I heard about Nanowrimo a few years ago and was sure it was something that only those without real jobs or families did. On Oct 27, 2008 I found the website and signed up before my rational mind could object. One of my many novel ideas jumped to the front and off we went. At 12:39 pm (AZ time) on the 29th, I finished, uploaded and won Nanowrimo 2008. Hooked for life is probably an apt description of me now. I'm even excited about editing it, definitely a 180 degree shift from one month ago.
