I strongly recommend it...http://www.nanowrimo.org, for the uninitiated.
It's a huge boost to your self esteem. Not that a guy who proclaims himself the Pope needs a huge boost to self-esteem, or that I've actually received mine yet, since here we are, with two months go go towards Nano 2007, and I still haven't finished the first draft of my Nano 2006.
Stupid biting off more than you can chew philosophy.
Why can't I just slack off like a normal person?
And what are the life-changing issues, if you care to share?

Yes, I set myself a goal of 70,000 words for the year, and I am trying to discipline myself to write a little every day, even if it doesn't make any sense or doesn't relate immediately to what I am writing at the moment. I'll put it together somehow. The main thing for me, is get it on paper - or CD, or whatever storage medium I want to use for it. :)
Basically, I'm sort interested to see if I can sustain a collage of these ideas for 50,000 words or longer (Chapter Seven: The Secret Monthly Annals of the Alternate Future History). I'm not hoping to publish it seriously, unless one or more of the Congregation are literary agents/have literary agent friends who think it has potential. It could wind up as a horrible re-writing of "The Areas Of My Expertise."
Hopefully it will provide only a minor diversion while I edit the first draft of the first novel and ship it off to literary agents across the fair land.
