It was only yesterday that I mentioned how chapter five of Tattoos, Bones and Death was difficult to write. I didn’t lie but today wasn’t much better. In part because I realized that my rough drafts are really bad. Which, I have to admit, is the point of writing for National Novel Writing Month. The thought about my writing not being good took hold of me for the majority of the afternoon and well into the evening. Truth be told, I was complementing the idea whether to stop writing Tattoos, Bones and Death. My writing hasn’t gone remotely to where I planned it and the words aren’t coming out the way I want them to.
However, I decided – vaguely, though I doubt this is possible – that I will continue to write Tattoos, Bones and Death without worrying that my writing isn’t the best at the moment. After all, that is what editing is all about. I added the chapter here. I do like to mention that I did reach my goal for today and I was able to finish the chapter.

I was able to hit my mark today, again, plus more. Somehow I feel like this chapter is a bit boring but I promise you that it is important. I’m setting the stage for the entire book. It is also a bit slow, in my opinion but I do like this chapter. By now I think we have an understanding of Angela’s (the main character) relationship with her mom. This is just more set up for later conflict. To whoever has taken the time to read the first few chapters, you have my deepest gratitude.

As I mentioned before, I wasn’t so sure about publishing my NaNoWriMo novel. However, I thought more about it and I shall be posting the chapters up on Wattpad. I have included the link so if you want to check it out then feel. I will warn you that it won’t be edited though I will do my best to have my grammar fixed and everything smoothed out. Hopefully, all those you enjoy the story and have thoughts on it, will leave a comment. I really want positive feedback and helpful criticism. Thanks to the awesome people of wattpad, I have many covers for my story. I need to work on my cast as well but I have some idea of who I want; though I’m not saying just yet. Y’all have to wait until the first chapter is published. Speaking of publishing, I will probably writing the story out on paper then transferring it to a word document. I’ll be switching between the two. I’ll try my hardest to post a chapter everyday but don’t quote me on it. I do have to attend college and it’s not easy balancing a job, school and writing. However, I will do my very best to do so this month.
