Writing Progress June 27 – July 3, 2016


June 27

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 127,881
  • Today’s word count: 674
  • Thoughts: Yay! Words! I’m pretty happy with today’s writing. I searched for my courage, found it, and tried something new. It worked! I’m hoping it turns into a very successful scene down the road.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Possibly work on getting things organized for CampNaNoWriMo.

June 28

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 128,301
  • Today’s word count: 420
  • Thoughts: I wanted to write more, but my attention span had other ideas. I think I need writing buddies to keep me on task. It also really hit me today that I need to solidify my scene-by-scene plans for the rest of The Dreams if I want to stand a chance of finishing it in July.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Time to revise too!

June 29

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 128,372
  • Today’s word count: 71
  • Thoughts: Today was just one of those days where I felt blocked and didn’t have the motivation to get over it. I ended up reading and goofing off online more than anything.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish revisions on Saturday’s chapter, post teaser, add more scene cards in preparation for Camp, write! Busy!

June 30

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 128,344
  • Today’s word count: -28
  • Thoughts: Lots and lots of revision while I waited for CampNaNoWriMo to start.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: CampNaNoWriMo! I have so much writing to do!


July 1

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 128,771
  • Today’s word count: 437
  • Thoughts: Finished my revisions on this week’s chapter and made a (very poor) start for my CampNaNoWriMo word count.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post the next chapter. Write! I have so much writing to do…

July 2

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 130,083
  • Today’s word count: 1302
  • Thoughts: I went to a write in today! It was great! I wrote! Then I meant to write later in the day and only managed two dozen words before I got too sleepy and went to bed early.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More of the writing thing.

July 3

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 130,167
  • Today’s word count: 84
  • Thoughts: A really, really wimpy day of writing. I just couldn’t find my focus. I’d sit down and write about a dozen words and then just stare at the screen. I tried several times with the same result. I’m a bit disappointed.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. A lot more words, please.
