Writing Progress October 9 – 15, 2017


October 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 123,029
  • Today’s word count: 726
  • Thoughts: Writing happened today. It was great. I only wish I would have done more NaNo prep, but I didn’t want to leave Inbetween once I started.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing. Prep. I really want to make progress with both in one day, please.

October 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 123,189
  • Today’s word count: 160
  • Thoughts: My word count doesn’t look too spectacular today, but I made a good bit of progress with my notes for The Dreams so I still consider today a success.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revision. Writing. NaNo prep? I think I can do it all, but time will tell.

October 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 123,765
  • Today’s word count: 576
  • Thoughts: Writing and revision went really well today! I just wish I’d done more in the way of NaNo prep. This week that has been my greatest challenge. I want to be prepared, but that work keeps getting brushed to the side in favor of work on Inbetween and non-writing life things.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Wrap up this week’s revisions. More writing. Much more NaNo prep. I know I can do it. I just need to remain focused.

October 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 123,726
  • Today’s word count: -39
  • Thoughts: Revisions are taking forever. Again. Some weeks the revision process is easy, but more often than not, it’s a struggle. I didn’t get much else done today because I spent all my time fiddling with the words in this week’s chapter.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish revisions. Write! NaNo Prep!

October 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 123,717
  • Today’s word count: -9
  • Thoughts: Revision, revision, revision. This week has been really rough revision-wise. I’m falling behind on my other writing obligations and that’s significantly more frustrating than just dealing with a difficult chapter.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get this week’s chapter posted so I can put it behind me and switch my focus back to other writing-related tasks.

October 14

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 123,698
  • Today’s word count: -19
  • Thoughts: I was busy, busy, busy today. I didn’t do as much writing-related work as I would have liked, but I can’t complain because I had a great day. I can make up for missed writing time.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More NaNo prep. I can do this!

October 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 123,808
  • Today’s word count: 110
  • Thoughts: I had a productive day. I worked through rereading more of The Dreams and took notes. Later, I wrote a bit of Inbetween. I wish I could have done more, but I just didn’t have the energy to do more.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More NaNo prep. More writing. I can do it!
