    Nice to know agents think it's a good thing.
    Not participating this year, but I wrote my second book during NaNo 2010. (And spent months polishing it before I sent it to my publisher.)

    I participated in NaNo from 2009-2013. This year, unfortunately, I'm going to have to pass. I also completed 50,000+ words each year I participated, and my best advice is to get ahead in your word count early. Things will always crop up toward the end of November, so it's good to build up your word count earlier in the month.

    I can see why agents (and publishers too) would cringe to get manuscripts that haven't been edited, but the purpose of NaNo to get into writing is a good thing.

    After all, the speed of writing has little to do with quality. There are some people who write 50,000 words in a week. Of course, they usually write full-time.

    Good to know they like it, just not so much the fools who refuse to do anything with it before submitting lol I've never done it as it doesn't seem much of a challenge to me, after writing 120K words in 20 days lol
