I have signed up again for NaNoWriMo, but I am not following the rules, so I cannot win. Instead of starting a new novel, I will be writing the ending of one that has been in process for some time. Actually, I only need about 20,000 words, but it could go up to 30,000. That makes a very workable goal each day. I like the idea of writing flat out and not revising as I go as I usually do. I will be using the challenge in the way that works for me. The essay you will reach from the link below expresses a different and very valid opinion.
