October 4

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 183,451
  • Today’s word count: 7
  • Thoughts: I had an interesting day. I woke up at 5 and went with my mom to an outpatient procedure and spent the day hanging out with her because of anesthesia. Today I also learned that Dropbox is no longer supported on Windows XP so my tiny portable writing machine isn’t synced with my WIP anymore. I spent most of the day reading or too exhausted to write properly. My mom is doing great though so I’m happy about that.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write. Write so much and make up for the lack of writing.

October 5

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 184,084
  • Today’s word count: 633
  • Thoughts: This is better, but still not a great writing day. I’m working on getting back on track with my writing momentum.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing and revising, of course.

October 6

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 184,787
  • Today’s word count: 703
  • Thoughts: I’m getting a little bit closer to reaching my target goal every day!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Keep going! I’m not going to stop until I’m actually back on track!

October 7

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 186,369
  • Today’s word count: 1,582
  • Thoughts: I finally did it! It took me the entire first week of October, but I finally wrote 1,500 words in one day. Now I just need to keep it up.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Oh! And I’ll be posting a chapter. Can you believe The Dreams is up to 45 chapters?!

October 8

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 186,510
  • Today’s word count: 141
  • Thoughts: Today was interesting to say the least. Scrivener was throwing a fit for a while and stopped responding multiple times. I think I lost more than an hour of productivity to straightening that out. I did manage to get this week’s chapter posted though and I wrote a tiny bit too.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully a lot more writing.

October 9

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 186,705
  • Today’s word count: 195
  • Thoughts: I wanted to write a lot today, but I spent time with family instead. I had a great time and I hope it will leave me feeling recharged and ready to make a ton of progress with my writing next week.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing. Lots and lots of writing.
