What's the most blatant trick you've ever used to increase your word count for NaNoWriMo? (A trick being anything that you know in advance is unlikely to remain when you go back and edit the story.)

For me, it would have to be using the chapter title to give a lengthy - almost item-by-item - summary of the chapter.
Of course I'm normal...I'm 90 degrees off from the rest of the world.

I think the only thing I've really had a tendency to do is avoid contractions.  which makes the dialogue sound really awkward :p  but it helps a little!
