Every year since 2009 I've participated in the epic awesomeness that is NaNoWriMo (or National Novel Writing Month is you're an acronym hater). Thanks to my endless verbosity I have actually managed to cross the 50k finish line every year. While NaNo has some critics out there I'm obviously an advocate. It has irrevocably changed me as a writer and I can't possible recommend it enough.
