Once again for NaNo, I have built myself a puppy pound. So named because it is the place you put the "dogs", the stuff you wrote that just doesn't work in the story, but you wrote it during NaNo, so the words count towards the total word count, even if you can't bear to keep them in the same file(s) as the "actual" story bits.

You hear repeatedly, "Don't edit during NaNo", but I've said it before, and I'll say again: sometimes you gotta, just to keep the story moving forward. If I change my mind about how something's going to go, it's a heck of a lot easier to write parts B, C, and D if part A has been changed to how I want it to be now, rather than remaining the ick-way I wrote it last week before my brilliant brainstorm.

So, neener-neener, NaNo.
