I've been working on my story at Nanowrimo. It's a blast even though at this point it's a lame rambling sort of tale. I'm up to nearly 10.000 words so far. There are fun aspects to the event of National November Write a Novel in a Month. YOu are supposed to write the story without editing it at first and then go back later to deal with the editing. I like that aspect. I would be tempted to edit it to death at the beginning and kill all the creativity. There are writers of all ages and from all over the world taking part in this. The forums are interesting too.
