Writing Progress January 23 -29, 2017


January 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 29,169
  • Today’s word count: 375
  • Thoughts: Well, I managed to write more than yesterday. I just need to keep climbing up until I have a respectable word count again.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I know I can write more words in a day than I have lately.

January 24

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 29,246
  • Today’s word count: 77
  • Thoughts: I’m really disappointed in today’s word count. I allowed myself to become afraid of finishing the scene I was working on and it completely derailed my day writing-wise. It’s something I need to work on moving forward.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I think I managed to push past the part that caused me to be afraid last night, so I’m thinking it should be smooth sailing for a while.

January 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 29,342
  • Today’s word count: 96
  • Thoughts: I’m not sure why I didn’t write more. This week is just weird. I’m stressing out about a lot of things I can’t control and that’s taking energy away from the things I can control. I don’t like it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revisions. Thursday is revision day so I’ll be cleaning up a chapter before I dive back into writing. Maybe the change of pace will do me good.

January 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 29,136
  • Today’s word count: -206
  • Thoughts: Revisions. Whenever I revise a chapter I think it is the hardest thing ever, although I disagree whenever I’m working on writing a first draft. I guess everything is the hardest thing ever in the moment.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More revisions! I’m still working on this chapter. It’s not playing nice.

January 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 29,176
  • Today’s word count: 40
  • Thoughts: Revisions are done! I added a few words here and there and I’m feeling pretty good about the work I did.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post this week’s chapter! Hopefully write more!

January 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 29,444
  • Today’s word count: 268
  • Thoughts: I got the chapter posted and managed to write a bit! No complaints here!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I think I can manage a good deal of progress if I put my mind to it.

January 29

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 29,688
  • Today’s word count: 244
  • Thoughts: Well, I guess I didn’t put my mind into writing enough. I’m not too disappointed because I did make some progress, but it isn’t nearly enough to make me feel satisfied.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I need to pick up the pace and get the story out of my brain and onto the screen.
