It's not about writing a GOOD novel, case in point

I did some more Wri'ing of my Na No this Mo. A new, and much worse, sample is up here; I'm about 2000 words short of where I'm 'supposed' to be, possibly because it's five days in and I've already lost interest in one of my main characters. Anyway, there it is, if you want to suck along with Mitch.

GOOD DECISIONS:
- Making a three-way narrative involving different characters, only one of whom is interesting
- Giving one main character an overlong, difficult-to-pronounce-and-spell Greek name which I keep forgetting
- Making another main character Mexican-American, so I have to rely on my extremely crappy knowledge of the Spanish language
- Making the book plot-heavy, seeing as I hate plot and I hate writing plot-progressive elements
- Doing this in the first place

Mangia!
