Congratulations to those of you who completed NaNoWriMo in November. It's no small task to complete a 50,000-word novel in a month. Our hats off to anyone who even attempted that daunting goal during a busy holiday season.
Sleuths' Ink, a mystery writers group in Springfield, Missouri created JANO two years ago. Several reasons why we decided that January is a perfect time to write a novel are listed below:
THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER!!!
YOU GET AN EXTRA DAY TO WRITE (There are 31 days in January)
YOU ONLY HAVE TO WRITE 1613 WORDS A DAY TO REACH YOUR 50,000-WORD GOAL!
WHAT ELSE ARE YOU GONNA DO DURING THE COLDEST MONTH OF THE YEAR!
YOU'LL HAVE A NOVEL READY TO EDIT FOR THOSE SPRING/SUMMER CONFERENCES THAT WILL BE SPRINGING (pun intended) UP!
For more information on the great prize categories we'll be offering, check our JANO 2012 page. We'll also be listing the sponsors as they appear.
Keep checking back for more updates on JANO 2012.
Hope you can join us.
