NaNoWriMo! Is! Almost! Here!

If you remember from a previous post in which I introduced myself, one of the things I love is NaNoWriMo.
Oh November, how I yearn for thee...
In case you've forgotten, NaNoWriMo (which stands for "National Novel Writing Month") is a writing event in November in which people, such as you and me, set a goal: to write 50,000 words by 11:59:59 pm on November 30...without repeating the same word 50,000 times.
My main characters this year are two university childhood friends, both girls. One is a clean freak and extremely OCD, but is otherwise fairly calm. The other is a messy person who leaves things lying around all the time. She is also easily distracted and is possibly slightly ADD. My plot starts with these two girls moving together as roommates for the same university (which I have yet to name), and basically revolves around their strangeness/friendship, etc. I have yet to create a "villain" character, but I'm sure one will appear sooner or later.
I got stuck at 28,000 words last year...I will prevail this year! 50,000 words,  here I come!
I've already gotten two MC's and two supporting characters, as well as several scenes I plan to incorporate into the story.
A friend of mine will give me candy if I include a certain scene and give her a cameo appearance in said scene. I love my friends. :3
Are you going to take on the challenge of 50,000 words? Join us!

Please note that if you choose to pursue this challenge, you should be able to give up your sanity/social life for a month in order to win.

You'll get your life back after the event.
Good morning/night/afternoon, wherever you may be!
Mentally preparing to give up my non-existant social life,
