Sara Z. said on her blog, stories of a girl, "Speaking of which, if you have often said to yourself, "One day I will write a novel," now is your chance. November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). If I can do it, you can do it!"

Simply put, the goal is to write one 50,000 word (175 page) novel in a month, starting November 1 and ending midnight November 30.
Is it cheating that I have an idea, plot and main character in my head already? And that this is the nudge to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) in a serious way?
