I've wanted to forever now but I just never get around to it. I love to write and I got through more of burst of writing rather than able to push through an entire month of NaNoWriMo! I'm sure I could pull something off but I've just never done it. My friend however has done it every year although she hasn't won yet I usually end up cheering her on and help her edit what she did get after it's over ^_^ it's pretty awesome though! Good luck this year!!
I might do it this year - unfortunately, the scholastic year here is different, so our final exams run through November, making writing novels something of a distraction. If I do it, I'll only have half of November to write my 50k.
Yay! It is very possible to do in the shortened time period. A couple years back I managed it in 12 days.
This year (I might as well update), I'm trucking along with the word count goals for each day. Senior year of college and all that has me homeworking a lot, so I can't just sit down and pour out words for hours on end like I like too, unfortunately. :/
I'm not officially doing NaNoWriMo but I'm writing nonetheless and I've written almost 10,000 words together in the little ficlet's and shorts that I've been writing and actually working on a potential novel. It's difficult to manage though when I've got college and art commissions as well! Oh yeah...and fish! haha
