Day 14

Okay, so some writing got done tonight. It proved a good distraction to my constant rising stress levels.

I only did this weeks goal as feeling completely brain fried felt inadvisable at this time. It’s good though because it provides some unanswered questions and finishes up a chapter as well.

The writing overall went well. I actually tried to do some minor research to add more validity to the scene, but I didn’t get what I wanted, so after dealing with actual facts, I then added some fun science fiction to it (I mean this is science fiction anyways and takes places a ways in the future so I can basically do what I want so long as it’s not completely irrational and makes no sense). Anyway, it was interesting to deal with more science based information. It could use a bit of work though, and further research will help with that.

On an entirely different note, there’s a chance that this blog and my writing will go on a temporary hiatus. I was given a full time job working for essentially the month of February. It’s a great thing job wise and experience wise, but it is incredibly time consuming and it’s going to throw my entire body out of whack. So not only will I basically be working 19 days straight (I do have days off but they’re few and far between), but I will also be working full nights and days, so I will be sleeping when I’m not working. So as much as I’d love to be able to write during that time, I might not have the mental capacity to do so. HOWEVER, if I do, I will definitely write.

This is really just a warning that there may not be much blog activity or site activity from February 5th to the 23rd. I’m hoping that it’s not the case, but each time I look at the schedule I wonder how I’ll be able to function as a human being. So I don’t want to make promises I may not be able to keep.

I apologize if this inconveniences any of my followers as I value each and every one of you. Just remember that I wish I could spend every day writing and not have to worry about having a job to pay bills. It would be amazing, and my life’s dream, to just be a published writer and make a decent living off of something I absolutely love and have a passion for (no I don’t need to be made a celebrity or have my books turned into movies to be happy). Unfortunately I have to find a way to pay off my school debt and working an exhaustive job is the only way to do so right now.

I am going to try to get some writing in before Wednesday so hopefully I’ll have one more post to make before everything changes for a few weeks. If not, I’m sorry for that too.


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.
