I'm curious as to how many people embarking on NaNo either have a degree in writing or are currently working on one.
Of course, no one needs a degree to write -- but many of us get that degree so that we can teach writing/composition and occasionally literature at the college level.
So I'm curious to know if you're out there and if so, how you're using NaNo. Are you writing for your MFA thesis or writing for your own side projects? Sticking with the standard MFA genre of "literary" fiction or moving out into popular genres during the month of November.
