Day 10

I had some more time to write today. It is part of what will be a very interesting chapter. It’s the most pivotal scene in that chapter, and probably the second or third overall in the manuscript. A new character is introduced that is unlike any other character seen and met yet. The character is going to have a huge role in not only the main plot of the story, but also in helping and providing information for the main character. I love it when I get to write characters like that.

Prior to starting on the scene that I wrote today, I did a bit of editing as I went through certain parts of the story. There were a few things I needed to check before I started writing this scene, and I had to consult my very first manuscript for certain details about the character – primarily the physical description. I know my characters personalities down to a “t”, but since I’ve only really described them once in specific detail in the original manuscript, I had to make sure I still remembered them correctly.

It helps to have all of the original stories to use as a reference. Sure it’s great to be creative and imaginative, but I find having so much to work off of is what will make this manuscript better than the last. It will be better written and there will be more depth because of what I’m taking from the original manuscript. I’m very much looking forward to seeing how everything turns out in the end, and what my close friends and editors will think of it too.

Now I’m officially caught up for my goals for the last two weeks. I will still need to do the writing for this week, but I have the full week to do so and I’m not nearly as busy as I was the previous weeks.

Anyway, a busy day tomorrow. I hope everyone has wonderful New Year’s Eve celebrations no matter what you end up doing. Happy New Year!


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.
