Writing Progress October 2 – 8, 2017


October 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 121,359
  • Today’s word count: 120
  • Thoughts: My word count is low, but I think I made a lot of progress today. I spent part of my writing time today reading through The Dreams and taking notes. I still haven’t found a way to quantify that.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More reading. More notes. More NaNoWriMo prep!

October 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 121,767
  • Today’s word count: 408
  • Thoughts: Well, that’s a better word count. I think I’m on my way to building up my writing muscles for NaNoWriMo. I have a long way to go this month, though.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revising. More writing. More NaNoPrep.

October 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 121,798
  • Today’s word count: 31
  • Thoughts: Revisions always, always, always make my word count look terrible. I made it through the first two passes of revisions and partway through the third. I can’t consider that any less than a success.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish revising and get back to writing! I’ll hopefully fit in some NaNoPrep time too.

October 5

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 121,894
  • Today’s word count: 96
  • Thoughts: I finished revisions! I’m thrilled! My revisions have been stretching on and on lately and getting it done on Thursday is such a relief.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: NaNoPrep and back to writing.

October 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 122,011
  • Today’s word count: 117
  • Thoughts: Today was not the best day for me writing-wise. I had a strange day overall and it really killed my ability to focus. I tried, but it wasn’t terribly successful.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post this week’s chapter, write more, prep more. I think I can make Saturday a productive day.

October 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 122,190
  • Today’s word count: 179
  • Thoughts: Well, it was a super productive day. I got the chapter posted, and I wrote a little bit, but when I went to write I froze. I don’t know what’s going on with me and this story, but my brain shuts off when I try to write lately. I need to figure this out and fast.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write more than today. I think I can do it.

October 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 122,303
  • Today’s word count: 113
  • Thoughts: Today was a busy day and by the time I was able to sit down and write, I was exhausted. I’m pretty proud of what I did accomplish. Not only did I write a little bit of Inbetween, but I also managed to take some more notes for my rewrite of The Dreams.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More notes. NaNoWriMo isn’t far off and I need to be ready to dive into this new draft of The Dreams on November 1.
