Writing Progress May 21 – 27, 2018

daily writing progress

May 21

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 173,175
  • Today’s word count: 541
  • Thoughts: I didn’t really get into writing until pretty late in the day. I tried, but it just didn’t click until after the sun went down.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I know what I need to write. It should be easy!

May 22

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 173,662
  • Today’s word count: 487
  • Thoughts: Today was strange. I write a little bit during the day and then really hit my stride before bed. Then my back started hurting so I had to leave my desk. I ended up writing in bed, but even that was more than a little painful.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Figure out how to write without aggravating my back more. I’m not sure what I did to make it angry in the first place so keeping my back happy all day might be difficult.

May 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 173,934
  • Today’s word count: 266

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 45,523
  • Today’s word count: -3

  • Thoughts: Today was a pretty productive day. I got another chunk of The Dreams cleaned up and posted over on Patreon and I worked on Inbetween too.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revising time! I feel like I’m ready and able to make revisions on schedule for once this week.

May 24

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 174,032
  • Today’s word count: 98

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 46,129
  • Today’s word count: 606

  • Thoughts: I was worried today wouldn’t be productive. It just didn’t feel right when I got started. Then I dove into revising this week’s chapter and everything clicked into place. For revising, at least. After the revising was done, I was stuck again. I had to switch project to really get writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’m not picky about which project either. I just want to get writing done.

May 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 174,071
  • Today’s word count: 39
  • Thoughts: Typical Friday. I had too much on my plate to get much writing done. I had fun, though. That has to count for something… just not in a measurable way.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get this week’s chapter posted and get back to writing all the words.

May 26

  • Project: The Dreams character study/fluff
  • Total word count: 753

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 174,098
  • Today’s word count: 27

  • Thoughts: Today was pretty productive. I posted a chapter. Then I worked on a character study thing for The Dreams. My only regret is that I barely touched Inbetween.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. It’s a holiday weekend and it’s hot here so I’m trying not to be too ambitious.

May 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 174,268
  • Today’s word count: 170
  • Thoughts: I managed to write a little, but it took me forever to get into the mindset to make it work.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I need to write more. The first step is to get into the writing mindset earlier in the day. Hopefully I can find a way to make that happen.

daily writing progress

May 14

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 170,725
  • Today’s word count: 500
  • Thoughts: Today was pretty productive once I sat down and forced myself to focus. Before that I was a mess. It was hard to concentrate.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. May 15, 2018 will be day 1,000 of me tracking my writing daily!

May 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 171,248
  • Today’s word count: 523
  • Thoughts: It might not have been my biggest word count day, but it seems like a fitting number of words for the 1000th day of me tracking my word count from one day to the next. It’s slightly above my average and an amount I consider to be perfectly acceptable.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I know I can do it.

May 16

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 171,405
  • Today’s word count: 157
  • Thoughts: Today did not go as I planned at all. I wanted to write a ton of words, but I woke up with a headache that just kept coming back every time I thought I had chased it away for good.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising. As long as the headache doesn’t chase me down I should be able to do it.

May 17

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 172,116
  • Today’s word count: 711
  • Thoughts: I was really worried that I wouldn’t write much today. Then, right before bed I decided to try changing things up. Instead of writing at my desk, I took my laptop and wrote in bed. It worked! I wrote plenty.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing and hopefully I will manage to get this week’s chapter revised and posted on Patreon a day early.

May 18

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 172,120
  • Today’s word count: 4

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 45,337
  • Today’s word count: 71

  • Thoughts: Today was pretty productive while still being a typical Friday. I got this week’s chapter of Inbetween revised and I worked on The Dreams a little bit as well.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I need to get this week’s chapter posted and keep on writing.

May 19

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 45,526
  • Today’s word count: 189
  • Thoughts: Today was an interesting day. I got a chapter posted! I worked on the new draft of The Dreams. I did a lot of stuff that wasn’t writing like playing a game and going outside. Overall, it was a pretty good Saturday.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I have no where to go so I can put my focus on writing.

May 20

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 172,634
  • Today’s word count: 514
  • Thoughts: Today was about as productive as I thought it would be. I’m pretty pleased with myself. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to write as much as I wanted today. There was a lot going on to distract me, but I got past it and made the words happen.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I should be able to do it. I have plenty of time.

May 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 168,125
  • Today’s word count: 639
  • Thoughts: Today was a pretty productive day. It took me a long time to get the words, not because I was distracted, but because the words were constantly trickling out. These sorts of days are pretty great.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I know I can do it!

May 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 168,445
  • Today’s word count: 320
  • Thoughts: Today was not the day I hoped for. I wanted to have a fantastic, productive writing day, but I got a monster of a headache instead. I tried to write, but I didn’t get as far as I had hoped.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. If I can manage to feel better, I think I can do it.

May 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 168,588
  • Today’s word count: 143

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 45,266
  • Today’s word count: 2

  • Thoughts: Today did not go like I hoped. I spent a lot of time acting as tech support while trying to get my boyfriend’s computer up and running. I managed to do some revising done while fighting with Windows, but I could not focus on writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing and some more revising!

May 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 169,153
  • Today’s word count: 565
  • Thoughts: Today was a bit better, but I’m still not totally thrilled with what I accomplished. I should be happy. I wrote. I just don’t like how hard it was to get myself to start writing. It make me nervous for tomorrow.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. Let’s hope for a better than average Friday!

May 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 169,975
  • Today’s word count: 822
  • Thoughts: Today was not a typical Friday in any way. I was busy. I was productive. It was awesome. I wish more days could be like this.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Wrap up revisions and get this week’s chapter posted! I know I can do it. I just hope I can write after I get all that work done.

May 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 170,021
  • Today’s word count: 46
  • Thoughts: Today was a bit of a strange day. I wrapped up my revisions for this week’s chapter and got it posted. Then I tried to write and spent most of my time distracted by my wandering mind. I wanted to focus, but there were too many stray thoughts in my head to settle on one thing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to focusing on writing. I know I can do it. There’s plenty of story to be told. I just need to write it down.

May 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 170,225
  • Today’s word count: 204
  • Thoughts: Today was not the greatest writing day ever. It took a lot of effort to get started and when I did, my writing was still crawling along. I won’t complain about progress, though, and I did make progress today.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’m positive I can make a ton of words happen if I put my mind to it.

  • Total word count: 165,640
  • Today’s word count: 38

  • Project: The Dreams character study/fluff
  • Word count: 1,497

  • Thoughts: I took some time to write by hand today and once again it proved to be really productive. I wish that I felt confident I could transcribe everything in a timely manner. Then I might feel comfortable working on more of my main project by hand. I hate trying to type up my own writing, though. I get ahead of myself and manage to skip a lot of words.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I feel confident I can make it happen after the great day I had today.

May 1

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 166,171

  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully I can keep the good writing mojo going.

May 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 166,563

May 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 166,778
  • Today’s word count: 215
  • Thoughts: Today was not the great writing day I hoped to have. The surprise jump to summer weather around here drained me of energy. I napped. I tried to keep cool. I didn’t get nearly as much done as I would have liked.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. Let’s see if I can have a fantastic Friday!

May 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 166,894

May 5

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 167,199
  • Today’s word count: 305
  • Thoughts: Today was okay. It could have been better, of course, but I think it could have been a lot worse. I had a fairly busy day and still managed to find time to write!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Get the chapter posted (only a little bit late).

May 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 167,486
  • Today’s word count: 287
  • Thoughts: I did what I set out to do! I’m pretty proud of that. Now I just have to hope everyone enjoys the new chapter.
