National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.
Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It's all about quantity, not quality.

I've been working on my book for nearly three years, editing the hell out of it along the way and taking breaks now and again to reorganize my thoughts. Sometimes the breaks lasted months when other things got in the way, but I'm finally only two (or so) chapters away from finishing. Wish I'd had Scrivener the whole time...
Could I bang out 175 pages in a month? I'd say almost undoubtedly. Would they be coherent, and would anyone want to read it when I was finished? That's probably another story altogether.
