Writing Progress February 22 – 28, 2016


February 22

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 94,026
  • Today’s word count: 209
  • Thoughts: I wish I wrote more, but it just wasn’t in the cards.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to editing. I’m hoping to write for a while too, but that will depend on time.

February 23

  • Project: The Deams
  • Total word count: 93,976
  • Today’s word count; -50
  • Thoughts: I expected to be cutting a lot more from this chapter than I have so far. I can’t decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Continue editing.

February 24

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 93,810
  • Today’s word count: -166
  • Thoughts: Editing this chapter is proving to be a long process, but it’s not a painful one.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More editing. Trying not to let it get to me.

February 25

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 93,666
  • Today’s word count: -144
  • Thoughts: I imagined cutting a lot more words from this chapter than I have so far. It’s still very long, but most of what is written needs to be said.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Even more editing. I seem to reach a point every night when I can’t look over even one more line, and unfortunately I haven’t reached the last line of this chapter just yet.

February 26

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 92,776
  • Today’s word count: -890
  • Thoughts: I spent a long time today cutting words from a monster of a scene written back during NaNoWriMo. I’m almost positive I wrote this during my many, many sprints over the final weekend of that month.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get this chapter posted!

February 27 & 28

No writing progress made. Family emergency.

Everything is on its way back to normal now so I will try to get some posts up, but I’m not holding myself to any sort of schedule just yet. Hopefully I will be back on track with my posts by the weekend.

    • The best I’ve come up with is just continuing to track my daily and project word counts. It’s not particularly encouraging while editing, but I do it for consistency’s sake.
