Writing Progress October 15 – 21, 2018

daily writing progress

October 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 199,595
  • Today’s word count: 386
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t so bad. I made some progress. I would have made more, but I got distracted from writing while already up too late so I made myself go to bed. Maybe that wasn’t the right decision, but I like sleep.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising. Maybe a chapter will be posted? I hope so!

October 16

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 199,972
  • Today’s word count: 377
  • Thoughts: Today was productive. I wrote. I revised. I posted a new chapter. Then I sat around and did nothing much at all for a couple hours before bed. I forgot how much I love doing nothing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I’m feeling pretty motivated. Do you see that total word count up there? If I write tomorrow I’ll hit 200k!

October 17

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 200,178
  • Today’s word count: 206
  • Thoughts: I broke 200k with Inbetween! Holy cow this has been a long journey. I feel like 100k to 200k took a really, really long time. It probably did. I’ve been fighting the soggy middle of this story for a long time. It’s a long story so the middle is absolutely massive. Passing 200k hopefully marks a transition toward the end of the story. That isn’t to say that Inbetween will end in 10k or 20k words, but I can see the story working its way toward a resolution now. It’s a great, motivating feeling.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. I’m feeling pretty motivated so let’s see where that takes me.

October 18

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 200,283
  • Today’s word count: 105

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 46,126
  • Today’s word count: -3

  • Thoughts: My word counts don’t look spectacular today, but I’m pretty happy with my progress. I wrote. I checked over a scene from draft 3 of The Dreams and posted it over on Patreon (you should join us over there and check it out). I’m still looking for a better way to record my progress for stuff like editing, revisions, or outlining, but for now I guess these notes about it will have to do.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. Let’s go!

October 19

No progress made. I posted another scene from draft 3 of The Dreams over on Patreon, but other than that I didn’t put much attention into my writing.

October 20

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 200,300
  • Today’s word count: 17
  • Thoughts: Today was busy, but not a sit-down-and-write kind of busy. I had to do a lot early in the day and ran out of steam pretty early.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Stay home. Take it easy. Write a ton of words.

October 21

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 200,316
  • Today’s word count: 16
  • Thoughts: Today was strange. I intended to write. Instead, I spent way too much time learning about laptops that would make a good, cheap replacement for my current laptop which is from 2011 and now anchored to an outlet by a worn out battery. Fortunately, I may have found a good replacement so this shouldn’t continue to be a distraction.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. Hopefully I’ll make some real progress to make up for my lackluster weekend progress.
