Writing Progress September 24 – 30, 2018

daily writing progress

September 24

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 195,647
  • Today’s word count: 466
  • Thoughts: It took me a while to get started, but then the words started flowing. Then it was really late and I decided to call it quits for the night. I wish I could find a great deal of writing motivation at a more sensible hour like noon.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Maybe some revising. Maybe a chapter will be posted? We’ll see!

September 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 196,338
  • Today’s word count: 691
  • Thoughts: Today was a relatively productive day! I’m happy with the progress I made. I didn’t manage to get a chapter posted, but I have started the revision process and I wrote a ton of words!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Finish revisions! Post a chapter! Write more words! I’m feeling really motivated (if you can’t tell from exclamation points)!

September 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 196,365
  • Today’s word count: 27
  • Thoughts: Today was a strange day. I got a chapter posted relatively early in the day and then my brain tried very hard to switch out of writing mode for the rest of the day. I tried to get it back, but didn’t have much success.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I think I can do it. I have plenty of experience.

September 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 196,520
  • Today’s word count: 155
  • Thoughts: Today was a struggle. It wasn’t my writing that was giving me problems. It was the world making it hard for me to focus on my work. I tried to stay away from the news, but the news found me and I’m just so anxious now that I can’t focus on much of anything.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully more writing. I’m not too confident. It’ll be Friday and the world will still be an awful place. I might just stay in bed.

September 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 196,606
  • Today’s word count: 86
  • Thoughts: Well, I obviously managed to get out of bed, but I wouldn’t say I had a good day. Staying positive and focused on my creative work in really a struggle right now. I’m stressed. Everyone around me is stressed. I’ve been here before, though. I know I can get through this. It just might take a little while to recover.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Try to avoid the things that stress me out so I can focus on my writing instead.

September 29

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 196,734
  • Today’s word count: 128
  • Thoughts: I was a little busy today. It wasn’t as bad as last Saturday, but I still had less than a full day to dedicate to my writing and it definitely interfered with my focus.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get back to focusing on writing!

September 30

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 196,803
  • Today’s word count: 69
  • Thoughts: Writing was hard today. It wasn’t that I didn’t have time or the ability to write, I just found myself daydreaming a lot more than usual. I can’t complain. Daydreaming can make stories even better.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, I hope. I don’t want to fall into another slump. NaNo prep season will be really kicking off and that’s no time to let me writing muscles atrophy.
