Writing Progress May 22 – 28, 2017


May 22

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 65,625
  • Today’s word count: 77
  • Thoughts: I did a lot of revising today and got a chapter posted! Finally! I’m so behind on posting chapters this month. It’s shameful.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I’m excited and motivated to get caught up on posting the chapters I was supposed to release this month, but I need to write new words too.

May 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 65,658
  • Today’s word count: 33
  • Thoughts: I’m trying not to focus so much on word counts alone as a sign of progress, but that means I need to take better notes of what I did accomplish during any particular day. Today I spent a lot of time outlining upcoming scenes. I’ve known what needs to happen with Inbetween for years now, but outlining really helps work out the finer points.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Less outlining. More writing. I have chapters that need to be fleshed out!

May 24

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 65,763
  • Today’s word count: 105
  • Thoughts: Not a spectacular writing day. I’m not sure what happened, but I really lacked motivation. I hate days like this.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing. Revising. Outlining. Let’s do anything and everything.

May 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 66,320
  • Today’s word count: 557
  • Thoughts: Better. I feel like I’m getting back on track.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Keep it up! I know I can do it!

May 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 67,128
  • Today’s word count 808
  • Thoughts: I did it! I kept the writing mojo going for more than one day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Keep the writing train chugging along!

May 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 67,223
  • Today’s word count: 95
  • Thoughts: Well, this wasn’t a great day for writing. Memorial Day weekend stuff happened. It was fun so I won’t consider the day wasted.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try to write. I know I can get work done between doing other things!

May 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 67,920
  • Today’s word count: 697
  • Thoughts: I wrote! I love days like this. Once I can find my groove I can easily pass 500 words in one writing session. Too often lately I’m fighting and struggling to get any words out at all over the course of many attempts. I want more days like this.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing, revising, and possibly other writing related projects that are semi-secret right now.
