Welcome to the New NaNo Year, everyone!

Whether this is your first NaNoWriMo or your fifth -- or your fifteenth! -- congrats on making the commitment to take your leap into one unforgettable month of writing madness.

There's no right or wrong way to win at NaNo -- other than achieving 50K words in 30 days, which is roughly 1,667 words a day. But just ask us repeat offenders and we'll tell you it's more than possible to cram in half a book in the final three days. So just have fun with it!

Basic things to know:
* Do all the pre-planning you like (outlining, characterization, choosing your writing music, etc.) but don't start writing until midnight on Nov. 1.
* You have until 11:59:59 on Nov. 30 to submit your final word count -- make sure you're signed up for the right time zone.
* Check out Google calendar of events (right below this post) for in-person write-ins taking place all November long.
* Ask all the questions you like in our forum threads, or by emailing your buddies! But please always be respectful to others.
* Have fun!
