Camp NaNoWriMo Day 4

Happy 4th of July! At least for those in America, though I’m sure most countries have a similar type of Independence day. I was supposed to work outside today, but since it rained most of the day, I was stuck inside. This was a good thing for my writing, since I got it done early so I could celebrate the 4th with my family (inside, of course, due to the rain).

My story is going pretty well, though I have a feeling I’ve missed a lot of historical details. Ah, well, I’ll deal with it in rewrites. How are you guys doing with your projects, if you are competing in Camp NaNoWriMo?

Daily Summery

Difference: 3,037 words ahead of schedule.

Current chapter: Chapter 3

Time spent writing: 3 hours (Though I got all my writing done by just after lunch, which was great. I had the afternoon free!)

Current weather: It rained all day…again. Happy Fourth of July (sarcasm intended)!

Tips: Buffing your wordcount by adding lush descriptions is amazing, but don’t add too much or you will have to cut out a lot of pointless description later.

Extra notes: I’m trying to make my characters as human as possible, even if their position might be looked at as negative in society (like a gangster). Even gangsters have hearts!

 

Day 4 complete! See you tomorrow!
