I guess I could get behind NaNoWriMo more if it was just about encouraging new writers to get their projects written. I'm not a big fan because I don't like the fact that it gives some people the impression that the typical novel is written in a month. (I used to tutor a creative writing diploma program so do not tell me that people are not that misled by NaNoWriMo. I know first-hand that some are.)
However, it may be the motivation some people need to get to work. If it provides motivation for you, great.
Until you've written it, all you have are ideas.
And let's face it - even the guy grunting and rubbing his hairy belly on the couch as he watches football who's thinking about getting up for another beer has an idea.
Time to get writing. For me, not for NaNoWriMo, but because it's what I do to pay my bills every day. Work beckons.
