Writing Progress July 4 – 10, 2016


July 4

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 131,796
  • Today’s word count: 1,629
  • Thoughts: This was a great writing day! It was a very long day of writing, but it really paid off in the end. It wasn’t enough to get me caught up, but it was more than enough to keep me from falling farther behind.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! Just keep writing!

July 5

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 132,424
  • Today’s word count: 628
  • Thoughts: This would be a great word count for me if this wasn’t July. I’m about 1,000 words short for my daily goal during this month. I can’t be disappointed with progress…
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! Maybe a little revision?

July 6

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 133,193
  • Today’s word count: 769
  • Thoughts: I didn’t hit my Camp word count goal again, but I did write more than yesterday. I just need to keep up the slowly increasing word count.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revising Saturday’s chapter. More writing, of course.

July 7

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 133,337
  • Today’s word count: 144
  • Thoughts: Revisions took up most of my day. I tried to write after, but things happened and sapped my will to write.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write. Just write. I need to get my word count back up.

July 8

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 133,495
  • Today’s word count: 158
  • Thoughts: Not exactly the heroic comeback I’d been hoping for… It wasn’t an ordinary day for me so I’m not going to be too hard on myself for having a low word count.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Posting the new chapter! Possibly going to a CampNaNoWriMo write-in! Getting a decent word count?

July 9

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 134,384
  • Today’s word count: 889
  • Thoughts: It’s amazing how I managed to write so much when I look back and feel utterly overwhelmed by the amount of stuff I did during the day. One of the things I did was go to a write-in, but even so it’s amazing to me.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write. Rest. Write some more.

July 10

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 134,660
  • Today’s word count: 276
  • Thoughts: This was not a particularly productive day writing-wise. I did finish the scene that had been stressing me out so I’m going to count that as an accomplishment.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I hope it will be easier since I’ve moved past the troublesome scene.
