Perspectives

Because I am stumped on other current projects, I began a read-through of the 2006 NaNo. I'm about half-way through and I am finding it little more than a detailed outline of the story.

The characters are paper-doll-ish. The plot resembles an ill-fitting, moth-eaten jacket. The world building is barely there.

Exactly as expected, in other words.

Which doesn't disappoint me really. It's something to work with and that's about all you can realistically expect from NaNo.

With any luck, I'll get through it in the next couple of days, make some notes and let it sit another few months before I do any serious work on it.

Perspective, that's the thing when editing...
