Writing Progress April 25 – May 1, 2016


April 25

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 105,112
  • Monthly word count: 12,268
  • Today’s word count: 621
  • Thoughts: I wrote for a long time, but I wrote very slowly. I need to figure out what is keeping me from making huge word counts happen.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Break through whatever is slowing me down.

April 26

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 105,812
  • Monthly word count: 12,968
  • Today’s word count: 700
  • Thought: Today is a great example of procrastination not working in my favor. I’m getting a cold. The last thing I want to do is have a huge writing marathon, but I didn’t write enough earlier in the month to give myself a break.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully feel better and write.

April 27

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 108,628
  • Monthly word count: 15,811
  • Today’s word count: 2,843
  • Thoughts: I can’t believe I wrote that many words! I know I’ve written many, many more words in a single day in the past, but I did not feel the greatest so it’s a big deal to me. This is my best word count day for the month (so far)!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write more. Try to best today’s word count. Also! Stop feeling sick.

April 28

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 110,338
  • Monthly word count: 17,521
  • Today’s word count: 1,710
  • Thoughts: I still have a cold-thing. I wrote, but not as much as I would have liked. I was hoping to write at least 3,000 words to beat yesterday, but that really didn’t happen.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Lots of writing and definitely not letting my Friday errands mess me up too much.

April 29

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 111,546
  • Monthly word count: 18,729
  • Today’s word count: 1,208
  • Thoughts: Fridays and Saturdays are the most difficult days for writing for me. I kinda wish that the month ended on a different day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get the next chapter posted. Keep writing as much as possible before midnight.

April 30

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 111,644
  • Monthly word count: 18,834
  • Today’s word count: 98
  • Thoughts: I felt really burned out today. I spent more time revising a chapter to post than I did on writing new words. I’m okay with that. I was still spending the day working on my writing. It just wasn’t the part of the writing process I was counting for Camp this year.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Take a break. Go to the Fairie Festival.

May 1

No writing progress made. Took a break and planned to go to the Fairie Festival for May Day, but it was too rainy. Instead I stayed home, played some games, read, and spent time with my pets (including the fish!). Telling myself not to write really made me want to write, but I held out and kept my writing ban until midnight.

Unfortunately I didn’t get anywhere close to my CampNaNoWriMo goal this time. I was hoping to have a new banner to show off this week, but I guess I’ll close out my progress reports for this session of Camp with the same banner. Win or lose, I’ll always participate!

  1. I also didn’t quite make my Camp NaNo goal; I just totally burned out in the last few days of the month. But I’m still glad I made progress. And it looks like you made a lot of good progress as well! 🙂
