For those of you who don't already know, Nanowrimo, that is National Novel Writing Month, is an annual challenge to write 50,000 words of fiction in one 30 day month. Originally only in November, the Camp Nanowrimo program has spread the event to June and August as well. To give the participants a little more motivation, Angrykittykj came up with the great idea of having badges for the participants in Camp Nanowrimo to earn through achievements in writing and participation in the Nanowrimo community. This site is to serve as a place for anyone who would like to earn these badges to view the current list, get images of the badges they've earned, share with everyone when they have earned one, and get any questions or ideas they might have about the badges answered. I hope you enjoy. :)

On these pages you will find details and rules for what exactly needs to be done in order to earn each of the badges developed and compiled by the lovely people on the Nanowrimo forums, but to use a famous quote, they're more like guidelines than actual rules. They are for people who like to know exactly what is needed and when, people like me who like to have rules to follow for things like this. If this is not you, then don't worry about them. Like the actual Nanowrimo event, these badges are a matter of personal accomplishment, and if you do not need to follow the rules I typed up in order to feel accomplished, then feel free to interpret the badges as you see best. There are a few places in here where it is implied that not doing things according to what's written there is cheating. I can assure you that this is due entirely to laziness on my part, specifically being too lazy to think of a better way of putting it. If you feel like you deserve the badges you award yourself, then you do. The only way you can possibly cheat here is if you feel like you are cheating yourself. Just like the wonderful Office of Letters and Light, we not only accept rebels here, we encourage them. Seriously, we even have a few badges just for you guys.

Late At Night

This badge is earned by writing last thing before going to bed. It does not need to be the evening or night time, if this does not fit your schedule, but it needs to be the last thing you do before curling up to sleep. It can be earned at any time during any event, with or without any other badges. There is no word requirement.

  3. This is me, right now. I'm taking my netbook to bed and writing until I fall asleep. If I get to 1,000 words, I'll claim the Sweet Dreams badge in the morning.

    Maybe the Early in the Morning badge, too...

  8. I managed to refrain from updating my word count/checking email/any of the other things I also do on here after I wrote last night, so I finally got this one! :D

    (It's not the writing before bed thing that's hard for me: that's pretty much a daily occurance. It's the not doing other things while I'm at it that has made this a day 16 badge instead of a day 1 one. ;P )
