Writing Progress April 2 – 8, 2018


April 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 158,315
  • Today’s word count: 106
  • Thoughts: Today was not a productive day. I feel like my will and ability to write is being locked up by the expectations set on me by CampNaNoWriMo. These expectations are self-imposed so I don’t know why I’m allowing it to get to me, but here we are.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get back to writing. I have complete confidence that I can do it. The only thing getting in my way is my own thoughts.

April 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 158,673
  • Today’s word count: 358
  • Thoughts: I seem to be improving. I just hope the improvement keeps up so I can make some real progress this month.
  • Tomorrow’ goal: More writing. I’m confident I can improve on today’s word count if I put my mind to it.

April 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 158,988
  • Today’s word count: 315
  • Thoughts: Yeah. I just wasn’t able to improve upon yesterday’s word count. I don’t know what is wrong with me. I thought CampNaNoWriMo would give me this surging wave of energy that would carry me through at least a week or two of excellent word counts. I guess that could still happen, but I was expecting it at the start of the month. Obviously, I’m not hyped up enough about Camp.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising. Let’s see if I can get some more of draft 3 of The Dreams posted on Patreon!

April 5

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 159,576
  • Today’s word count: 588
  • Thoughts: Today was more productive that any other day this month so far, but I still didn’t accomplish everything I wanted.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. I think I can do it!

April 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 159,919
  • Today’s word count: 343
  • Thoughts: I braced myself for a completely unproductive day, but that didn’t happen. I made a decent amount of progress for a Friday. Yay!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing! Revising! Post a chapter! I can do it!

April 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 160,120
  • Today’s word count: 201
  • Thoughts: Ugh. I thought today would go a lot better than it did. I just had too much going on and even after things settled down I found it hard to focus. I just kept going back and forth in my mind between thinking about my stories and thinking about everything else. Somehow I did manage to get  a chapter posted so there’s that little bit of good work accomplished.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’m positive I can accomplish more tomorrow!

April 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 160,261
  • Today’s word count: 141
  • Thoughts: I went into today ready to have an amazing writing day. It didn’t happen. A migraine started instead. Yay…
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try to stop the migraine and get back to writing. If migraine continues, try not to be miserable.
