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.
