Writing Progress January 1 – 7, 2018


January 1

No writing progress made. I intended to write today, but I couldn’t make it happen. Since it’s technically a holiday, I didn’t try to force it.

January 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 137,945
  • Today’s word count: 34
  • Thoughts: I tried. Today was a really hard day. A migraine knocked me out of the game for most of the day, and when I finally sat down to try to write some words much later in the day, I was too mentally drained to put much effort in.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write more. I don’t care how I make it happen. I need to write.

January 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 138,299
  • Today’s word count: 354
  • Thoughts: Better. Not great, but better. I can improve from here.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising. I want to do it all.

January 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 138,404
  • Today’s word count: 105
  • Thoughts: I had a lot of trouble with anxiety today and my writing paid the price. I couldn’t focus as much as I’d hoped. It was a disappointing day in many ways.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Make up for Thursday by being more awesome than usual.

January 5

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 138,456
  • Today’s word count: 52
  • Thoughts: Well, I revised a little. I wrote very little. It just wasn’t a good day. I was cold and generally miserable most of the day. It didn’t lead to me being very focused on any one thing. I need to figure out how to be more productive.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Wrap up revising, write, get this week’s chapter posted. Let’s hope I can do it!

January 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 138,527
  • Today’s word count: 71
  • Thoughts: I still haven’t found my mojo. I don’t know exactly how I lost it, but it’s been missing pretty consistently since the end of NaNoWriMo. Worrying about it only makes it worse so I think it might be stress related. I wish I had a big enough backlog to take a week off from writing, but the holidays burned through the tiny backlog I had left.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try to write. Try to revise. Try to get the chapter posted.

January 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 138,682
  • Today’s word count: 155
  • Thoughts: Well, today was not as great as I hoped it would be. I can’t seem to catch a break lately. I don’t know how much of it is environmental and how much of it is in my head, but I’m having some serious issues getting my work done these days. Today’s biggest hiccup: one of my monitors started malfunctioning. Yes, I could still write with just one monitor, but I can’t leave something alone when I think I could fix it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Finally get this chapter posted. It’s been long enough!

  1. It seems like you had a rough week, but that’s okay! There’s always next week and you need to take care of yourself as well. I hope you’re feeling better. 🙂


    • Thanks!

      I’m sure things will get better. Getting sick during the holidays was just more than I could plan for. Things are looking up. I know I’ll be back on track soon.
