Writing Progress December 25 – 31, 2017


December 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 137,060
  • Today’s word count: 682
  • Thoughts: Today turned out to be a lot more productive than I thought. It wasn’t what I expected, but I’ll take it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Let’s see if I can get this past due chapter posted. Finally!

December 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 137,094
  • Today’s word count: 34
  • Thoughts: Today was chaos. The only good thing was that I got a chapter posted. Unfortunately, I didn’t get much done outside of revising and formatting that chapter.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write more. Make up for the bad writing days.

December 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 137,227
  • Today’s word count: 133
  • Thoughts: Today was not the best writing day I’ve ever had. I found myself incredibly distracted for most of the day. I fought hard to get the words that I did so at least I know I tried.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. Let’s go!

December 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 137,418
  • Today’s word count: 191
  • Thoughts: I don’t know why writing is going so slow these days. I think that the holidays have really thrown me off my routine. Once I can make a new routine I should be fine.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing. Revising. Let’s get back on schedule!

December 29

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 137,570
  • Today’s word count: 152
  • Thoughts: Ugh. Today could have been so much better, but I just didn’t have that spark of inspiration to sustain the initial motivation.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More of the same. Let’s hope I can get inspired and really make things work for me. Wanting to write only works well when you know what you want to write.

December 30

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 137,868
  • Today’s word count: 298
  • Thoughts: Ugh. I have a cold. It’s a nightmare. I can’t concentrate and I get frustrated easily.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try not to be sick anymore. Maybe get a chapter posted before the month is over.

December 31

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 197,911
  • Today’s word count: 43
  • Thoughts: Well, I’m not surprised that today didn’t go the greatest. I did wake up feeling a bit better, but we had a party for the new year to host. I might have managed to write more, if the circumstances were different, but I have no regrets.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’ll be a new year. I should probably have some huge, new goals, but I just want to write. I’d love to get back on track with bigger word counts on a regular basis and I think January 1st is a great day to start moving toward that goal.
