Even though I'm quite a bit busy with work, family, and my upcoming vacation at the end of November, I decided to do NaNoWriMo this year. I didn't last year because Chris died on November 7th. Since I knew he was sick, I decided against doing NaNo. November was very difficult for me. The year before, I didn't do it because I did Camp NaNo in July and I had finished another book in May.
But I decided to try this year. NaNoWriMo was what taught me to sit down and take the time to write. Leave the editing for later.
I will be "cheating" a little bit by starting before November 1st. I'm going on a cruise with my family, leaving for Miami on November 22nd at 6 am. I don't get back until December 1st. I won't be bringing my computer or really be able to write during that time. It's my goal to write a 50,000 word novel by November 21st. Yikes.
YA Urban Fantasy
Sixteen-year-old Kaela was born with wings; wings she has never flown with. It's forbidden. Kaela was born in captivity, surrounded by white walls and given a number instead of a name. The only part of her past she knows is bound to her. She befriends another girl in the center and when Amie is killed, Kaela can take no more. With the help of the mysterious boy, Trent, Kaela escapes and begins to discover the lies of the center have kept her from the truth of her past and will change the course of her future.
That's just a rough idea. Really, I'm a pant-ser. I'm not sure where this is going, but I'm willing to try.

Are you doing NaNoWriMo 2012? Are you a pant-ser or a plotter?
