Writing Progress November 21 – 27, 2016


November 21

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 205,364
  • Today’s word count: 204
  • Thoughts: I didn’t write nearly as much as I would like to or should during NaNoWriMo. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I thought I got over this slump back during week 2, but it seems to be back again. Maybe I’m just not good at writing on the weekends and need a day or two to get back into it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. A lot more writing. I will need a lot of extra words per day to catch up now.

November 22

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 207,015
  • Today’s word count: 1,679
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t a perfect writing day, but I did manage to get my daily minimum for NaNoWriMo written. It took forever. I was writing something I really didn’t want to write (and had been putting off for months if I’m honest). Now it is written and I can finally move on.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I still have a lot of catching up to do. I need to at least make 1,667 words every day for the rest of the month.

November 23

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 207,106
  • Today’s word count: 91
  • Thoughts: Well, I got a chapter posted, but it killed my ability to write for the day. That might just be an excuse, but I’m sticking to it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Thanksgiving! We’ll see how much writing I get done. I am going to eat with family at my aunt’s house, but I’ll be home in the morning and I’ll have all evening to write if I have the energy.

November 24

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 207,145
  • Today’s word count: 39
  • Thoughts: Thanksgiving. I wanted to write, but after eating and spending time with my family I needed the rest of the day to just rest and decompress.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! I don’t have anywhere I need to be so I should be able to write lots of words.

November 25

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 207,308
  • Today’s word count: 163
  • Thoughts: I’m so frustrated with myself and with my health. I can’t seem to coordinate free time, motivation and physical well being this month. If I’m lucky I have two out of three, but I need all three to get stuff done. Short version: migraine.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Kick the migraine. Write!

November 26

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 208,119
  • Today’s word count: 811
  • Thoughts: The migraine continues. I tried to push through it and write anyway, but I was only partially successful.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Continue battling the migraine and hopefully write even more. I’m falling further behind and I need to cushion the blow as much as possible in the final days since my health has decided to be less than perfect.

November 27

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 208,847
  • Today’s word count: 728
  • Thoughts: End of migraine + computer problems = less writing than I’d like.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! I have so much writing left to do for NaNoWriMo and only 3 days to fit it in. This is pretty much the same story as every year, but I can only pull off a win about 50% of the time. We’ll see what happens this year. I’m still fairly optimistic.
