5 Ways to Use Camp NaNoWriMo as an Authorpreneur

Camp NaNoWriMo is just round the corner


Traditionally Camp NaNoWriMo is used by writers all over the world to work on their writing projects. But my mind didn’t stop thinking How can an authorpreneur get the most out of Camo NaNoWriMo? That’s why in today’s episode I talk about how we can use Camp NaNoWriMo as authorpreneurs.

Listen to the episode:

What is Camp NaNoWriMo

But let’s first talk about what is Camp NaNoWriMo for those who haven’t heard of it.

Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual writing retreat used by thousands of writers around the world to work on their writing projects. It happens twice a year – during the months of April and July and the aim is to do some work on your project. Unlike NaNoWriMo where the aim is to actually write the first draft of your novel, during Camp NaNoWriMo you can do whatever work you want to do. You can write a first draft, you can edit your novel, you can write poetry or short stories, or even work on any other project that you want.

Because of the diversity of the projects that you can work on during Camp NaNoWriMo the goals can be different. You can set your goal to be words writter, or hours, minutes, pages, even lines.

But how an authorpreneur can use Camp NaNoWriMo to start building their writing business?

Start writing a book

The first and most obvious way to use Camp NaNoWriMo is to write a book.

If you have never published and/or written a book before, this is the perfect moment to do it. After all we are writers! We have to do what we LOVE doing. And even though it’s not impossible to grow a business around your writing passion without publishing a book, it’s much easier when do have one (at least). So write your first book.

But if you have a published book you can use Camp NaNoWriMo to write another – this time an educational or self-development book. Help other writers, teach them how to write, or just encourage them and give the advice how to stay productive, motivated, or sane {*grinning}.

Create an online course

Another option to use Camp NaNo is to create an online course. You can do a course for Camp NaNoWriMo / NaNoWriMo or just a regular online course for writers teaching them what you’re good at.

The best part is that you can do this DURING Camp NaNo. You can create a project on the Camp NaNoWriMo website under the category of “Other” and set a goal to create the course during this one month.

Offer some services

If you’re a writing coach or you’re good at editing, for example, you can offer different writing services.

This is a great way to help other writers and to make some money in the meantime.

Create an online community

To be an authorpreneur doesn’t mean that everything you do has to bring money in your bank account.

Sometimes the most valuable thing is to build a community, to connect with other people.

On the Camp NaNoWriMo website you can find these cabins which are something like forums or chat rooms. But you can create your own community, your own Camp NaNo cabin. The only thing you need is a Facebook group. Create it and decide what type of writers you want to connect with.

Organize an Instagram challenge

Another great way to connect with other writers and/or readers is to organize an Instagram challenge.

Decide on the daily prompts and announce the challenge a few days earlier. Tag a few friends to help you spread the word and voila! You have gained a few more followers and gained some popularity among the writing community on Instagram.
