I decided, rather than just going through the draft and adding the next layer of action and blocking, that I needed to go through the draft and trace out some of the different threads. There's so many story threads, half of which are just summarily dropped in mid-stream, that need to be either abandoned officially, or filled out, or just plain "outlined"/figured out, and I am going to try to fill them out as a way of boosting the word count.

Striving too hard for coherence can be your enemy in NaNo because it slows you down, but incoherence can take the steam out of the whole process and just make it seem pointless.
