Day 25

Despite waking up with a bad migraine, an upset stomach, and it taking a long time for me to feel remotely “okay” today, I got around to do some writing.

It was tough because I wasn’t sure I could look at a computer screen long enough before my head or stomach would start hurting and I’d need to throw up. Luckily, that didn’t happen. I wrote more than 2000 words in less than an hour. I have to admit, I’m quite content with my speed of writing lately. It’s been going more smoothly and more quickly than my previous manuscript had.

Anyway, I finished another chapter. It’s a short one given the word count but I’m okay with that. I’m really just happy I was able to stare at a computer screen! Okay enough of that. It was a good chapter, it introduced another obstacle for the main character and a strategy was inevitably formed in her mind. It’s coming together, slowly but surely. Not in a boring way. It’s still interesting. Hopefully. Ah well that’s what editing is for!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and hope that you all enjoy the rest of it. It’s been beautiful weather here and I can’t wait to be capable of enjoying it.


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.
