Two Days

There are only two days until National Novel Writing Month begins! Well less than that since I’ll be starting right at midnight of November 1st. So I guess it’s more like 32 hours. Either way, it’s fast approaching!

Since I haven’t come up with any new ideas for a story, I’m going to stick with my manuscript I’m working on. I am eager to get back to writing and I think I am definitely going in with a good attitude and plan.

While my brother and I were walking the dogs today, we got into an interesting discussion about the effectiveness of narrative and how when writing a certain way, the author can develop an interesting effect on the reader. We looked at a number of different authors and their use of first and/or third person narration. It became quite the lively discussion and we determined interesting, and different ways to establish certain information in a story. My brother is also taking on the challenge and we’re doing it together (working on our own individual story, but discussing ideas and concepts, while working on them at the same time).

Anyway, to those who are beginning this weekend for the challenge, I wish you all the best of luck! And those who aren’t doing it, I’m sure you’ll all have a wonderful November.


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.
