Writing Progress May 8 – 14, 2017


May 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 63,047
  • Today’s word count: 360
  • Thoughts: I wrote! I finished up a chapter, revised, and posted it! I can’t believe how productive this day ended up being!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Brainstorm. I’m going to be on the road doing vacationy things until Wednesday afternoon/evening. Writing won’t be much of an option so I’ll try to plan ahead during my down time.

May 9 and 10

I was out of town on vacation! It’s been a while since that happened! I took along my notes in case I had time to read through The Dreams a bit, but we were on the go pretty much all day and when we stopped for the night I didn’t have energy to do much other than read Harry Potter.

May 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 63,111
  • Today’s word count: 64
  • Thoughts: I wrote a bit, but, honestly, my heart wasn’t in it today. I took it easy and played Pokemon with my boyfriend instead. I’m not going to allow myself to feel guilty. This is supposed to be a vacation week and lazing around the house sounds like a vacation to me.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More vacationing. Maybe some writing.

May 12

Last day of proper vacation. I was out and about again. No writing.

May 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 63,233
  • Today’s word count: 122
  • Thoughts: I wrote! It’s something. My writing muscles are really out of shape. Trying to write every day really does make a difference. Just a few days off makes getting back into writing so painful.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I know I can do it. I’ve gotta get my groove back.

May 14

I ended the day with a net gain of 0 words. I was so tired today that I spent most of my writing time staring at the screen and not making sense of the words I’d written yesterday. I’m going to get a good night’s sleep and try again tomorrow. Today I’m just too tired to do anything at all.
