  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 56,766
  • Today’s word count: 549
  • Thoughts: Well, it wasn’t an improvement on Monday’s word count. I was struggling today. The words just didn’t want to flow today. I feel like I worked harder to write fewer words. That’s never fun.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I hope I can get past the problems I’m having and get the words out.

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 56,899
  • Today’s word count: 133
  • Thoughts: Today was not a good day. I did not sleep well and it came back to bite me almost instantly. My mind and body were both rebelling against me all day and I just could not muster the energy to make writing happen.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revise. Write. Sleep. I need all these things equally.

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 56,890
  • Today’s word count: -9
  • Thoughts: Revisions are the worst thing ever for my word count. Not only that, but the chapter I’m revising this week was written while I wasn’t feeling well and it is full of sick!Bridgett logic. Lots of repetition and faulty logic to correct. Yay!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish up this week’s revisions and get back to writing (hopefully) coherent words.

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 56,786
  • Today’s word count: -104
  • Thoughts: More cutting and revisions and I’m still not done. It’s not that this chapter is bad, it’s just unorganized. Going through and organizing it is taking quite a while.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Wrap up edits. Post the chapter. Write! I miss writing…

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 56,876
  • Today’s word count: 90
  • Thoughts: I wrote! I posted a chapter! I did a ton of other stuff around the house. I’m exhausted, but I’m happy.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Do Easter stuff. Write before I crash from the sugar.

No writing progress made. It was Easter. I spent time with my family and relaxed. I hope this will mean I can return to writing with renewed energy tomorrow.
