So we're half way through NaNoWriMo and I hope you're all doing well.
I am not.
I want to quit.
But do I want to quit because;
a) I'm distracted by two new shiny ideas AND a possible solution to a plot problem in last years NaNo (Get back in your box!)
b) because I'm right in the middle of the story and the middle is always hard. Beginnings are so much nicer.
c) I recognize that this story is going nowhere. My first two novels grew around an idea but this one has grown round a character. Now we've met the character and seen him in action for a bit and I'm not quite sure what the point is. But maybe if I keep writing a point will become clear.
So fellow NaNoer's and Non NaNoers tell me this, how do you decide if quitting is the right thing to do?
