Writing Progress May 29 – June 4, 2017


May 29

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 67,953
  • Today’s word count: 33
  • Thoughts: My word count looks pitiful. It is pitiful. I didn’t spend a ton of time actually writing, but I did revise so my time was not entirely spent staring blankly at a blinking cursor.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I want to write so much. I just need to find a way to make it actually happen. I won’t give up!

May 30

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 68,289
  • Today’s word count: 336
  • Thoughts: Writing! I did write more today, but I’m much more excited about the progress I’ve made toward another project related to my writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write write write write!

May 31

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 68,649
  • Today’s word count: 360
  • Thoughts: Writing happened. It wasn’t as much as I would have liked, but I did write and that’s what counts.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing! Revising! Other project stuff?

June 1

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 68,809
  • Today’s word count: 160
  • Thoughts: I had a very busy day. I did get some writing done, which is great. I also worked on another writing related project that I should be able to discuss in greater detail soon. I also picked strawberries today! img_20170601_202648_978
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! More revision! More everything!

June 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 69,289
  • Today’s word count: 480
  • Thoughts: Well, I wrote! Today was another off and on day. I had enough “on” time that I made a reasonable amount of progress. I can’t complain.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Tomorrow is one of several local yardsale days that always seem to happen in June so I will be out of the house for quite a while. I love looking at all the stuff people have for sale, but the real reason I’m excited is french fries. There’s always carnival food at the larger community yardsales.

June 3

I come home from the yardsales and was too tired to think or write or anything. I’ll try again tomorrow after sleep!

June 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 69,422
  • Today’s word count: 133
  • Thoughts: I didn’t write much, but I did write. I also spent a lot of time sitting and thinking. Thinking is such an important part of writing, but it is hard to quantify and it is even harder to determine the quality of the thinking.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing! I know I can do it. I might work on revising as well. We won’t know until I try!
