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.
