Writing Progress August 28 – September 3, 2017


August 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 110,242
  • Today’s word count: 719
  • Thoughts: Today was such a productive day! I finished the basic outline for the third draft of The Dreams. I also wrote more of Inbetween. I can’t believe everything I accomplished. I’m feeling great.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, of course. I also need to work on fleshing out the new outline for The Dreams. The skeleton is there, but there’s plenty left to add to it.

August 29

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 110,982
  • Today’s word count: 740
  • Thoughts: It took forever for me to start writing today. I had much better luck with outlining The Dreams. I wonder if switching gears is the problem…
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More outlining. More writing. Let’s see if I can figure out if there’s a disconnect happening from trying to do both every day.

August 30

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 111,482
  • Today’s word count: 500
  • Thoughts: Writing was so hard today! I finally pushed me way through it and got to work. It was worth it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Thursday is revision day. I have a lot of work ahead of me. Hopefully I’ll have time to write too.

August 31

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 111,489
  • Today’s word count: 7
  • Thoughts: My word count looks miserable, but I worked hard to earn it. I spent my writing time today on editing and I didn’t finish what I set out to do. My back decided to start acting up and dealing with that slowed me down a lot.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish up the chapter and get back to writing new stuff as soon as possible!

September 1

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 111,499
  • Today’s word count: 10
  • Thoughts: I spent another day revising this week’s chapter. I wish I knew what was taking me so long this week. I hope it was just a case of a difficult chapter and not a sign of a change in my general writing flow.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post the chapter (finally done!) and get back to writing. I miss writing so much.

September 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 111,702
  • Today’s word count: 203
  • Thoughts: It’s better, but not great. Holiday weekends are not known for getting me back on track.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try the writing thing again!

September 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 112,416
  • Today’s word count: 714
  • Thoughts: I finally wrote a decent number of words! My only regret for the day is that I didn’t find more time to work on my reread/note taking for The Dreams. I’m finding it hard to be patient. I really want to start draft 3, but I know it will be better if I’m a bit more prepared. I want this draft to be consistent from start to finish.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing. Reading/note taking. More writing. I know I can do it!
