Writing Progress February 12 – 18, 2018


February 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 145,782
  • Today’s word count: 206
  • Thoughts: I seem to be hovering around this word count again. It seems to be the most I can write while being stuck or distracted by preplanning for other projects.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing, revising, and maybe some preplanning too!

February 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 145,887
  • Today’s word count: 105
  • Thoughts: My word count looks less than spectacular, but I feel pretty accomplished. I got a chapter posted (still working on getting back to my usual posting schedule) and I worked on writing a bit. Overall, it could have been a much worse day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I think I can pull it off.

February 14

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 44,989
  • Today’s word count: -1

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 146,136
  • Today’s word count: 249

  • Thoughts: Today was kinda awesome. I feel like I accomplished a lot. I usually hesitate to juggle both my projects in one day. It tends to make me feel off balance and whatever I work on second tends to suffer. That didn’t happen today. I might have to rethink how I organize my days and see if I can replicate this with some consistency.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Tomorrow is the start of a few days of chaos for me. I’m going to do my best not to set any lofty goals and just try to show up and get something done each day.

February 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 146,259
  • Today’s word count: 123
  • Thoughts: Today turned out just about how I expect it to… I was not terribly productive. Outside of writing I got a lot accomplished so I won’t consider the day a waste.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully write a lot more. I think I can do it if I put my mind to it.

February 16

No writing progress made. I gave myself the day off and spent some time hanging out with my best friend. Then I spent the evening watching a movie with my boyfriend. It was a lovely change of pace.

February 17

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 146,273
  • Today’s word count: 14
  • Thoughts: It was hard to get back into writing today. I’ve had an odd sleep schedule lately, or rather a lack of a sleep schedule. My body turned on me and forced me to nap and made me a groggy, unproductive mess when I was awake. Add onto that the snow storm we had yesterday and I was very distracted.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing writing writing. It’s going to happen. I know it.

February 18

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 146,405
  • Today’s word count: 132
  • Thoughts: My word count still isn’t spectacular, but I’m starting to feel like I’m getting back into the story. I suspect that my willingness to take Friday off was probably a sign I was getting a little burned out. I tried to ignore it and suffered the consequences. I’m going to try to take better care of myself going forward.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, but also other creative things to take my mind off writing a bit more than usual.
