I started my novel today! I've spent all morning on it so far and have written 2 551 words (the daily target is 1 667 to get to 50 000 by the end of November). I don't want to become boring about NaNoWriMo, nor do I want to give away too much about the plot of my novel, but I will post occasional updates here and on Facebook. I'm also thinking of sharing links that have been useful in my research over on Twitter.
So far the narrative is flowing reasonably well, some of my characters are developing well and i have a reasonably good feeling about the whole thing!
Any other NaNoWriMo people feel free to share your experiences in the comments below!
