Day 18

Writing is highly therapeutic.

I spent the last bit working on a chapter. I exceeded my goal again this week which makes me happy, and I completed a chapter as well! One down, another 7.5 to go (if you count the ones I’ve already started)!

I wasn’t sure I would have time to do some writing today. Things seemed hectic around the house. Luckily I didn’t have to feel too confined to my daily responsibilities, and I was able to break away to get some writing done.

It went well overall. I feel better about this chapter than the last one I wrote. The previous one wasn’t my full effort so it will require a lot more editing. This one felt more like my usual writing and that’s a good thing. I felt like the characters are more comfortable in their surroundings now too which makes a big difference I think. When there’s so much to learn and nothing really happening except for truths being dropped on a character, there’s not much to be seen really. This chapter helped with that quite a bit. It had more showing than telling and for me, that’s a good thing.

Anyway, must get back to my usual saturday. I hope everyone is enjoying their 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.
