One week left

There is only about one week left before National Novel Writing Month begins.

I have been making notes, a chart, and using a notebook to keep track of everything I write and when during that month. I am going to track my progress that way, and I have created a plan in hopes of finishing with 50,000 words. I believe I am prepared.

I took some time, over the last bit, to try to think of something new if I were to start a new story for the challenge. I started writing out some ideas but when I got to the end of everything that had gone through my head, I realized I didn’t actually have anything solid. Needless to say, there wasn’t anything for me to build on and the story wasn’t interesting enough to keep me writing about it. I’ve tried to think of new ideas, but I still haven’t come up with anything. So, as it stands, I think I’ll be working on my novel and finishing the manuscript for the challenge.

I’ve also thought about how often I am going to post since I’ll be writing almost every day. At this point, I’m thinking I probably won’t end up having time to throw a post out there each time I write, but I’m going to try to do it anyways. If I can’t, then it’ll at least be every other day. Regardless, my posting will become more frequent, and possibly even more interesting during the month of November.

I hope that any of you who are taking on this challenge will be successful. I wish everyone the best of luck in it! I know that the creative people who take it on will do well with 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.
