Writing Progress October 8 – 14, 2018

daily writing progress

October 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 197,982
  • Today’s word count: 48
  • Thoughts: Ugh. I’m having such a hard time writing these days. I was still exhausted and was dealing with a migraine. I probably should have given up and rested, but I’m stubborn and didn’t get much out of it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Feel better and more rested. Write!

October 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 198,173
  • Today’s word count: 191
  • Thoughts: Today was pretty productive. I got a new chapter posted and I wrote some new words. I’m feeling pretty motivated.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. So much more writing, I hope.

October 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 198,724
  • Today’s word count: 603
  • Thoughts: Today was pretty productive. I had one really good writing session and two lackluster ones. I can’t really complain because today produced my best word count for the month so far.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully have another great writing day. I think I might be able to do it!

October 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 198,849
  • Today’s word count: 125
  • Thoughts: I struggled to focus today. I don’t know what the problem was exactly, but I could not get into my story like I did yesterday.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’ll be Friday, but I’m hoping I’ll still be able to write a decent amount. We’ll see what happens!

October 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 198,910
  • Today’s word count: 61

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 46,129
  • Today’s word count: -1

  • Thoughts: My word count says this was a fairly typical Friday, but I think I was pretty productive today. I got a scene of The Dreams up on Patreon for my patrons to read, I wrote a new blog post, and I managed to at least make an effort to write some new words for Inbetween. Not bad, really.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I hope I can get another scene from The Dreams up over on Patreon and if I’m really lucky and have a huge burst of productivity I might manage to wrap up a chapter of Inbetween as well.

October 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 199,178
  • Today’s word count: 268
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t too bad. I sometimes have a hard time finding the time and focus to write on Saturday, but this week I didn’t have that problem and I’m thrilled.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I think I can wrap up a chapter if I sit down and focus.

October 14

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 199,209
  • Today’s word count: 31
  • Thoughts: I don’t know what happened today. I could blame it on my shoulder being sore and limiting the range of motion in my right arm, but I think the real reason was that I just felt like being lazy. Everyone needs lazy days, I think. I just wish I was better at planning or at least anticipating them.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I think I can do it. I really want to wrap up this chapter.
