This will be my fifth year doing NaNoWriMo. The first three went really well, but last year was more difficult for me. I started over twice, typed until I was aching (and going crazy) and only just managed to win.
Anyway, I should be able to finish the first draft of my current book within a few days. Which gives me about two-and-a-half months to prepare for NaNo. 🙂
