I'm a slow and methodical writer and could never really get into the "full steam ahead!" mindset required for NaNo, but I've been participating for the past four years. (I don't just write in November, although I have tended to make more progress thanks to all the NaNo excitement and support.) And...I'm almost done! With a fairly polished draft, at least. I'm working on the epilogue and hope to finish it by the end of the month and then spend this NaNo on revisions.

I know this isn't the "right" way to do NaNo, but there were a couple of years when I set out to do the 50,000 words in 30 days thing and never got more than a few hundred words before giving up. But I've been rolling along ever since I decided I was just going to start off slow and steady and keep on past November. I mention this in case anyone else likes the idea of NaNo but has a hard time following the rules -- do it your way, but keep writing.
