Countdown to NaNoWriMo begins
Another Camp NaNoWriMO begins this April. Yes, I already have my project on the board. It will be the next Zomblog book titled, Zomblog: Snoe's Journey. Of course, as any of you who have been following me for any length of time will know, I have been a regular participant in this fine program. However, what many may not realize is that the Office of Letters and Light is like the overall parent of this event. It is much more than simply having a bunch of people try to hammer out 50,000 words in a month and call it a novel. This organization has some deep involvement in the youth literacy movement.
To that end, once again, I will likely have a fundraising event coming from this blog to try and help support an organization that means a lot to anybody who takes writing seriously. After all, they are trying to keep kids interested in reading. The person that could be helped by this program may become YOUR next fan...or even better...you might become theirs.
Stay tuned as I roll out the prize wagon. Some of last year's prizes included being made into a character in the DEAD series as well as copies of some fine titles under the MDP banner. Also, I still have that NEO Word Processor that remained unclaimed. That will be offered once again. And who knows what else? Perhaps even a local prize...a round of golf with yours truly.
The possibilities are endless.
