Day 1

This was the first day of the start of my new plan (my new plan involves writing for set days while maintaining the jobs I currently have and trying to find another one in a more specialized field, and when I have a chance, improve my filming and photographing skills).

I went through the old chapters of my previous manuscripts for book 1, 2, and 3, and pulled a couple specific stories from it that I think are worth getting into for the new version. They are important for a number of reasons but I won’t get into that right now.

I looked over the outline, and despite how detailed it is, it’s not broken down quite enough to distribute into individual chapters yet. To do this, I would need several more hours in the day, and considering I spent almost the whole day getting over a migraine and wasn’t able to sit down until a couple of hours ago to do work, it is not an undertaking I can perform right now. It will have to wait until the next work day. I also completed editing a chapter which also took longer than I thought it would.

So the writing is going slowly but smoothly so far.

For video and photography projects I don’t have much to share. I haven’t had a chance to really get out and take any photos. I am on instagram, but all those photos are taken with my iPad and they’re of my dogs so I’m not sure how many people are really interested in that. Maybe when I have more variety I’ll post a link to my instagram page.

I think that’s all for now. In the meantime here’s a photo taken on my cell phone (not good quality at all) of my current work space.




About rachelsparling

I'm a writer working on a manuscript for a novel. I love to write and I've been doing it for 17 years. Through several story ideas I have figured out what works and what doesn't, and I've learned a lot about myself and my writing style. I love to read and escape to many different worlds. I've also learned a lot about good writing and bad writing through both reading a lot and acquiring an education in English literature, and becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy filming and photographing all sorts of things and putting together short documentaries and videos. I love my camera.
