How does "resistance to [psychiatric] medication" develop?

Today is the first day of National Novel Writing Month, and I've been kicking around a setting in which the regular use of all kinds of mood- and cognition-enhancing drugs is widely accepted in society and tacitly endorsed by the government (though this is neither utopic nor dystopic). I'd like my protagonist to be dealing with the fallout of developing a resistance to these mind-enhancing medications, but before I spend 50,000 words on it, I'd like to check my premises.

I have a story in my head, and since we're relatively close to November, I figured I'd give NaNoWriMo a try this year to get it written. What are your experiences with NaNoWriMo, and how can I overcome my obsessive self-editing and various sources of distraction to be successful? [more inside]

I want to get a nice front page illustration made for my book

I want to get a front-cover illustration for my children's book that I wrote during Nanowrimo. What's the cheapest/best way to get one done? One idea would be using the services of a website similar to 99designs but for book illustrators, anyone know of one?

Busy my Autumn!

So I just broke up with somebody I've been dating for several years. For the next few months I want to keep busy, improve my health, and do some things with my spare time. I'm thinking nanowrimo in November, and maybe something like the 100 pushup challenge. I'm cycling to work.
