Writing, writing, writing

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted, and since I’ve written anything. The last time would’ve been to finish NaNoWriMo and 50,000 words, and I’ve since been unable to find the time. Yesterday though, I spent the better part of the day writing and got a fair bit done. I added in a lot that I think really provides more background, better connection with the characters, and will add more to provide actual depth to what has been going on. Also, this chapter is going to end up being way longer than I anticipated, and right now, that’s a very good thing.

It felt good to get back to writing. While I’m currently living in a different province, I’m back at school, and adjusting to this new routine; I’m glad that it’s not completely different. I’m glad that I can still sit down, when I have the time, and write. There’s been a lot of changes lately in my life and definitely some adjustments, which have all for the most part been good. There are some that I will need more time to take in and manage, but the important part is that I am managing.

It feels like the time is going by very quickly. It’s already nearly been two weeks since I left, and it’s gone by very fast. I knew it would; I knew I’d step off the plane and a week would come and go. The next five weeks are going to feel like that too, especially when I start having classes every day. I guess I should take advantage of my days off now, when I can.

I’ll be back at home in five weeks, and hopefully finishing this all up within a couple of weeks of me getting home. After that, well, we’ll see what happens job wise, and life changes wise. I don’t quite know what to expect yet. Since I’ve left to do this, a number of things have come and changed things, and they have happened very fast.

I hope everyone is having a good start to their new year!


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.
