Writing Progress August 20 – 26, 2018

daily writing progress

August 20

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 188,285
  • Today’s word count: 449
  • Thoughts: Today was an incredibly productive day for writing and non-writing things. Some days are just great like that, but I can’t count on having this level of energy and productivity every day. I know I’d burn out if I tried to achieve it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I want to the next chapter posted too. I’m confident I can do it!

August 21

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 188,450
  • Today’s word count: 165
  • Thoughts: Today was a perfect example of how going out for part of the day completely destroys my ability to sit down and right before and after the outing. I’m interested in trying to figure out why this happens to me and seeing if there’s something I can do to improve my ability to write on these days. I did manage to post Chapter Seventy Six of Inbetween so that was a win for the day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I might work on some revising too if I have the time and inclination. Mostly I just want to write and see if I can make up for today’s tiny word count.

August 22

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 188,960
  • Today’s word count: 510
  • Thoughts: Today ended up being a productive day, but it took me forever to get started. I wish I could have gotten into my groove sooner because I think I could have written even more.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Maybe some revising if I find the motivation for it.

August 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 189,208
  • Today’s word count: 248
  • Thoughts: I made some progress today, but not as much progress as I would have liked. There were distractions again today so that played a part in it. I need a nice, long stretch of distraction-free days to really get back into the swing of things. The motivation and inspiration are definitely back so I think this is the last missing piece of the puzzle.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I might get some revising done too if I get on a roll. It’ll be Friday though so I think it is important to temper my expectations.

August 24

No writing progress made. I was busy and decided not to push myself to write since it would only frustrate me.

August 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 189,529
  • Today’s word count: 321
  • Thoughts: I wrote! That’s about all I could hope for on the weekend.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, I hope.

August 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 189,530
  • Today’s word count: 1
  • Thoughts: Today’s energy and attention went entirely into revising a chapter. I tried to write after I finished revising, but my brain was already done for the day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I’m sure I can do it.
