Day 17 – Editing Rough Draft

I finished the chapter I had started on yesterday. The last two scenes were shorter and came together relatively quickly as I went through them. I think the flow and character consistency is still good. I am noticing a difference in my writing style a bit as I reach the later chapters, realizing the time and effort I had been putting into it. It’s not that I didn’t try with the earlier chapters, but the later ones seem to have a bit more ease to them, almost more consistent. It feels like there’s less to edit but of course, there’s always lots.

Given all of that above, I am curious to see how the rest of the chapters come along. Doing the National Novel Writing Month challenge had me writing on a regular basis and I could see my writing improving each day. It was gradual but I could definitely see the difference. So I am interested to see how the next chapters come together and how much I will need to fix. The earlier ones definitely needed more work and will continue to need it before completion.

I hope everyone’s week is going well.


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.
