Writing Progress February 6 – 12, 2017


February 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 31,726
  • Today’s word count: 130
  • Thoughts: I have to admit, I’m disappointed in my tiny addition to the project today. I was convinced I would be up late and write a ton then. I ended up going to bed at my normal time and screwed up my own plans. Lesson of the day: write early because you never know when you’ll need to sleep.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! I need to have a great writing day. I have a ton of ideas building up in my brain and I’m afraid I’ll burst!

February 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 32,520
  • Today’s word count: 794
  • Thoughts: This is progress! I’m pretty thrilled with my progress today. After writing all these words I feel motivated to do it again.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I want to write like this every day. More words, please! The more words I write the more words I have to edit and revise later.

February 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 32,721
  • Today’s word count: 201
  • Thoughts: I wrote, but not at much as I would have liked. I’m starting to get sick. I can feel it behind my eyes and in my throat. Feeling like this makes me want to curl up and sleep instead of write.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Be less sick and revise this week’s chapter.

February 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  •  Total word count: 32,720
  • Today’s word count: -1
  • Thoughts: This cold knocked me out of the writing game. I tried to work on revisions but my mind and willpower are barely functioning.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I need to feel better and focus on revising this chapter and getting it out on time. At this point, I’m not counting on it happening. I don’t want to send out a subpar chapter to the world, but I also don’t want to keep people waiting.

February 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 32,652
  • Today’s word count: -68
  • Thoughts: I managed to make some progress on revisions today, but I’m still not done. I’m not sure the work I did is of good quality either. This cold is still kicking my butt and cold meds make me a little loopy.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully finish revisions and get the chapter posted. This might be wishful thinking, but if I’m feeling up to sitting at my desk, I’m going to try.

February 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 31,771
  • Today’s word count: -881
  • Thoughts: Revisions are still taking place. I’m still sick. I’m not sure when I’ll be done cleaning up this chapter.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish revisions. I want to get this chapter posted and get back to writing. Non-writing related goal: stop being sick so I can accomplish my other goals without feeling like I’m dying.

February 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 31,795
  • Today’s word count: 24
  • Thoughts: I managed to get the chapter finished and posted. I’m still pretty sick, but I had enough time feeling halfway to okay today to get some work done.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Continue recovering. Write lots and lots of words to make up for lost time with this cold.
