This might be from the ASPCA but this is still valid here in the UK. I’m sure the RSPCA would agree with these points too.
For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s officially summer and it’s pretty darn hot!
And even though you’ve been inundated with posts to social media telling you to take precautions, we still hear stories of people who unknowingly put their beloved pets at risk.
So the good folks at the ASPCA are asking you to share this infographic far and wide. Let’s make this summer the safest ever for animals!

So what’s happened over the weekend?
Well, my word goal has dropped from 50k to 25k. It was just not going to happen this month with everything going on around me. At least, I can get as much of the story written as possible and write a basic outline of the story. I just want to write and this is the first time in a long while I have really felt like trying to write and going for it. That is my priority for now.
In terms of real story, my FMC is already beginning to talk to the dragon and her dog about what’s going on and her thoughts and feelings. This might seem like an odd thing to note but considering that my FMC will mainly be on her own for much of the rest of the story, it is important that the character starts developing this. Note just to help her work things out but also for her mental health.
Speaking of characters, the FMC and her crush have also decided to run away from me again by kissing in the forest and then she slapped him for doing so. It’s what happens when they apparently really want to be together but cannot. Quite a tune change from earlier. My characters can be evil like that.
My character has also finally arrived on the main island of the archipelago! Hurrah! Took me forever to get their but she is there finally and I can start the next part of the story properly. Maybe the words might be a little easier this time, maybe.

Yesterday, I came up with more questions than answers whilst writing but that’s a good thing as it gives me stuff to play with later. It is early enough in the novel to still be introducing sub-plots and plot points to follow-up and use later to further the drama and action.
One of the points is still up in the air but it’s about my main characters dog. I was planning on having her leave the dog behind but he’s suddenly going with her so wondering if I should actually kill the dog. What do people think? I would be grateful for some advice on that. I have no idea really what to do there.
The other is the revelation that the my main character and her crush are on bad terms at the moment because my main character wants to try a relationship despite the long distance and the chance she will never return to the mainland. Meanwhile he doesn’t want to try because he cannot stand the idea of her not being there, being a long distance boyfriend when he could never see her again. I understand the characters concerns and like the fact it has caused conflict between them but that leaves me with a problem: when do I resolve it and the finer points of how?
Still, as I said, that’s good because it gives me things to play with and use later. How is everyone else going? Do I kill the dog? Any ideas?
