Writing Progress June 18 – 24, 2018

daily writing progress

June 18

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 176,570
  • Today’s word count: 106
  • Thoughts: I wrote! It’s something. After taking two days off when I didn’t really intend to do so, I’m just happy to be getting some words down again.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully a lot more.

June 19

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 176,595
  • Today’s word count: 25
  • Thoughts: Today was not what I thought it would be. I ended up having a lot of non-writing activities that took up most of my time and energy. Once I sat down to write I was too tired to do much more than fix up a bit of a scene I’d written last week.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I know I can do it. As long as I keep trying I will get my writing mojo back.

June 20

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 176,785
  • Today’s word count: 190
  • Thoughts: Today was slightly more productive. I was still hurt by my sudden change in sleep schedule. I need to adapt to not staying up half the night to get my writing done since staying up that late seems impossible now.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising, I hope.

June 21

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 177,132
  • Today’s word count: 347
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t bad. I managed to stay up a bit later and do some of my usual night writing and it is reflected in my word count. Hopefully I can keep up this trend of improvement.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising. I want to do a bit of everything, but it’s Friday so there’s a good chance I’ll be distracted and do next to nothing with my writing.

June 22

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 177,343
  • Today’s word count: 211
  • Thoughts: Today was better than a typical Friday. I got a lot of work done. I wrote and I got a chapter revised. I really can’t complain, although I’d love to get more done.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Post a chapter! More writing! I think I can pull it off.

June 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 177,514
  • Today’s word count: 171
  • Thoughts: My word count isn’t spectacular, but I did get a chapter posted and had a wonderful day out of the house and away from my keyboard. That’s been happening more often lately with the weather being nice, but I think it is a positive thing in the long run. I might not be writing, but I am experiencing and I can use those experiences later.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I shouldn’t have much else to do so hopefully I can sit down and really focus on producing some words I can be proud of later.

June 24

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 177,955
  • Today’s word count: 441
  • Thoughts: I’m pretty proud of the progress I made today. I thought for a while I wouldn’t get much accomplished at all, but then I made myself sit down and write before going to bed and the words just started tumbling out. Some of it was pretty silly and didn’t stick around for very long at all, but I made a decent number of words that felt pretty good to me and I kept all of those. We’ll see if I still love them when I go back to revised.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I think I’m getting back into the swing of things. I hope I can continue to write more and more in the upcoming week.
