NaNoWriMo 2018

Who’s ready for NaNoWriMo 2018??? ARE WE EXCITED?!

Okay, so the all-caps might have been a bit of a stretch. I’m excited, but having finished the rough drafts of my entire manuscript, I’ve been uncertain what I want to work on this coming November. I’ve been toying between a fantasy story that I started writing while in Korea, and actually properly finishing it, and creating that story; and a slightly autobiographical story of my time in Korea. I can’t decide. Maybe I’ll work on both. Maybe I’ll have people vote on it.

In the field of politics, there isn’t really anything good that I comment on right now. Things are all messed up in Ontario, and with legalization of marijuana on it’s way, there are a ton new legislation that’s going through, and that’s screwing a lot of people out of jobs. Our province, if not most of the country, is in turmoil as far as politics go. But I don’t think this is something I want to get into.

I’ve been writing a lot of reflections on how things are today, which might end up going into that autobiographical thing. I’ve never been one to write about myself, so that prospect is a little weird. It’s one thing to share opinions, it’s another to write your story into a book and think people will read it. Is it egotistical? I have no idea. I honestly don’t think my life is all that interesting, it’s probably quite common in comparison to others, but I think it would be interesting based entirely on the writing style. However, in all honesty, I don’t think I’ll end up trying to get that published; just isn’t really my thing.


Anyway, back to NaNoWriMo 2018. I hope everyone is getting ready, and thinking about what they will write. I’ll update again between now and November, I think, so I hope everyone is getting on. Good luck to all!


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.
