I have wrote forever. I've always loved writing. But because life got in the way I stopped for years. A few years ago I decided to try again because I love reading and it's something I have to do. But I didn't get very far, no real motivation and I've always had a hard time writing a lot of words. NaNoWriMo helped me write more words then I've ever written in my entire life (I'm sure, 125,000 words for just November Nano's alone over a 3 year period). I've always liked the idea to just sit and write and edit later, so we're a perfect fit.
