I will be a 2016 player or participant in National Novel Writing Month.
I last participated in 2013 and I was a winner that year. I've done absolutely nothing with that novel aside from a little editing here and there, but it was a great experience. I'm hoping to recreate some of the same magic. My only perceived difficulty will be that it coincides with Mystele's "Mongo" Gut Art 2016.
It's my hope that I'll be able to win at both of those things. I figure it's better to try than not even begin for fear of failing.
If you've never heard of NaNoWriMo, it's a monthly challenge to write a novel. The goal is to write 1,667 words a day (or the equivalent based on how you divide it up) so that you reach 50,000 words by the end of the month. Doing so within the time frame makes you a winner of the challenge. The price is that win itself, not some sparkly prize that is handed out or raffled off. Everyone that participates and meets their goal is a winner.
If you're also a participant, I hope you'll become my NaNoWriMo buddy. Alternatively, some people choose to adopt this theme and turn it into NaNoJouMo, which is essentially an art journal page or spread done each day.

See you in December!
