NaNo NoGo

I'm throwing in the towel for 2010 on NaNoWriMo. It was exhilarating to finish all 50k words last year and generate new story drafts. People on my f-list were cheering me on for the final sprint and that's why I was able to finish. I've generated about 10k this year, but none of it feels right. I'm just not feeling the love. If I kept typing, I suppose I would find a story in there somewhere. But I keep thinking about all the drafts I have that aren't yet edited. And that I was working on editing some of them when NaNo rolled around. And I think I should listen to that thought.
