I joined nanowrimo this year. Does anyone have any advice?

I've seen some people mention on the forums that they were going to finish a novel they started last year. They didn't mention not counting words already written.

While you can’t continue an old work, you can set aside anything you’ve previously written, and start over completely from scratch, at word 1, on November 1! You can reuse characters, ideas, even settings. Sequels are fine!
I'm joining too. I don't really care if I win or lose. To me, it's all about personal goals. If I could break 10,000 words, I'd be happy as a clam.
Of course, I'm shooting for the full 50k though.
I have failed for 3 years, this year has to be my year :O
