Creative Writing Prompts for Camp NaNoWriMo

The folks who created National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) now also offer two month-long “camps” to keep you writing all year long. Camp NaNoWriMo is an online writer’s retreat designed to help you push through any type of writing project over the course of a month.

Unlike November’s NaNoWriMo, there is no set word count so you can focus on any type of writing objective. Whether you want to dust off an old draft, work on your movie script or try out a new writing style, you’ll be surrounded by fellow writers who can encourage you to achieve your goal.

We’re already a few weeks into July’s camp, but if you’re participating in Camp NaNoWriMo or facing another type writing challenge this summer you may need a mid-month boost to help get you through. We’ve added more creative writing prompts to our Paperblanks Journal Prompts App to help inspire your creativity. As always, these are just meant to nudge you to think about your story differently – feel free to adapt these ideas to fit your story.

Check out the new cues below and be sure to download our app (links on the right sidebar of this page) for the full selection.
