1. I'm going to Camp NaNoWriMo!


I'm going to camp this summer!! I've never been to camp before and I'm sooo excited! I wouldn't have known about it had Katharine Swan not left a comment about it. Thank you, Katharine!

On August 1, I'm going to Camp NaNoWriMo. There's also a June 1st camp, but it doesn't work with my writing schedule. So August it is! It looks like so much fun--writing 50,000 words in a month with other "campers." Just looking at the site puts me in a summery mood. I'm sooo insanely excited! I think I'll get marshmallows, Hershey bars, and other camp-like stuff and turn my living room into a cabin. Oooh! A sleeping bag!

I can't wait to see what "cabin" I'm assigned. Friend me (jessicab_87) if you haven't already on the NaNoWriMo site. Thank you to everyone at the Office of Letters and Light for ALL of the hard work you do. It's inspiring beyond words and I would not be where I am today without NaNoWriMo.

Anyone else up for going to camp with me? Or starting camp June 1st?

Any of you guys ever been to a real camp? What was it like? Did you love it? Hate it? Get eaten by mosquitoes? What did you take to camp? Srsly, help me out here to make my at-home camping experience as authentic as possible. :) Tell, tell!
