What are we doing for National Novel Writing Month this year?

I'm entering. It'll be good to try something new. Never tried to write a whole novel in a month.

Are there any special plans for NaNoWriMo 2014?

I guess this is as good a place as any to point this out: There's an extended trial of Scrivener available, meant just for NaNoWriMo. Anyone who hasn't tried this yet, here's a great chance to test-...

Are there any special plans for NaNoWriMo 2014?

It has been said in the comments and I think it bears repeating in an answer that NaNo has its own set of forums and Q/A. There is a lot of internal support for NaNoWriters on their site. I don't ...
