Day 21 – Editing Rough Draft

I have finally finished that chapter! I edited the last scene and there was more to do with it than the rest of it, but that’s okay. I am quite happy that I caught as much as I did. A part of me wishes I could’ve completed the whole thing over the weekend but day light savings time really messed with my sleep schedule. I’m still recovering from the lack of sleep.

A new start to a new week and I’m hoping to get in editing more frequently. There are 11 more chapters to go and then I’ll be going back over the revised draft. I will probably take a short break, perhaps have someone close read over it and see what they think before I start editing it again. Sometimes an outside perspective can help me catch things I wouldn’t have normally realized were there.

Hope everyone is having a good week!


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.
