Troubleshooting Stubborn Projects

For NaNoWriMo, make sure your project has a Viking Helmet icon next to "50,000 words": For Camp NaNoWriMo, make sure your project has a Tent icon next to the word count you set for your goal.

If you don't see an icon, and:
  1. Your goal is 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo OR the word count you selected for Camp NaNoWriMo
  2. Your start date is November 1, and your end date is November 30 for NaNoWriMo OR your start date is April 1st , and your end date is April 30 for April Camp NaNoWriMo OR your start date is July1st , and your end date is July 31 for July Camp NaNoWriMo
If you cannot edit your goal, please email customer service.

How to Win When Creating a New Goal or if the Event is Over

You can still do this by backdating a progress update in your goal statistics page.

Click the Add a New Update button to add a new progress update. (You can do this to fix your stats or streaks, too!)


Make sure you include a full timestamp, with AM or PM (the actual times don’t matter, they just have to exist) or it will default to the current day.

After you have saved the word counts and met or surpassed your word count to win, you will receive a notification and can follow the instructions above!
