daily writing progress

September 17

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 193,801
  • Today’s word count: 569
  • Thoughts: Today was a pretty productive day. I feel like I’m getting my ability to write back as the symptoms of the cold recedes.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing. Revising. Maybe I’ll post a chapter?

September 18

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 194,232
  • Today’s word count: 431
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t too bad. I think I could have written more but I became tired very suddenly and couldn’t fight it to stay up and write a bit more.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write what I was too tired to write and then write some more.

September 19

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 194,376
  • Today’s word count: 144
  • Thoughts: I struggled. I knew what I wanted to write from the start, but I was stuck trying to get the words out without wandering off course. For some reason I really struggled with that. I did finish the scene so there’s that.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! Revise! I think I can do it!

September 20

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 194,479
  • Today’s word count: 103
  • Thoughts: I posted a new chapter today! I spent a lot of my writing time agonizing over revisions. In the end, I forced myself to stop nitpicking and just post this chapter already.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing! It’ll be Friday so I’m not aiming too high, but I’m excited to be going back to my favorite part of the process.

September 21

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 195,055
  • Today’s word count: 576
  • Thoughts: Fridays are usually terrible so I went into the day with very low expectations and somehow managed to write a lot of words. Considering the poor results I get most Fridays, this is amazing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m not sure what I’ll accomplish, honestly. I’ll be out of the house for at least part of the day, but I should have time to write in the morning. If I put my mind to it, I should be able to make some words happen.

September 22

No progress made. I was out of the house for most of the day. I had a great time, but it left me without energy for writing.

September 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 195,181
  • Today’s word count: 126
  • Thoughts: I had another busy day. I can’t believe how much time I spent out of the house this weekend! Today I managed to write a little bit, but it’s hard to really settle in and focus on writing a ton of words after socializing has drained me of so much energy.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Stay home. Write all the words!
