Camp NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) April commences in just 10 days! A little different from the November NaNo, Camp NaNoWriMo invites all kinds of word count goals, and all kinds of writing projects.
Is this giveaway for me?
Do you write in English or Dutch? Did you or are you going to sign up for Camp NaNoWriMo April 2017? Are you going to write or revise a novel length manuscript or an a selection of short stories? Then, yes.
What can I win?
A book critique of your manuscript/selection of short stories worth $500/£400/€450 or more, depending on the length of your project.
A book critique will get you an overall assessment of aspects including plot, characters, structure, pace, voice, audience, and setting, and the story as a whole, as well as advice on how to improve these aspects. If you want to know whether you are writing a promising story, a book critique is the way to go in that it is really the first step in the editing process. A book critique does not include any copy or line editing.
How do I enter the giveaway?
- Sign up to my mailing list. Make sure to provide both your first and last name.
- Tell me about your plans for this NaNoWriMo by leaving a comment on this post. (Don’t forget this step, or I’ll assume you are a ‘regular’ subscriber!)
Already signed up to my mailing list? Perfect, just continue with step 2.
Until when can I enter the giveaway?
You can enter until the 30th of April, midnight GMT.
I didn’t hit my goal. Am I still eligible?
No worries. Depending on your post-NaNoWriMo plans, I either wait for you to finish your project or I edit the words you did write or revise during April.
What happens if I win the drawing but I’ve quit my project?
Again, no worries. Let me know a.s.a.p. that you did so I can draw another winner.
What if my project exceeds 50K words?
The giveaway is worth at least $500/£400/€450, which is based on 50K words. If you wrote more, the giveaway is simply worth more.
When will I hear whether I’ve won?
I will draw a winner on the first of May and announce the winner via Facebook and email.
