** Some users set a personal goal of a "Double Nano" (100,000 words in 30 days!) or [[UpToEleven more]] -- 200,000? 500,000? Yup.

** Some users set a personal goal of a "Double Nano" (100,000 words in 30 days!) or [[UpToEleven more]] -- 200,000? 500,000? Yup. So far, the absolute record is someone writing ''1,500,000'' words in November 2014, which quite literally amounts to writing 50,000 every '''day'''. It was so high, the counters on the site plain refused to show that.



** Then there's [=#50kDay=], where you write your entire novel in '''one day'''.

* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught: ...actually, no one really cares if you do, either. There is even a forum just for "Nano Rebels". In a sense, [=NaNoers=] are actively ''encouraged'' to "cheat" by artificially inflating their wordcounts--''No Plot? No Problem'', the semi-official handbook by Chris Baty, [=NaNoWriMo=]'s creator, offers several tips on how to do this.

[=NaNoWriMo=] also had a sister event called ScriptFrenzy, with a similar goal, but executed in script format. It ran in April every year from 2007, but was ultimately discontinued in 2012. The UsefulNotes/RPMChallenge is the musical equivalent to [=NaNoWriMo=], in which budding musicians write an album of 10 songs during the month of February.

Added DiffLines:

* TechnicianVersusPerformer: Nanowrimo, as an exercise, rewards the high energy and creative abandon of a "Performer" mindset, but this difference is still present in the "Planner" and "Pantser" camps. Planners [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin completely plan out their novel in advance]], and their creative energy goes into filling out their outline with vigor. Pantsers will "fly by the seat of their pants," perhaps with a couple of ideas in hand, but mainly charging forward on November 1 with no idea whatsoever of what they will create. And most Nanoers are happy to change their strategy if it helps them win or seems more fun.

Even though it is called "National" Novel Writing Month, entries are accepted from countries other than the U.S.A and in languages other than English. [[note]]It is slightly harder to complete outside North America, due to the lack of the extra hour from daylight saving time early on, although the Yankees get burned later on by losing a whole afternoon in the fourth week to [[UsefulNotes/ThanksgivingDay actually having to sit down to eat a meal with obnoxious relatives]]. It balances out, except for Canadians who get the extra hour and don't lose the fourth Thursday of the month to a holiday.[[/note]]

2012. The UsefulNotes/RPMChallenge is the musical equivalent to [=NaNoWriMo=], in which budding musicians write an album of 10 songs during the month of February.
