Writing Progress September 21 – 27, 2015


September 21

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 22,263
  • Today’s word count: 26
  • Thoughts: Not a good day. I had a lot of stuff going on that distracted me from my writing, and, unfortunately, I have nothing to show for the time and effort. To put it mildly, I’m very upset.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Don’t let the tough stuff keep me down! Get back to my writing and make myself happy.

September 22

No progress made

September 23

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 22,407
  • Today’s word count: 144
  • Thoughts: Not the best day, but far from the worst I’ve had lately. Things finally starting to get straightened out life-wise, so hopefully word counts will improve.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Relax, don’t stress, let the words just happen.

September 24

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 22,528
  • Today’s word count: 129
  • Thoughts: I’m still not happy with my daily word count. I’m trying not to stress about it too much, but with everything else on my mind these day one more thing really isn’t all that much.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get better at this not stressing thing.

September 25

No writing progress made. For once I’m not too upset about this. My day was incredibly productive. The house is cleaner than it was before, and the pantry is full. I’m hoping the work I did today will make for a better writing environment the next few days.

September 26

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 22,844
  • Today’s word count: 316
  • Thoughts: Today was interesting. I felt motivated to write, and pretty happy with what I had to write. I had a lot of time to write too, but it was spread out over the course of the day. I wrote a few sentences here and a few sentences there. It’s not the worst way to write, but I think I wasted a lot of time getting back to my writing groove over and over again.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try to find a decent block of time to focus on my writing.

September 27

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 22,881
  • Today’s word count: 37
  • Thoughts: I barely wrote but I had a refreshing, relaxing day. I spent most of the day with my extended family at a picnic. We managed to get four generations together, and it was just wonderful seeing everyone. Later in the evening my boyfriend and I went out and watched the eclipse, which we were lucky enough to catch when the clouds broke up about fifteen minutes before the total eclipse began.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Continue to feel relaxed and happy. Jump back into writing and get Chapter 3 polished and ready to post.
