Day 10 – Editing Rough Draft

I just finished one more chapter! The chapter was, admittedly, a difficult one to write and as I edited it, I realized how hard it is to edit as well. It dealt with a lot of complicated and terrible information. It is a very dark chapter. Granted, things get a lot darker, but there’s always light in there and I intend to ensure that it shines through when necessary. Anything that is dark all the time, is too difficult to read for people. There has to be something there that people can hold on to.

Anyway, I must get going. So much to do today!


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.
