National Novel Writing Month!

Here we go again! Another year, another month, another 50,000 words to write!

I know I have been away from updating for a while now and I’ve fallen behind on peoples posts. I apologize for that. Things got busier than I could have imagined and I had to put my writing and editing aside until I could properly take the time to do it. As it stands, things have been rearranged so I’m able to make the time to do the National Novel Writing Month challenge! I am excited to be starting on the rough draft of book 2. I still need to complete the final edit of book 1, but it’s coming along.

Admittedly I have a lot to go through and a lot ahead of me. I still need to fix those short stories I had started during Camp NaNoWriMo (I still can’t get used to the short form of it) and get them available and ready to be published. Up here, it’s harder to get a novel published if you don’t have something else already officially published (I wonder if it’s possible to put “published” in to those two sentences more than I have). So I should really get those done and see where I get with them. I think my novels will be worth publishing, but when and how that happens, I’m not really sure. I had goals set for the end of the year for the short stories (which I still have time to do so I’m still going to try to reach that goal), but more pressing things have occupied my mind recently. I’m still hoping to reach that goal but as it stands, I’m going to focus on book 2 and getting the rough draft done.

Otherwise, I hope everyone who is taking part in National Novel Writing Month is up for the challenge and does great! I believe in all of you, and good luck!


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.
