Script Frenzy: a spinoff from NaNoWriMo, with the main difference that during Script Frenzy, your goal is to write a 100-page script for film, tv, radio, game, etc. This program got discontinued after its last run in April 2012.
Camp NaNoWriMo: a spinoff from the usual NaNoWriMo, occuring in the more sunny months of the year. Goal of writing 50,000 words in a month remains the same, though.
NaNoWriMo: a yearly event where thousands of writers all over the world get together to write their own novel of 50,000 words in one month. (Participant since 2007 and still writing!)
Good inspiration for NaNoWriMo
