Day 12 - Aspen Allegations - NaNoWriMo 2012


Day 12 was sunny skies and white, fluffy clouds. 60F. This was probably the last gasp of autumn, so we decided to go to Purgatory Chasm for a walk.

Unfortunately I forgot that all the schools had today off. With the gorgeous weather it meant Purgatory Chasm was absolutely *packed* with people. And many of them were running, screaming, and yelling. So it wasn't quite the atmosphere that I was aiming for for today.

I am thrilled that the kids are out away from their TV sets! That is wonderful. It's just that I would have done my walk on another day, for this purpose, had I realized it. Still, it meant I could build the circumstances into the story and make it more realistic.

Also as it was Veteran's Day I was able to build in the link to the land that was donated to Purgatory Chasm, in the memory of a veteran.

Today I crossed the half way mark of the 50,000 word goal! Hurrah!
