Writing Progress October 30 – November 5, 2017


October 30

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 127,282
  • Today’s word count: 20
  • Thoughts: My word count looks pitiful, but I did a ton of NaNo prep. There’s still a ton to do with only a day left, but I think I can get it all done after the progress I made today.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Wrap up NaNo prep. Write a bit of Inbetween. Wait for NaNoWriMo.

October 31

The day was dedicated to NaNoWriMo prep and it was so worth it. I’m set and ready to go!

November 1

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 2,012
  • Today’s word count: 2,012
  • Thoughts: Not a bad start to NaNoWriMo, in my opinion. I’ve had worse starts in the past.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More NaNoWriMo writing. Revising Inbetween for Saturday. Fixing up some scenes from The Dreams to post on Patreon. It’s going to be a busy day and I think tomorrow will set the tone for the rest of the month.

November 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 127,321
  • Today’s word count: 39

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,144
  • Today’s word count: 2,132

  • Thoughts: Today was a productive day! I got a chapter revised for Saturday and then after a lot of delaying and deliberation I worked on The Dreams as well. I’m still struggling with feeling like I need to make this new draft perfect. I can break through that feeling, but it takes a bit of effort.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! Going into the first weekend of NaNoWriMo it looks like I can actually pull ahead. I have friends to sprint with and hopefully some extra accountability will make it possible to have my best first weekend of NaNo ever.

November 3

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 5,471
  • Today’s word count: 1,327
  • Thoughts: Today’s word count is less spectacular than the first two days of NaNoWriMo. This was the first day of the month I had to go out of the house to run errands and that always throws off my writing mojo.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post a chapter. Write write write for NaNoWriMo!

November 4

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 6,672
  • Today’s word count: 1,201
  • Thoughts: Today was a weird day. Still productive, but weird. I’ve been groggy and sort of unmotivated, so getting started was a huge, huge problem.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Use the 25 hour day to my advantage. Get ahead again!

November 5

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 8,381
  • Today’s word count: 1,709
  • Thoughts: Getting started took forever today(let’s blame the time change), but once I got started it was great! I feel like I’m really making progress this week, but there so much left to do!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. So much more writing!
