That isn't true. I remember doing it one year, but I barely forced out three hundred words or so. Last night, I managed to get 3700 or so. As of right now, I'm sitting on 5751 words. I'm feeling pretty good about NaNo this year.
I'm also doing NaNo in addition to LJ Idol, and there's voting going on right now for intro posts, but I won't start panicking about that until the first real topic is posted. NOVEMBER IS FOR WRITING. That is all.
