November means NaNoWriMo

For thousands of people, October has a seasonal significance beyond being the peak fall color season. It's the time of year when you prepare for NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month in November. Participants eagerly await the opening of the forums on the NaNoWriMo website in late September or early October to reaquaint themselves with writing buddies from previous years and to greet the NaNoWriMo newbies.

This year, I'm a NaNoWriMo newbie. I considered participating the previous two years, but this is the first time I've actually committed myself far enough to sign up on the site and start posting to the forums. If I enjoy the event as much as others have, I expect to make this part of my annual observance of fall.
