camp NaNoWriMo gets closer, begin planning your new novel or planning to make great progress or finish your current novel! Whilst doing so, be sure to plan to use the various tools SOOP has available to authors to make the month of April even better! And for our book idea writers, check out Camp NaNoWriMo if you aren’t already planning on participating in it and use its tools to improve in the areas of Platform, Pitch, and Promotion!
