If you have never written a novel before and you would like some additional guidance and tuition on fiction writing techniques before NaNoWriMo starts then the following resources may be helpful. I have also included a couple of resources for that specifically teach you to write quickly.
Writing Good Fiction
No Plot? No Problem!: A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days
by Chris Baty, founder of NaNoWriMo.
Plot & Structure: (Techniques And Exercises For Crafting A Plot That Grips Readers From Start To Finish)

Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success

Writing a Book in a Month
For help writing quickly here are a couple of courses on CD to consider:
Novel in a Month, by Dan Strauss.
This course shows you how to develop your characters. Create a best-selling plot. Move the story forward. Keep the tension building. Write an explosive ending. And all of this combined with speed writing techniques.
Write Any Book in LESS Than 28 Days, by Nick Daws. Nick Daws has some excellent advice on writing a book quickly although his course is more suited to writing a non-fiction book. It will suit those who plan to use the NaNoWriMo challenge to write a non-fiction book.
