Writing Progress June 12 – 18, 2017


June 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 72,402
  • Today’s word count: 189
  • Thoughts: I wrote. That’s something. I would have liked to write more, but I feel like I spent most of my time trying to keep cool.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I know I can do it!

June 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 72,657
  • Today’s word count: 255
  • Thoughts: I did it! I wrote! That’s all I wanted to do and I did it and so much more. I got a chapter posted today as well. My word count might not be huge, but I accomplished so much.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I need to keep writing. The one thing I know that kills my mojo these days is skipping days.

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 73,222
  • Today’s word count: 565
  • Thoughts: Writing! Yeah! It took me a while to get going, but when I did, I made progress.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’m liking where the story is going right now, and I know where things are going. Times are good.

June 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 73,728
  • Today’s word count: 506
  • Thoughts: I like writing days like this. If I could write 500-ish words every single day I’d be in great shape. I feel like I need to write more, though, to make up for the really crappy writing days I’ve been having in droves lately.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I know I can do it. There’s a ton of motivation left to propel me forward.

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 73,855
  • Today’s word count: 127
  • Thoughts: Progress is progress. I just did not have the mental energy for much more today.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I have other stuff to do too, but I think I’ll have some time and energy to dedicate to my novel.

June 17

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 74,005
  • Today’s word count: 150
  • Thoughts: I wrote! Considering the sort of day I had, writing at all was an achievement.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! I know I can do it.

No progress made. I hurt my back a couple days ago and today it reached the point where trying to take it easy and let it heal wasn’t cutting it anymore. I couldn’t find a comfortable position for sleep, spent the day exhausted and unable to do much at all. The aggravated muscle seems to be under my left shoulder blade so as a lefty I’m in a bit of trouble.

I’m taking care of myself so I have every confidence I’ll be back to writing soon.
