Tweet Chat: Meet Your April Camp Counselors!
Friday March 29, 2019, 2:00 PM PDT (Your Time Zone)
Each Camp session, we’re joined by published authors who act as “counselors” on our blog. This April, they’ll be dispensing words of wisdom, advice, and encouragement to all our NaNo Campers. Kick off the start of this new Camp season by joining a few of our Counselors for a Tweet Chat on Friday, March 29, at 2 PM Pacific Time, with the hashtag #CampNaNoAdvice. Visit our Writing Resources page for more information about your Camp Counselors.

NaNo Word Sprints
What’s a word sprint? It’s a timed writing exercise to write as quickly as you can for a set amount of time. You can take on a suggested prompt or dare, too! Why take part in a word sprint?To rev up your writing momentum, and get you sprinting past your inner editor.
Every week of November, a published author will take over our official Twitter account, @NaNoWriMo, to answer your questions and coach you through drafting your novel. All tweets that come from our NaNo Coaches will be signed with the hashtag #NaNoCoach. If you want to make sure your question or thoughts make their way to your coach’s clipboard, please include #NaNoCoach in your tweet, too!
