Writing Progress July 9 – 15, 2018

daily writing progress

July 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 180,091
  • Today’s word count: 82
  • Thoughts: I revised a lot today. My only disappointment was that I didn’t finish revising before I needed to sleep.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Wrap up revising, post chapter, and get back to writing!

July 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 180,161
  • Today’s word count: 70
  • Thoughts: Well, I revised and got a chapter posted, but I didn’t do much else with my writing. I just didn’t have the creative energy to switch gears and get back into writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I’m sure I can do it. I have to do it.

July 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 180,428
  • Today’s word count: 267
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t too bad. I thought it would be better because I had a really strong start to the day, but then things just fell apart for a while. I got it back together towards the end, but it was too late to really make a big difference. Writing happened though so I’m not complaining too much.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully some revising. Just more productivity in general, please.

July 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 180,678
  • Today’s word count: 250
  • Thoughts: I wrote. I didn’t write as much as I hoped. I just didn’t have a great day outside of writing and it spilled over into my writing time and drained my productivity. I made up for it a bit with a writing push right before bed.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. A ton of revising, if I’m lucky.

July 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 180,813
  • Today’s word count: 135
  • Thoughts: I’m not even surprised. This was such a typical Friday with typical Friday distractions. I’m just glad I wrote something.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully more revising. If we’re really lucky I’ll get a chapter posted.

July 14

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 181,003
  • Today’s word count: 190
  • Thoughts: Ugh. Today was rough. I wanted to write, but I kept getting distracted. It seems to be a major, recurring theme with my days lately. I need to get out of the rut and get back to more productive habits.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. I have to keep trying or I’ll never succeed.

July 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 181,186
  • Today’s word count: 183
  • Thoughts: Today was a struggle for reasons I still don’t understand. I had a two short bursts of writing and managed to produce a paragraph I think is a keeper.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. A lot more writing, I hope. I have a lot of work to do to make up for all the bad writing days I’ve been having.
