Congratulations NaNoWriMo 2011!

At last, this crazy marathon writing experience has come to its final chapter. Was your mission accomplished? Did you scribble your 50,000th word at 11:59 p.m. last night?

Even if you didn't quite finish- be proud- you have exhibited a feat of willpower and creativity that few people will ever experience. (And don't forget, you'll always have another chance next year.)

As a big thank you to all our writers, we want to invite all our community members to participate in the epilogue to NaNoWriMo 2011: "A Novel Competition".

When: December 1st through December 8th.

Where: The comments section of this post

What to do: Submit a brief plot summary or “book jacket copy” about their novel, maximum 250 words, in this contest entry's comments.

Who wins: LJ Editors will select the top five finalists from the entries. Guest judge Mark Coker (you may remember Mark from his recent LJ interview) from Smashwords will choose one grand prize winner from the finalist pool.


1 Grand Prize winner
Amazon Kindle
Blurb.com $20 gift certificate

4 Finalists prizes
Blurb.com $20 gift certificate

(Blurb.com is a website where authors can publish hardcover or paper copies of their books.)

For some, the anticipation of this contest might feel like Waiting for Godot. For others, these words could be no more than "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing" but a chance to win some prizes. Either way, we look forward to reading your submissions! Good luck, writers!

Clear Water
She thought at 30 years-old life was easier to understand - wrong. Aria Jones sits by watching her life fall apart. Her confidence is shattered at work, dreams die before her eyes and life becomes vague. Taking a chance on her spiritual beliefs, Aria takes a long journey. Facing the past is hard; facing herself is torture. In the end, Aria must forgive and trust herself again.

Walking between two worlds, Sandelio Caro finds no peace. Born into a sacred Apache band, he has to fight to take vengeance for his ancestors in blood or use diplomacy to heal the centuries of hate. As a skinwalker, Sandelio must guard his people from destruction that resides within and outside their society.

Can Aria and Sandelio break their self-imposed chains? The answer is so near, only opening their eyes can reveal the true.
