I was practically born talking. Seriously - at three months I nearly had words out. As soon as I became relatively fluent in simple English, I began to tell stories. I also quickly picked up reading and writing, and soon I became entirely enveloped in fantasy.
My first attempts at writing were simply put, awful. But the quality of my stories didn't matter - the point was that I was writing, and I loved it. Eventually I did manage to dig out some blessed jewels from my piles of crap that laid the foundation for my epic saga. The story continues to grow and one day, one day I will write it and publish it and it will be glorious! (It takes 15+ hours to tell it verbally. It's a saga.)
I don't count the first two years I did NaNo, because I didn't officially do them. However, I am now a happy NaNo-er, and I always keep the rule to work on something completely unrelated to my saga for NaNo.
The NaNo titles I've won are (more for my own personal reference than that I think you might care):
FBPD (Fantastic Being Police Department) (I'm still not sold on this title.)
Death's Tear draft the third (never do a not rough draft ever again for NaNo. Never.)
