Day 25 NanoWriMo 2016

We are nearing the end of November and I’m still on track! Considering I lost a few days where I wasn’t able to write, I’m quite impressed with myself that I’m still on top of this and that if I do write for the last few remaining days, I’ll definitely finish with 50,000 words!

I’m working on book 3 now that book 2 is done. Well the rough draft for book 2 is done. While I was putting the outline into chapters and scenes, I realized book 3 might be a lot shorter and I was quite concerned with that. However, as I’ve been writing, I’ve already had to add in a few extra chapters because I’ve added a bunch of extra scenes that weren’t initially in the outline that helped to add more to the story. This I’m quite happy about. Once I’m done all the rough drafts (which I’m hoping to complete the rough draft for book 3 after NanoWriMo 2016 and before NanoWriMo 2017), I’ll go through and edit them all (I started on book 1 but had to stop and will likely get back to it once again). I’ve decided that if they are too short on their own once they’ve all been edited and ready to be sent off to publishers, then I will consider them all as one book and put them into three parts. I do realize that there are going to be a lot that I have to change and add in as I edit so there are tons of variables, but we’ll see!

Anyway, keep it going everyone! Only 5 more days!


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.
