An Abrupt Shift

I am waaay behind on my NaNoWriMo novel.  At this rate I have to average about 3,000 words a day to make 50,000 by month's end.  And of course about 70 in pages my "novel" decided to shift gears entirely and tell the story from a completely different angle, using a completely different voice.

So rather than cry into my coffee or give up altogether, I'm just going to keep writing, starting from this new perspective and new plot point.  Everything's out of sequence now, and although my rough idea for the structure was going to be loose and episodic-based anyway, I'll just figure out the problems next month.

"Just get it down" has become my mantra.  I'm never at a loss for beginnings, it's just the middles and the ends that elude me.

NaNoWriMo profile, with new "hard-boiled  detective" excerpt that admittedly sounds nothing like the previous excerpts posted.
