I have personally participated in NaNoWriMo for about five years or so and won/reached 50,000 words three times (if memory serves). I wanted to introduce NaNoWriMo to more people, so I created a comic about what it's like to participate in NaNoWriMo. Each page covers what one week is like, and each page will be posted on the Friday of the week it represents.
I would recommend that everyone try NaNoWriMo at least once. Even if you don't cross the 50,000 word finish line you will STILL likely write more and get farther in telling your stories than you ever have before. If you do finish, then congratulations, you're a novelist! You can wow your friends and colleagues with your new-found title and, who knows, maybe even clean up that rough first draft into something beautiful and get published. It's worth it for the experience alone, and that goes double if you manage to stick to your writing and complete the challenge.
You can get more information about NaNoWriMo or sign up here: http://www.nanowrimo.org/ I hope to see some of you in the writing trenches!
