I didn't plan to do July's session of CAMP NaNoWriMo this year but for the well known, main event in November, who are my fellow forum users that will be participating this year? Is this your first year or not? How do you feel about the contest this year? Good luck to everyone! :D

It won't be my first year. I participated two years ago and "won," so I'm trying again this year. Last year was a nightmare and there was a lot of family health crises, so I'm hoping everyone stays healthy and I'll be able to get some writing done this year.

What about you? Will it be your first time? What is your preferred writing genre? Do you use Scrivener for your writing?

I keep meaning to (both November and July). It never seems to work out. Really want to do November this year.

I meant to take part in July but have been having computer problems. Hope to take part in November.

I have a big project that *should* be terminated by November. If it is not, NaNoWriMo will be the month for the final spurt. If I'm free to just let go, I'll use NaNoWriMo to hammer out a rough first draft, testing new ideas.

I'm *hoping* to get back to it. The last few years were wiped out by unexpected family deaths and health crises, which I sincerely hope have now gone by.

I'm in (if I can figure out a story idea in time). Looking forward to being able to do some of the writing on my iPad Pro :)

I'm pondering de-pantsifying myself, and spending the rest of the month on an outline. Outlines are all well and good, but I've yet to finish one. Sigh. Maybe Scapple will come to the rescue.

I'm in! I was a participant in '14 and '15 but I never made 50000 words as I wanted to. I hope this year I will finally do it. Also, I'm new here, so nice to meet you guys! :D

I'm considering writing two screenplays (25K words each) instead of a 50K novel. A sci-fi and a comedy, on alternating days. Would that be ... wrong?
