Over the next few months this forum will become the NaNoWriMo 2008 forum and will again be flourishing with activity. Last year during the event and even post event, I found several websites that stated they hated NaNoWriMo while there was a ton that adored it. I've only officially participated in one NaNoWriMo (won) yet I've seen others who've done it for years. Personally I enjoyed NaNoWriMo and the comradery it encites. Is the finished "novel" publishable after a month? Probably not but I do see it as a potential stepping stone for new authors. I'm curious to know what others think of NaNoWriMo. Do you hate it? Do you love it? Why?
