Day 29 – Editing Rough Draft

At last I have had time to edit the entirety of the long chapter that was ahead of me! Well, one of the long chapters that lay before me. The best part about it was that I was able to do it outside in my backyard with my dogs relaxing in the shade and the sun. The weather is finally nice enough to sit outside and enjoy it, and the dogs are relieved that we’re outside with them now. It’s quite peaceful out here and I think that made editing all the more enjoyable.

The chapter is the beginning of everything starting to settle down a bit, as well as the set up for the second book. It’s the very start of the set up for the second book, as it kind of spans over the next few chapters. The next chapter actually shouldn’t be too bad, length wise, so I’m hoping to get that one edited this week sometime. Otherwise, the following ones are much longer, and therefore I will need to find time to put aside for them.

I am nearing the end though….I literally have four more chapters and then I’ll be finished the revised draft of book 1. It’s both exciting and completely terrifying. Once it’s complete, I’ll be taking a short break before coming back and doing the final draft. It will also be the time where I have a close friend of mine take a look at it and help me find things I might have missed going through it. I’m really quite happy and excited about the things to come.

I hope everyone is having a great week. I hope that things are going well for all of you, and that nice weather has finally come for all of you too.


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.
