Writing Progress March 6 -12, 2017


March 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 42,014
  • Today’s word count: 847
  • Thoughts: I didn’t feel great today, but it was the sort of awful that allowed me to camp out on the couch and type. I don’t want to feel bad ever, but I’d rather be able to write than be stuck in bed.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Feel better (I hope!) and write more!

March 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 42,334
  • Today’s word count: 320
  • Thoughts: I don’t know what happened to make writing so difficult today. I spent most of my writing time crippled by anxiety. This happens sometimes and I only understand why about half the time.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write more! I hope to get past the anxiety I felt today and get back to work.

March 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 43,218
  • Today’s word count: 884
  • Thoughts: Writing! I love days like this. It took me a while to get started, but everything was awesome once I got into it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revision. Writing. I want to do it all!

March 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 43,539
  • Today’s word count: 321
  • Thoughts: Well, I edited a bit and I wrote a bit. Overall it wasn’t a bad day, but I feel like I didn’t do enough of either. That always makes me feel bad about the day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More editing. More writing. No more bad feelings.

March 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 43,684
  • Today’s word count: 145
  • Thoughts: Not the best day of writing I’ve ever had, but not the worst either. I wrote a bit. I finished up the revisions on this week’s chapter. My word count isn’t huge, but I was busy. I also posted the chapter for my patrons as soon as I finished it. I think I’m going to try to do that every week now as a thank you to the people that help fund my writing dreams.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post this week’s chapter and write more!

March 11

No writing progress made.

Migraines kill me. I don’t think there’s much I can do about this kind of missed writing day other than doing my best not to get a migraine.

March 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 44,208
  • Today’s word count: 524
  • Thoughts: This is better! If every day could have word counts like this I wouldn’t complain. I’d strive to do better, but I wouldn’t complain.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I think I can do it as long as I don’t allow myself to become obsessed with the impending snow storm.
