(I'm counting this all as day one because I haven't been to bed yet.)

I don't especially like my plot - primarily because I don't really have one. I don't have an outline either. Fuck, I don't even know what sex my protagonist is. Or whether the story is written in first person or third. This is getting very frustrating. (Explanation: over the first three chapters, my story has switched from third person to first, past tense to present and back to past, and my protagonist has (mysteriously) gone from a straight male to a gay male to a straight female and back to a gay male. Honestly, I don't know how that happened.)

On the other hand, I'm ahead on my word count and, um, that's really all I have to say about that. Sucks that it's all really horrible writing.

I need to participate one of these days. For most of my life, I wrote fiction like crazy--even have completed two novels in my life, which I never did anything with--but the past couple attempts, I write ten pages and stop.

You really should participate - and there's no time like the present. I have very similar writing issues - I've written a few novels over the years, but usually I have trouble getting past ten pages. NaNoWriMo is a great motivator. Plus, there's still enough time to hit 50,000 words this month! ;)
