Sign up for 1/2 Nano  
You've heard of a half marathon and probably a half nelson. Maybe you've even heard of half and half, but have you ever heard of a 1/2 Nano?

No?

Well let me fill you in.

In February, starting on the first, we're going to run a 1/2 NaNo here at allyear_sprints. It's simple. In one month, 28 days (February, hello), we're going to write 25K. That averages out to exactly 893 words per day.

Not bad, right? Very doable!

We're going to run this like a retreat, a month long writing retreat, doesn't that sound wonderful? We have great plans, games, and activities for us and you all will be "bunking up" together in different retreat lodges during the month. (Don't worry, we'll assign you to a place where you fit right in.)

The cost is 100% Free, so really there's no excuse not to sign up, kick-start your writing, and make February a month of learning how to write better and reach your goals.

So! Simply fill out the following application, post it in the comments below by January 28th and we'll throw you into a lodge.

The fun starts right here on the First, so really you don't want to miss it.

I put down 50K even though that was the goal this month and I'm just under 15K. But if I was shooting for 25K this month I'd be at 5K so I'll stick with 50K.

Hi.
Sorry I missed the deadline, but I hope to do the 1/2 Nano in February, and will be cheering you on if this thread stays open.

Good luck!
