Day 26

As it turns out I’m quite sick. I don’t know if I’ll get in as much writing as I did last week during this week, but I’m still going to try my best. Perhaps if I end up being bed ridden, I can bring my laptop in with me and maintain some solace at the idea that I could write if I needed/wanted to. However, I’m not betting anything.

Anyway, I wrote another chapter again. I am noticing that many of my chapters are turning out substantially shorter than I intended them to be and still want them to be. A lot of the earlier chapters are set ups for many things that happen later which will more than likely provide much longer chapters once I get there in the story. Still, I was hoping for chapters similar in length to my other manuscript. Oh well.

The chapter went well. A lot of it is internal struggle at this point so there isn’t a whole lot happening outside of the characters mind in this chapter. The mental struggle will go through the entire story but it will become more of a subplot than a forefront. Things get out of hand and a lot more actual physical struggles start cropping up. It will show the struggles for the characters in which they must over come and show their strength as well. They are not stupid but they are all very different in their rationalization of the world around them.

I won’t give much more away as I think I need a nap (though I won’t get it yet). Hope everyone had 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.
