Ah, spring time. The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and thousands of people are getting ready to embark on the maddening quest to write a LOT of words come April. That’s right, Camp NaNoWriMo is swiftly approaching and we here at the Sprint Shack are gearing up for all the fun that’s in store next month. We’re picking which projects we’ll be working on, figuring out our word count goals, and looking forward to cabin assignments.
And, of course, we’ll be doing what we do best: word sprinting.
To kick off Camp NaNo right this year, we’ll be hosting sprints on our Twitter account throughout the first day of Camp NaNo (April 1st)!
Here are the times we’ll be sprinting (we hope to add more times, but these are for sure our set sprinting times as of now):
2pm-4pm BST // 9am – 11am EDT // 6am – 8am PDT
5pm – 8pm BST // 12pm (noon) – 3pm EDT // 9am – 12pm (noon) PDT
8pm – 11pm BST // 3pm – 6pm EDT // 12pm (noon) – 3pm PDT
12am (midnight) – 1am BST // 7pm – 8pm EDT // 4pm – 5pm PDT
1am – 2am BST // 8pm – 9pm EDT // 5pm – 6pm PDT
3am – 4am BST // 10pm-11pm EDT // 7pm – 8pm PDT
4am – 6am BST // 11pm – 1am EDT // 8pm – 10pm PDT
We’ll be using the #SprintParty hashtag, so watch out for it!
Aside from the first day of Camp NaNo, we’ll also be hosting sprints throughout the entire month of April, so make sure you’re following us on Twitter!
