More National Novel Writing Month!

So I’m still managing to write at least the minimum each night. Which is a good thing because since Sunday I’ve been fighting off a rather non-wonderful virus. So non-wonderful that when I went to see my doctor he full on said “I’m not going to touch you because I don’t want to get it”. I have to laugh at that. At least it’s not air born.

Anyway, because of this my brain has been less than quick with the writing. I’ve still been able to write, but these short chapters/scenes will probably require the most editing since I’m not 100%. That’s to be expected though. I’m pretty sure I’ve used the same descriptive word one too many times in one of the paragraphs I wrote tonight. At least when I get to editing it, I should be able to think of something better and more clever.

On another note, the editing of my final draft of book 1 has been put on hold until the challenge is complete. I’ll get back to it in December and hopefully have it completed within a couple of months. I have a friend who is also looking at it at the same time so that can sometimes tie things up. For those of you who don’t know, or may not remember (which is completely fair considering my inconsistent updating), I have printed out the copy of my manuscript and I am writing all over it. So once I’m done all that, and my friend is done all that, I will still have to make all the corrections to the digital copy as well, which will take time.

Anyway, I should call it a night soon. It’s been a long day and while I think I’m starting to recover, the virus is taking it’s toll on me physically.

Good luck to everyone still writing! I know you can do it!


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.
