Writing Progress June 13 – 19, 2016


June 13

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 123,035
  • Today’s word count: 120
  • Thoughts: This was not the productive writing day I had hoped for. I had such a hard time getting my thoughts out of my head and onto the screen. It felt like an idea bottle neck.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get the ideas out so I can start writing properly again.

June 14

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 123,393
  • Today’s word count: 358
  • Thoughts: Definitely better than yesterday, but still not great. I would like to get at least 500 words per day right now.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Start revising the next chapter.

June 15

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 123,649
  • Today’s word count: 256
  • Thoughts: Today was not the epic writing day I wanted and I’m going to blame that entirely on my entirely too short night of sleep. Four hours of sleep is not enough for me to do anything productive. It’s a miracle I didn’t just hide in bed all day looking to make up for the sleep I lost.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Sleep. Write. Revise. Should be easy enough, right?

June 16

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 123,814
  • Today’s word count: 165
  • Thoughts: I wrote a bit, and I revised more than half of Saturday’s chapter. Feeling pretty good about my progress today.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish revising Saturday’s chapter and then back to writing!

June 17

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 123,810
  • Today’s word count: -4
  • Thoughts: I did so much revising! I wrote a bit, but still ended the day with less words than I started.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post the chapter! Write? I hope I can find the time to write. I can’t have another weekend without writing.

June 18

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 123,866
  • Today’s word count: 56
  • Thoughts: Tiny, tiny word count for a busy, busy day. I got the latest chapter posted though!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get back to writing. I need something more than a double digit word count.

June 19

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 124,654
  • Today’s word count: 788
  • Thoughts: I had a really good writing day! I even got stuck and unstuck myself in about five minutes.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More of the same, please!
