Writing Progress October 10 – 16, 2016


October 10

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 186,938
  • Today’s word count: 233
  • Thoughts: I did write more than yesterday, but I want to be back on track with my word counts already! I’m trying to cut myself a bit of slack because I’m not feeling 100% but I need to write more than anything else right now.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get back on track with the writing.

October 11

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 188,457
  • Today’s word count: 1,519
  • Thoughts: You know, sometimes I saw I need to write a lot and I actually manage to do it. Those are the good days. Today was a good day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: A little revision and more of the same with writing.

October 12

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 190,023
  • Today’s word count: 1,566
  • Thoughts: Wow. I don’t know how I did it. I had to stay up late to get the words, but I did it and here I am. It’s shocking. I’m exhausted, but it’s a good kind of exhausted.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revision. More writing. I want to keep this streak going!

October 13

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 190,649
  • Today’s word count: 626
  • Thoughts: Not as spectacular of a word count as I would like. I did write plenty and I’m pretty happy with the progress I made, but I got distracted a lot today and hit a mental roadblock pretty late at night. Instead of staying up and trying to fight it, I decided to go to sleep and try again in the morning.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More of the writing thing. Continue to get this week’s chapter ready for posting.

October 14

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 190,967
  • Today’s word count: 318
  • Thoughts: Crappy, crappy writing day. I don’t know what happened. I guess I just didn’t work out the knot in the scene like I’d hoped.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Keep writing. Post chapter.

October 15

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 191,534
  • Today’s word count: 567
  • Thoughts: The pattern of having stuff come up over the weekend that distracts or takes me away from my writing continues. I can’t complain too much because I know these distractions are about the only thing I have going on to keep my life from being endless monotony, but combined with my self-imposed deadlines these weekend distractions really stress me out.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Actually get this week’s chapter posted. More writing. So much more writing.

October 16

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 192,316
  • Today’s word count: 782
  • Thoughts: I wrote more today, but not enough. I had the words in me. I could feel them! The problem is that I had those words at 1 a.m. and I did not have the energy to see the ideas that came to my mind all the way through.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. So much more writing. I can only hope that the ideas will still be in the back of my mind waiting for me today.
