Writing Progress August 1 – 7, 2016

DailyWritingProgress

August 1

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 145,988
  • Today’s word count: 335
  • Thoughts: It was hardly a spectacular writing day. I started off staring at my blinking cursor and feeling complete devoid of words. I took a break and played a game and then I dove back in and managed to write a bit before bed.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: So much more writing.

August 2

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 146,507
  • Today’s word count: 519
  • Thoughts: I feel like I’m back on track word count-wise. I feel so much better on days I write at least 500 words. That said, I did have a writing related setback today. My giant of a cat, Josh, decided to take a nap on my keyboard, snapping the legs and somehow also bowing the plastic body of the keyboard. The keyboard is still usable, but in sorry shape. Thanks to my lovely patrons support I was able to order a replacement keyboard which will arrive on Thursday.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Maybe editing?

August 3

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 146,733
  • Today’s word count: 226
  • Thoughts: Not a lot of writing. It’s not the most fun or easy thing in the world with the wobbly old keyboard. I did a bit of revising too!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revisions! Writing! I’m hopefully for a spectacularly productive day.

August 4

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 147,942
  • Today’s word count: 1,209
  • Thoughts: My new keyboard arrived today! I wrote and wrote and wrote because the new keyboard is amazing! It helped that I knew exactly what needed to be written in this particular scene and I could just go with it. I also finished revising this week’s chapter today. Yay! Super productive day!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Keep the streak going.

August 5

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 149,247
  • Today’s word count: 1,315
  • Thoughts: Lots and lots of writing! I am loving my new keyboard and I am really loving the place I am in the story right now.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post this week’s chapter! Write!

August 6

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 149,671
  • Today’s word count: 424
  • Thoughts: It was a weird day, but I did manage to get some writing time in and that’s enough to keep me happy.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully a lot more writing.

August 7

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 150,412
  • Today’s word count: 741
  • Thoughts: Well, this novel is over 150,000 words long now. When I started out I thought the story would be finished around this word count. A while ago I revised that to 200,000 words and I think that was the right decision. There’s still plenty of story to go.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully a lot more writing.
