Salvage or Shred?

Now that’s some terrible writing. I can’t figure out if the novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo is salvageable or if it belongs in the virtual shredder. I am editing it, per NaNoEdMo, but I find myself cringing around every fourth word. So much over-writing, so little substance.

I like the characters and the basic premise. My gut feeling is to continue cleaning it up and then look at whatever’s left post-pruning. If there is anything left.
