Day 5 – National Novel Writing Month

I’ve had such a busy two days that I’m glad I managed to get a lot more writing done tonight. I have nearly added another 3,000 words to my total, giving me a current total of 13,902 words! I just need to keep this up and I’ll be good to go.

As it stands, in my manuscript, I’m nearing the final climax of the first novel. Things are coming together very quickly. I can make it span and be quite long though. The final bits are quite lengthy and relatively huge in relation to the rest of the story. For example, I have only made it about a 1/3 of the way through the outline for the chapter I’m working on. This is a good thing as it means this will be a lengthy chapter and will trigger the big events to come. It will also bring about what ends up happening in the sequel. Despite the fact it appears I’m nearing the end, I still have a lot to write. And if I happen to reach the end without making 50,000 words, then I will go over the chapters I’ve written and expand them. Perhaps adding some more insight into certain things. Either way I’m sure I’ll make it.

Tomorrow should go back to my normal-ish routine and I should be able to get as much, or more writing done.

Hope everyone is doing well and making great progress!


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.
