Camp NaNo: Week Four

My word count goal was only 20,000, which I completed a few days ago. I actually got quite a bit accomplished, but still have a lot of work ahead to make this a "workable" (or readable) draft. One character's trajectory changed completely, but I like it much better, and another a little more fleshed out. My biggest issue is what to do with a particular female character. I don't write women well. To be honest, I don't like writing women because I feel as though I should be deferring to some kind of feminist ideal, or, at least, it's too easy to pick away at all the problematic parts, which actually make characters interesting.
