Writing Progress May 1 – 7, 2017


May 1

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 61,675
  • Today’s word count: 210
  • Thoughts: I wrote more than I thought I would. I’m still sick. Trying to fight it off, but it’s so hard to stay motivated when all I want to do is sleep.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Feel better. Write. Read. I’m trying not to set the bar too high. I want to feel better, not worse.

May 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 61,703
  • Today’s word count: 28
  • Thoughts: Ugh. I’m still not in the best shape. My word count is suffering. I’m behind on housework. I feel like entire days are slipping through my fingers as I try to get a grip. I’m not enjoying this reminder that my health can spiral out of control so easily.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get over this cold so I can get back to my life.

May 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 61,793
  • Today’s word count: 90
  • Thoughts: I’m making myself show up to write every day. It’s not causing me to produce a lot of words, but I’m hoping to at least keep up the habit of a writing routine so I can dive back in when I’m healthy enough to get back into it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! Feel better!

May 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 62,117
  • Today’s word count: 324
  • Thoughts: I was feeling a bit better and it shows in my word count. I think I’m on the right track. I just hope I can keep it going.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! It feels so good to get back to work.

May 5

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 62,314
  • Today’s word count: 197
  • Thoughts: Well, I wrote. I’m trying to get back into the swing of things, but after everything being a wreck from when I was sick it’s really hard.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. If I work really hard I might have this week’s chapter ready for everyone before bedtime tomorrow night.

May 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 62,520
  • Today’s word count: 206
  • Thoughts: Well, I wrote. The next week or so is going to be a bit chaotic. My boyfriend is on vacation right now and his mom and step-dad are visiting. Writing is happening around visiting and doing touristy things.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write!

May 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 62,687
  • Today’s word count: 167
  • Thoughts: I was out and about pretty much all day so I’m just happy I managed to write.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try to write! Let’s keep the ball rolling.
