I should probably declare what I'm doing this NaNoWriMo.

I'm doing what qntm did with his NaNoWriMo in the past - instead of writing one big novel, write 30 short stories. Or scenes. Not necessarily connected with anything I previously wrote. If it does, sure, but no sweat if I want to tell a completely different story the next day.

One of the things I want to do is to spend at least a day writing something with no dialogue, just narratives and descriptions.

I find that whenever I try to write a story in third person, I use *a lot* of dialogues. I literally have the scene playing in my head like a movie, including hearing the dialogues, and I wrote them out.

It's not a bad thing, but sometimes I just feel like I'm writing too many dialogues, as if I'm writing a script. That's not my intent. I want to write a story.
