* Did you just write 50,000 words in 30 days (and not just the same four-letter word 50,000 times)? Is this the first time you've ever written so much? Be honest - did you think you could do it? If the answer is yes, you've just completed a daunting task with something to show for it. This is what a CMOA feels like.

* The list of published authors who started their novels from NaNoWriMo is a nice way to shut up the people who say that this is just a writing stunt or a hobby.

* Admit it, when you get down to it, actually finishing the novel is a [=CMoA=] all by itself.
** Just getting to 50k words certainly feels more like a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, especially for first timers.
*** Definitely.
* Plenty of people have had their NaNoWriMo novels published. Presumably, they spent the other 11 months editing.

* How about when you do NaNoWriMo and your characters refuse to behave themselves? Case in point: in '07, this troper's first year doing it, her main character decided to just flat-out DIE halfway through the month. And she still managed to win.
* This troper updated her counter on November 30st 10 p.m. - not crowning yet, I know. Crowning was that the Na No counter stole me 4000 words. (I am NOT making this up. OO's counting is for some reason different than the Na No one... ) This was followed by 2 hours non-stop writing (producing 4900 words).
