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 2020!
Sleuths' Ink will hold its TENTH Annual JANO beginning January 1, 2020. Please join us and kick off the new year by writing a new novel or adding new words to a work in progress.
