JANO 2021

 

About JANO

During January, 2010, Sleuths’ Ink held it’s first-ever JANO challenge. Modeled after the popular National Novel Writing Month in November, JANO begins in, you guessed it, January.
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 2021!


Rules: There may be no actual writing on your JANO novel until January 1, but you may plot your novel, create character sketches, and do research before January 1. On that date, begin writing like mad (no editing) the entire month in order to reach the 50,000-word goal.   

YOU MUST BE A PAID MEMBER OF SLEUTHS' INK BY FEBRUARY 6TH TO QUALIFY FOR PRIZES.

NON-MEMBERS MAY PARTICIPATE FOR A $10 FEE, AND MAY ALSO ATTEND THE PARTY AND BE ELIGIBLE FOR PRIZES.
