Writing Progress July 18 – 24, 2016


July 18

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 139,995
  • Today’s word count: 408
  • Thoughts: Not the epic, amazing writing day I expected. I really struggled to write any words and all and I’m not entirely sure why. I finally finished working on a scene that had been a great source of anxiety for me, but moving on to another scene was not enough to get my word count up.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. So much writing.

July 19

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 140,091
  • Today’s word count: 96
  • Thoughts: Another lackluster writing day. All sorts of activities distracted me over the day and just when I thought I would get in some writing late at night – and after I got myself a caffeinated drink to help me stay up – a migraine attacked.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Stop the migraine. Write. Start revisions.

July 20

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 140,893
  • Today’s word count: 802
  • Thoughts: While today was a huge improvement over the last few days, I’m still not hitting NaNoWriMo level word counts.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revisions. Writing. Post this week’s chapter teaser for my Patrons.

July 21

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 141,613
  • Today’s word count: 720
  • Thoughts: Considering I spent the majority of my normal writing day revising this week’s chapter, I’m quite pleased with today’s word count.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully a lot more writing.

July 22

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 142,057
  • Today’s word count: 444
  • Thoughts: Overall it was just not a good day. I didn’t get enough sleep and it really messed with my ability to be productive.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! Write so much, and stay cool. We’re having another heatwave.

July 23

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 142,574
  • Today’s word count: 521
  • Thoughts: During a non-NaNoWriMo month I usually want to hit a minimum of 500 words a day so I can’t really complain about any day I write more than 500 words.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Stay cool (this heatwave is the worst). Keep writing.

July 24

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 143,017
  • Today’s word count: 443
  • Thoughts: Not an amazingly high word count, but I’m pretty proud of it. It’s hard to find the will to do anything in this heat.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try to write. Survive the heatwave… with no AC this summer it’s an extra challenge.
