Writing Progress October 1 -7, 2018

daily writing progress

October 1

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 197,065
  • Today’s word count: 262
  • Thoughts: Today was better, but not great. I was still feeling the effects of my bad weekend of writing. I’m confident I’ll recover, but the first day is always hard.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I think I’ll be getting ready to start revising soon too, but I’m not sure that will happen tomorrow. Mostly, I just want to write!

October 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 197,553
  • Today’s word count: 488
  • Thoughts: Today’s word count is almost totally thanks to a surprise burst of writing just as I started to feel like I was too tired to stay awake any longer. Let’s hope some of those words will be useful later.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Some revising, perhaps? We’ll see how motivated I am!

October 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 197,795
  • Today’s word count: 242
  • Thoughts: Today was hard. I’ve been dealing with a migraine. I got it under control at times and really tried to get to work during those times, but I could only accomplish so much. The biggest accomplishment today was getting another scene of draft 3 of The Dreams posted over on Patreon.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully get over the migraine and get back to work.

October 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 197,917
  • Today’s word count: 122
  • Thoughts: Today was another tough day. The migraine did not relent. I struggled. I tried, but didn’t have a ton of success. It’s hard not to push myself on days like this. I want to have great writing days and when my own body doesn’t let that happen I have a tendency to beat myself up about it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully feel better. Hopefully write. I have a lot of hope.

October 5 and 6

No writing progress made.

I was so busy! I was barely home these days. This hardly ever happens. I love being home. Being out so much was fun, but so, so exhausting. I got some new books out of my excursions Friday so that was pretty exciting.


October 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 197,934
  • Today’s word count: 17

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 46,130
  • Today’s word count: 2

  • Thoughts: I was busy again today but I was home again by mid afternoon and tried to sit down and work on writing. I managed to revise a scene from draft 3 of The Dreams and post it over on Patreon. Then I tried to work on Inbetween and almost immediately started to fall asleep. I guess I just ran out of energy. I did have a busy weekend.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Stay home. Write. Rest. Be productive. I think I can handle that!
