Writing Progress January 18 – 24, 2016


January 18

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 90,821
  • Today’s word count: 661
  • Thoughts: I got to write a really fun scene today. That made struggle to get started worth it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Focus on editing Chapter Eleven and try not to stress about adding to my word count too much.

January 19

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 90,845
  • Today’s word count: 24
  • Thoughts: Super low word count, but that is okay because today was an editing day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’d like to finish editing tomorrow, but I’m trying not to put too much pressure on myself. Right now I’m not a big fan of Chapter Eleven so I’m trying to take my time with it.

January 20

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 90,894
  • Today’s word count: 49
  • Thoughts: More editing today! This chapter is not being very cooperative.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get the editing done! I really want to get it over with so I can get back to writing or at least get back to thinking about writing without feeling like I’m abandoning my editing responsibilities.

January 21

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 90,940
  • Today’s word count: 46
  • Thoughts: I finally finished editing! I posted a chapter teaser for my Patrons and gave them a little artwork bonus as well. I’m pretty excited to have some goodies to share with them.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Tomorrow I’m going to write and get snowed in. It’ll be great!

January 22

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 91,137
  • Today’s word count: 197
  • Thoughts: I thought the snow would be the perfect way to keep myself from being distracted. I was so wrong! I spent a good portion of the day making sure I wouldn’t need to go outside for the next few days for any reason. Then it got dark and the snow started and I was too excited to sit still for long. I’m as bad as a little kid.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: 1. Get snowed in. 2. Actually write a lot because there isn’t much else to do.

January 23

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 91,373
  • Today’s word count: 236
  • Thoughts: The snow is more of a distraction than anything. Everyone wants to talk about the snow and check in and make sure we’re okay. The heat is in overdrive too. 78 degrees is a bit warmer than I’d like.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write and try to avoid getting cabin fever. I’m glad I don’t have to worry about shoveling out!

January 24

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 91,802
  • Today’s word count: 429
  • Thoughts: Not bad, but I was still hoping to do better. I’m making progress with a scene that is giving me trouble so it could be worse.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Keep writing. Try to hold off cabin fever for another day.

I haven’t been outside since Friday afternoon. We’re still pretty much snowed in, but the main road is clear at least. I’m sure I’m not the only one still not going anywhere for at least a few more days thanks to this storm. It’s funny how staying home because of the snow is so much harder than staying home because I don’t want to go out.
