First off, thanks to everybody who responded to my first call for Camp Nanowrimo writers for me to spotlight in the April A-Z challenge this year. I’ve already got lots of really cool interviews back.
But in going over my notes last night, I realized that I’m still missing anybody to include for the following letters:
So if you’re going to be doing Camp Nanowrimo in April, and have a name, username, book, or blog starting with any of these letters, please leave a comment or gmail me at chriskelworth . Or if you know somebody who you think would be perfect for one of these spotlights, tell them to check out my blog! 😉

I know we’re not even into March yet, but I’m already looking ahead to April for a few things…
- I’ve signed up for the A-Z blogging challenge, for the third time.
- For the first time in six years or so, I won’t be writing a script in April for Script Frenzy 😦
- And, for the first time EVER, Camp Nanowrimo is running an April session full of novelling AND script-writing goodness!
Putting the three of them together; I had a great time spotlighting some of the features of Script Frenzy last year for the A to Z challenge, so this year I’m going to make Camp Nano my topic. But I’m going to change it up a little, and I’m not going to fill up my alphabet with topics like C for Cabinmates or R for Rebel. Instead, I’d like to make as many posts as possible about my fellow campers! (It’s been a while since I’ve done a spotlight series, after all.)
So, if you’re going to be doing Camp Nano in April this year, and you’d like to volunteer for an interview or just to have me mention something about you during April, leave a comment here or contact me at chriskelworth at gmail dot com. I’ll try to slot you in based on your name, your username, or your novel title.

Hi, and welcome to the Kelworth Files 2012 A to Z series. This year, I’m focusing on another creative April event with my theme for the A to Z challenge – I’m spotlighting Script Frenzy, the crazy script writing challenge where anybody can write a 100-page script in thirty days!
As long as I keep it up to date, you can find all the entries here.
So, first I’d like to tell you about the Adoption Society. Writing a script in a month, especially for the first time, and there often comes a time when you need a somewhat random idea to help your muse out and send your script in a new direction. On the other hand, sometimes you’ve got an idea that doesn’t really fit your script, so you need to help it find a good home or it could ruin everything.
Thus we have the Adoption Society, a crazy world-wide swap meet of script ideas and notions. Whether you need a one-line joke or a title, or you need to give away a secret society or a mythological creature, the Adoption Society is the place for you.
It can also be an amazing place to procrastinate for a few months during April, just window-shopping among all of the different adoptable threads and seeing what’s available. Who knows, maybe you’ll love that crazy gadget so much that you’ll have to tell the characters in your script, “It followed me home – can we keep it?”
What’s my favorite part of the Adoption Society? Probably the crazy storyline notions in “Adopt a Plot.”
If you’re a Frenzier, what’s your favorite thing about the Adoption Society? If not – what would you be looking to adopt right now? What could you give up for adoption?
