NaNoWriMo isn't for everybody -- Maggie Stiefvater has written a Dear John letter to the idea, because this way of writing isn't her way of writing. Nothing wrong with that. Whatever method brings you to an awesome book is the method you should use.
This time for NaNoWriMo, I'm cheating. I've written a 152-page rural fantasy about kids turning into animals, but for some reason the plot still hasn't bothered to show up. So I'll hide those finished pages and write the story again from the beginning. Maybe this time around I'll tie all these threads together and get an idea for a ending with explosions. Wouldn't that be nice!
If you're up for the crazy, go to the NaNoWriMo main page and sign up. Good luck!
P.S. Debbie Ridpath Ohi has a link to a NaNoWriMo musical at her website ... because she can.
