For me, NaNoWriMo serves the purpose of moving my writing forward by both allowing me to just write the junk out of the way - bits of story and hesitation which can become writer's block if left untouched - as well as allowing me to find gems and nuggets for future stories and novels. This year's NaNoNovel has all of this. There is definitely a story in it I want to tell. And, yes, it needs revision and re-visioning.
For today, on this sunny and cold frosted morning, I'm smiling. And want to say congratulations to all of us regardless of your purple or blue bar status.
