Participants are challenged to write a 50,000-word novel during the month of January. Join us and kick off the new year with a novel.
Two good reasons we picked January:
1) You get an extra day to write. To complete 50,000 words during January, you only need to write 1,613 words a day.
2) The holidays are over. Winter has set in. What better way to spend a long, dreary month than writing a novel?
JOIN US FOR JANO 2019!
Sleuths' Ink will hold its Ninth Annual JANO beginning January 1, 2019. Please join us and kick off the new year by writing a new novel or adding new words to a work in progress. This even is open to Sleuths' Ink members.
Rules: There may be no actual writing on your JANO novel until January 1, but you may plot your novel and create character sketches before January 1. On that date, begin writing like mad (no editing) the entire month in order to reach the 50,000-word goal.
To celebrate JANO members’ successes, Sleuths’ Ink will award three prizes:
First Person to reach 50,000
2nd Person to reach 50,000
Best first sentence.
Details are forthcoming, but prizes will be awarded at the February meeting. You must be a paid member of Sleuths' Ink by the February meeting to be eligible for prizes.
On Your Mark!
