2008: >9300 words. Urban fantasy (I think). May pick that story up again some day.
2009: Morning Sickness hit on November 1st. Toughed it out the first week and wrote a few thousand words on a fun little urban fantasy type of story, but by the weekend, it went into full All Day Sickness for the next 3 months. I'm not even counting it as a year I participated. Writing didn't happen, I dropped off the face of the internet. May pick up that story again as well some day.
2010: Had an infant. Free time was spent catching up on sleep. Didn't even cross my mind when November rolled around that it was NaNoWriMo time again. I actually don't even remember that November.
2011: I CAME BACK!!!! I was finally sleeping again, I had written a couple of short pieces, tried some bad haiku, found myself brainstorming ideas on my commute again, so I decided to give NaNoWriMo another go, see if it could kick start my writing habit again. New story idea, kind of a YA bent but still involved magic and supernatural beings. Hey, its a fun world to explore, full of possibilities. I only managed to do 7765 words, due to time issues (toddlers and novel writing are a challenge to combine).
2012 June Camp: topped just over 10,000, but that's okay because my personal goal was 5000, and I actually managed to write every day. I was continuing my 2011 novel.
2012 August Camp: tried, but due to shoulder surgery, only managed to get in a couple hundred words. But managed to outline the next section of the novel, so I'll be all ready to go for adding 50000 (yeah right) words in November.
2012 November: Still plugging away at the same novel from last year. Hope to add another 15000 new words to it this November.
