Okay, I’ll confess: I have never been tempted to join in NaNoWriMo. That doesn’t mean I don’t admire the heck out of people who can do it.

But some writers prefer to spend more time writing the first draft and less time fixing it later, so NaNoWriMo doesn’t work for them.
Others don’t respond well to the “boot camp” mentality needed to participate in NaNoWriMo. It can even do them physical or psychological harm.
