Camp NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) April commences in just 5 days! A little different from the November NaNo, Camp NaNoWriMo invites all kinds of word count goals, and all kinds of writing projects.
To support you through—or rather, after—Camp NaNoWriMo April, I am giving away a FREE manuscript critique of a manuscript or selection of short stories worth AT LEAST $500/£400/€450 to April Campers.
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 2018? Are you going to work on a novella, novel-length manuscript, or a selection of short stories? Then, yes.
What can I win?
A manuscript critique of your finished manuscript or selection of short stories.
A manuscript 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 manuscript critique is the way to go in that it is really the first step in the editing process. A manuscript critique does not include any copy or line editing.
How do I enter the giveaway?
- Sign up to my email list. Please make sure to check your spam folder if you don’t receive a confirmation email.
- Tell me a little something about your manuscript by leaving a comment on this post or emailing me at email@example.com. If you skip this step, I’ll have to assume you’re just a regular sign-up.
If you want your name added to the draw more than once, please:
For every like or follow, your name will be added to the draw.
Already following me everywhere? Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org that you want to be included in the draw with a little reminder of where you’re following me already.
Until when can I sign up for the giveaway?
You can sign up until the 30th of April, midnight GMT.
I didn’t make 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 finish 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 the magical NaNoWriMo 50K words?
There’s a reason the giveaway is worth AT LEAST $500/£400/€450 😉 The bigger your project, the higher the value.
When will I hear whether I’ve won?
I will draw a winner on the first of May and announce who’s the lucky one through my newsletter.
Any other questions?
Drop me a line at email@example.com and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. In the meantime, good luck camping!
