Writing Progress January 16 – 22, 2017


January 16

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 27,100
  • Today’s word count: 610
  • Thoughts: Yay! Writing! I would like to write a bit more than this each and every day, but I’m regaining my writing strength.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! Let’s see if I can cross the 800 word mark for the day. I think I can do it!

January 17

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 28,060
  • Today’s word count: 960
  • Thoughts: Well, I passed the 800 word mark! That’s exciting! I’m feeling pretty good about my writing right now.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I want to see if I can write more than 900 words again tomorrow.

January 18

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 28,518
  • Today’s word count: 458
  • Thoughts: I couldn’t keep up the momentum. My routine got disrupted and it threw things off.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revisions! Thursday is always revision day. I just want to get through the entire chapter in one day again. I made it happen last week and it was such a relief.

January 19

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 28,511
  • Today’s word count: -7
  • Thoughts: Revision days are always hard. I didn’t finish this week’s chapter and that’s frustrating enough, but the work I did is 100% ready to go live on Saturday.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More revisions. Hopefully, I’ll get back to writing.

January 20

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 28,511
  • Today’s word count: 0
  • Thoughts: One of those weird days with no progress one way or the other. Revision does weird things to a word count based progress logs.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try to get the chapter up. I’m feeling a bit disoriented so I’m not sure how that will go.

January 21

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 28,545
  • Today’s word count: 34
  • Thoughts: I really didn’t give writing the time it deserved today. My word count is the result of adding words here and there as I did my final read through of chapter six.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get back on track! Make writing a priority again!

January 22

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 28,794
  • Today’s word count: 249
  • Thoughts: I think I’m getting back on track. I’m writing and I’m sleeping at the normal times again. Next step: remembering what day it is without checking!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! The forecast looks like it will still be grey and rainy so I’ll be staying in and hiding from the weather. At least that means fewer distractions. I could really use some sunshine right now…
