Writing Progress September 10 – 16, 2018

daily writing progress

September 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 191,992
  • Today’s word count: 223
  • Thoughts: Today was okay. It definitely wasn’t great. I didn’t feel all that great and it took a toll on my will to create.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Feel better. Write more. Get stuff done.

September 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 192,738
  • Today’s word count: 746
  • Thoughts: I said I wanted to write. I wrote. I said I wanted to feel better. I didn’t. This cold is kicking my butt, but it is kicking my inner editor’s butt even more. That part isn’t so bad, at least until I decide to revise.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Kick the cold? Maybe revise a chapter. We’ll see what happens.

September 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 193,018
  • Today’s word count: 280
  • Thoughts: Today was more of a struggle. Colds wear me out. With energy levels low today, I just could not produce as many words as I would have liked.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully the cold will be over and I can get back to writing without a foggy brain.

September 13

  • Project: The Dreams character sketch
  • Today’s word count: 155
  • Thoughts: Still sick. Still trying to write. It only works well when it wants to work well. Today was not one of those days.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully feel better and write a lot. It will be Friday, though, so I’m not sure what will get done at all.

September 14

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 193,071
  • Today’s word count: 53
  • Thoughts: I showed up and wrote despite it being Friday and this cold having me in a downward spiral. Instead of staying up and trying to write more, I’m going to bed early.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, I hope.

September 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 193,091
  • Today’s word count: 20
  • Thoughts: Still sick. Still trying to write. I didn’t make much progress. I’m trying not to be hard on myself about it. I’d rather recover than write at the moment.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write if I feel better. Do nothing if I don’t.

September 16

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 193,232
  • Today’s word count: 141
  • Thoughts: I’m struggling to rebuild my stamina. It’s hard to stay focused, but I’m trying!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I think I can do it. I’m feeling better every day so we have to hope it will happen.
