Writing Progress October 22 -28, 2018

daily writing progress

October 22

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 200,865
  • Today’s word count: 549
  • Thoughts: Today was a pretty good writing day. I felt motivated. Granted, a major motivation was trying to warm up my fingers, but it worked so I’m not going to complain.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I might get a chapter revised too. We’ll see what happens.

October 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 200,974
  • Today’s word count: 109
  • Thoughts: Today was a struggle. I didn’t get a lot words down, but I did do a lot of thinking about my novel. It’s hard to feel like that’s actually work, but I know that it is essential.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully some revising. Hopefully less distracted (but I wouldn’t count on it).

October 24

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 201,058
  • Today’s word count: 84
  • Thoughts: Today was not the most productive day. I had a feeling it would not be, but I had hoped I would be wrong.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Maybe some revising. We’ll see what happens. I’m trying not to put too much pressure on myself right before the start of NaNoWriMo.

October 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 201,208
  • Today’s word count: 150
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad either. I’m distracted, but I know I’m distracted so I can make an effort to steer myself back on track. It’s not much of an advantage (as you can see from my still pitiful word count) but it is something.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Fridays are always weird. I’m going to write, but I’m not going to count on writing a lot of words.

October 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 201,266
  • Today’s word count: 58
  • Thoughts: Today was a pretty typical Friday word count-wise. It was not a typical Friday in other ways. Today I received my new-to-me writing laptop that will help me write on the go during NaNoWriMo and beyond. I spent part of the day setting the laptop up with my programs and letting it download and install updates.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write! I think I’ll find a cozy corner somewhere (probably still within my apartment because the weather looks like it will be gross) and write on my laptop to break it in.

October 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 202,078
  • Today’s word count: 812
  • Thoughts: A change of scenery did the trick! I wrote on my new writing machine today and it was great. I feel so ready for NaNoWriMo now.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising! Let’s do all the things!

October 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 202,613
  • Today’s word count: 535

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 46,128
  • Today’s word count: 2

  • Thoughts: Today was a busy day. I posted a scene from draft 3 of The Dreams over on Patreon. I posted a new chapter of Inbetween here on the blog. On top of that, I wrote! It was a great day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’m feeling pretty motivated. Let’s see if I can make it happen!
