I don't think I'll be doing it this year.

I've never actually done this before. What do I need to know?

You write ~1,667 words a day (minimum) for 30 days, which I think is something like 3-5 pages.

Quantity, not quality! The goal is to produce a first draft of a fifty-thousand word novel. Some people go on to edit and rewrite, but most people are just satisfied with the creative accomplishment of having written a book.

It's challenging in a very fun way, and entirely open-ended. The NaNo writing community is very friendly, very inclusive, and very supportive.
