I figured I'd jump into this thread to see why people aren't doing NaNoWriMo... I've chosen to participate for the first time this year, and it seems extremely daunting. I'm in my first semester of college, so finding time is going to be the biggest issue for me I think. I'm doing it to prove to myself that I can, in all honestly. I don't expect to do anything with whatever I write except print it up, get it bound, and save it for the memories. Is that bad? Probably. Do I care? Not one bit.
