Writing Progress September 26 – October 2, 2016


September 26

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 180,003
  • Today’s word count: 101
  • Thoughts: Today was not the big return to writing that I had hoped for. I guess my brain is having trouble switching back to writing after being stuck on revisions for so many days.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get the writing brain properly switched back on.

September 27

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 180,322
  • Today’s word count: 319
  • Thoughts: Better, but not good. I need to write a lot more than this on a daily basis!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Start revising. Get back on track with the writing thing!

September 28

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 180,753
  • Today’s word count: 431
  • Thoughts: I’m slowly building up my word count stamina again. At this point I’m still trying to figure out what is stopping me from reaching the word counts I was hitting earlier this month.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revisions. More writing.

September 29

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 181,290
  • Today’s word count: 537
  • Thoughts: Better. Still not great, but my word counts are getting better. I wish I knew where all of the energy I had earlier this month went. It disappeared with my migraine and hasn’t returned. I miss it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising because I’m not finished with it. Again.

September 30

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 181,186
  • Today’s word count: -104
  • Thoughts: Revisions. Yay… I don’t know why I’m struggling with revisions lately. I think my lack of vision for the final arc of this story has really messed things up. The only reason I don’t have the vision for the end is because I’m afraid to end the story. So revisions are hard because writing has been hard.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I need to get the chapter posted. That’s my number one priority.

October 1

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 181,123
  • Today’s word count: -63
  • Thoughts: A bit of writing. A bit of revision. It’s not the best start to the month, but I got the chapter posted so I’m trying not to be disappointed.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing. Actual writing!

October 2

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 182,185
  • Today’s word count: 1,062
  • Thoughts: I finally did a thing I told myself I’d do long, long ago. I pulled up Tomato Timer and did some sprints on my own. The first one was a bust but the second one was quite successful. Today’s word count is the result of two sprints!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More sprinting, I think.

  1. I enjoyed reading your post, it’s very honest and I can relate to your struggles! Can I ask a quick question? What is “tomato timer”? It sounds like it worked wonders šŸ™‚
