Writing Progress January 2 – 8, 2017


January 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 22,303
  • Today’s word count: 41
  • Thoughts: I wrote. That’s something. I’m not terribly thrilled with the low word count, but I did have a lot of computer maintenance work to take care of.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I need to get back into the groove of writing a reasonable number of words every day.

January 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 22,720
  • Today’s word count: 417
  • Thoughts: We’re getting back on track! I can build up from this and make some serious daily progress. Let’s make it happen!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Let’s see if I can top 500 words.

January 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 23,388
  • Today’s word count: 668
  • Thoughts: Better! I’m pretty pleased with this word count: I’d still like to do better. It’s something I’ll keep working at. I’d like to get to the point where 4 digit word counts are a regular occurrence.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revision! I have another chapter to post this week after all. Hopefully I can wrap it up quickly and write more too.

January 5

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 23,510
  • Today’s word count: 122
  • Thoughts: I added more words than I thought I would considering I was revising.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish revising the final scene for this week’s chapter and get back to writing new words.

January 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 23,572
  • Today’s word count: 62
  • Thoughts: This just was not my day. The Internet stopped working and still isn’t working. It looks like it won’t be fixed until Monday. For now I’m trying to focus on reading and writing and trying not to think about the fact that I won’t be able to post a chapter this weekend.

January 7

No writing progress made. I don’t know what happened to be honest. I just shut down and played games and watched TV. To be honest, something about not being able to back up my work to the cloud makes me nervous.

January 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 23,583
  • Today’s word count: 11
  • Thoughts: My internet came back tonight! I was excited, overwhelmed and had a lot of catching up to do. I think it showed in my word count.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get caught up! Get the chapter posted! Write so many things!
