Day 5

Ah got some writing done this week finally!

This week ended up being busier than I expected so unfortunately I only had today to write. I did meet the minimum requirement for the word count I wanted to reach. I finished a chapter too, start to finish. However, I’m going to need to do more work on it. I’m content with parts of it but I feel like certain areas are a bit rushed. Which I was kind of rushed to finish it due to unexpected time constraints. I’ll most likely have to go over it at another date to fix it up which won’t be until next week.

Also, I’ve realized how incredibly uncomfortable this chair is. It’s fine for lower back support but since it doesn’t reach my upper back, it’s uncomfortable. I find myself crouching over when I try to lean back and it’s very difficult to have my back straight and proper. I’m going to have to find a way of replacing this thing. It’s great if you’re not sitting in it for long, but let’s be honest, writing isn’t something that’s done in ten minutes. I need better support from my chair.

Tomorrow I will be spending 7 hours travelling to Orillia and on Sunday I will be spending 6 hours travelling back home. They are going to be long days of travel so I don’t suspect I’ll have the energy to get any writing done. That and I’ll be visiting a friend so I don’t want to feel the pressures of writing and just take the time to relax.

Earlier this week we had our first real snowfall this winter. It was quite beautiful. I took a bunch of photos as well as some videos – which haven’t been uploaded but will be when I get back. I will be posting some of the photos here, but also on my photography page too. I’m still not all great with the editing so for the most part they’re just the originals.

Snow on leaves.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.


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.
