Plot Progression: I don't even know any more :P
Well, here we are at the end of the month! Nearly 60k, which isn't bad, and a novel that's certainly not as bad as it could have been.
So many things wrong with it, though, it's nearly driving me mad. However, I am going to have to deal with it. And instead of ranting on about the things that are bad about it, I've made myself list three things that I am proud of in this NaNovel.
1) The multi-stranded plot makes for interesting contrasts and a rather pleasing effect as it all draws together.
2) My characters' dialogue is much better than it has been in many of my previous works.
3) I'm really enjoying getting back into the first-person perspective, and its effect on the story.
Of course, all these things are relative to the novel's status as a first draft, and doubtless I'll feel much better when I come back and improve it in the future. That said, though, this NaNo has been a fantastic experience for me - it's been a challenge, in many ways, but I've pulled through and made the wordcount, been to my first Write In, and had a really really good time.
What about you guys? Have you enjoyed your NaNoveling this month? What are the three best things about your novel? Leave me a comment and let me know!
