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?

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!
