My Long Standing Missing Status

Okay so that is really not indicative of anything. I think that title needs work but we’ll ignore and I’ll just plow through this post.

I have not been back at writing for some time though I do quite need to get back into it, especially in time for NanoWriMo. It’s fast approaching and I really want to do it. My problem is that I’m handling a full time job, a heavy course (both lecture, reading, test, and assignment based for that month), and then trying to fit in 50,000 words might be really tough. I am still going to try because well… I need it.

While it might not be my intention to get into too much detail of my personal life here, I do want to say that things since May have been relatively difficult for me, and over the last few weeks they seem to have reached a very difficult time. I am getting by and things will be looking up eventually. I have been working towards to maintaining the things I enjoy in life and trying to fit them in so that I can feel fulfilled in what I’m doing – to help balance out the aspects of my life I’m not happy with (my job for instance).

So in that respect, I am going to try to get back to updating this blog more often, which leads me to the next set of decent news. I have a new laptop! It’s not a new fancy thing that does a thousand new fancy things and is all high tech. Nope, it’s a refurbished laptop that does enough of what I need it to do. In other words, I can FINALLY update my dam website! So with that, I will actually be able to stay on top of things, I will actually be able to look at peoples posts and follow people and be able to update everyone when NanoWriMo starts!

Okay, so I think that’s where I’m going to end this. I just thought I’d give a quick update and let everyone know that the technological issue appears to be fixed and finally I can be present!



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.
