Writing Progress June 20 – 26, 2016


June 20

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 125,140
  • Today’s word count: 486
  • Thoughts: 125k! I made it to 125k! I also took the time to add up everything I’ve posted so far and it’s 106k words. I’m barely past my estimated halfway point in terms of posting so I think I’m going to have to up my end estimate from 150k to 200k.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. 126k?

June 21

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 125,510
  • Today’s word count: 370
  • Thoughts: Not as many words as I would have liked. I lost the entire morning to a bunch of drama that was beyond my control. I need to make sure that doesn’t happen again.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! Start revising.

June 22

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 126,046
  • Today’s word count: 536
  • Thoughts: My goal is to try to write 500 words every day, but when I do manage to reach that goal it just does not feel like enough. I’m not hitting 500 words consistently enough to feel like I can up my goal to 1,000 words a day without causing even more frustration. This all might just be impatience to reach the end of the story.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revising and writing. Yippee!

June 23

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 126,546
  • Today’s word count: 500
  • Thoughts: Saturday’s chapter is revised! All that’s left to do is format it for posting. On top of that I wrote 500 new words today. Super productive day. Why can’t every day be like this?
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Don’t let the productivity stop.

June 24

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 126,733
  • Today’s word count: 187
  • Thoughts: It wasn’t the best writing day I’ve had lately, but I’m going to let it slide because it was my boyfriend’s birthday and I wanted to spend time with him.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post the next chapter! Write!

June 25

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 126,894
  • Today’s word count: 161
  • Thoughts: The chapter is posted! I ran out of energy pretty quickly though. Not a lot of writing ended up happening. On a positive note, I did some research!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing, research, and planning?

June 26

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 127,207
  • Today’s word count: 313
  • Thoughts: Well, it’s a higher word count that the last few days, but it still isn’t anywhere close to where I want it to be.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Higher word count. I need to get ready for CampNaNoWriMo. It’s only a few days away now and my writing muscles aren’t nearly in the shape they need to be for that sort of writing every day.
