This was the type of day that I had all planned out, and then it came and nothing happened as it was supposed to. I was supposed to mow the lawn, but my grandparents called and wanted to take my family out to lunch (which was lovely so I’m not complaining too much). But I’m the type of person who mentally prepares myself for difficult tasks (like mowing the lawn), so to change plans can be a bit disconcerting.
Anyway, on to writing…actually, I don’t think I have anything new to say. Although I’m nearing the 40,000 mark, there is still so much left of my book to write. I’m realizing it’s probably going to end up being 100,000 words or more. Maybe, if I don’t write any more when Camp NaNoWriMo ends, I’ll continue it in November. That would be pretty funny.

Tips: The last chapter or so of my book has been more action-oriented, and one thing I find helpful during these chapters is to keep description to short, limited sentences, so the pacing of the chapter feels quicker.
Extra notes: It was 60 degrees this morning! What a lovely day!
