From the front page of the NaNoWriMo site

"...things should settle down again by Tuesday or Wednesday when the new arrivals return to the their writing lairs to begin stalking up on candy corn, bacon, and other items essential to the noveling journey."

Not sure about "noveling" either.

Well, if it's meant to be a pun it's a pretty awful one!

Actually hadn't occurred it might be deliberate!

If it is deliberate it is stchooopid.

Well, "stalking" goes with "lairs"... but then you only "stalk" things, not "stalk up on" them. And I definitely don't like "noveling"... Is this meant to be a website for writers? hmm

Yes hmm. If you read it in an American accent it seems more like a misspelling.

Yes, you can imagine Loyd Grosman pronouncing it "stalking up"...
