Writing Progress November 12 – 18, 2018

daily writing progress

November 12

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 64,662
  • Today’s word count: 1,522
  • Thoughts: Today kicked my butt. I fought a migraine for every word I wrote. I had some moments where I was relatively pain free and I did my best to use them to my advantage. I felt tired, but pretty normal late at night, and I tried to take advantage of that by writing in bed. I wasn’t particularly productive and crashed pretty soon after I settled in with my laptop.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Feel better. Make up for my less than stellar word counts lately.

November 13

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 66,285
  • Today’s word count: 1,623
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. I’m hoping this is just because I’m still bouncing back from my migraine.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I also want to get another scene dump ready and posted for my patrons. It’s going to be a busy day!

November 14

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 67,049
  • Today’s word count: 764
  • Thoughts: Ugh. Today was a busy day, but I was not as productive word count-wise as I hoped to be. I got distracted and when I tried to focus I just wasn’t as fast as I’ve been on other days. Maybe I’m just in a bit of a slump?
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully I can get out of this slump. I’m not ready to stop trying.

November 15

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 69,540
  • Today’s word count: 2,491
  • Thoughts: Today was pretty productive! I really wanted to have a great writing day after the kinda meh day I had yesterday. I think I succeeded.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I know it will be Friday, but I think I can still have a pretty decent writing day.

November 16

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 70,806
  • Today’s word count: 1,266
  • Thoughts: Well, it was Friday. I got in one good writing session and that was it. I wanted to write more, but I when I found more time I was already exhausted. It happens, I guess.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Make Saturday more successful than Friday. I don’t have any major, day-consuming plans this weekend so I should have as easier time fitting in a good amount of writing.

November 17

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 71,525
  • Today’s word count: 719
  • Thoughts: Today was a struggle. I couldn’t get into the right mindset for writing. I’m not sure why. If I’d figured it out, I would have done more to try to change it. Overall, it wasn’t a bad day, just not a great one for writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I have nothing else to do. I can make it happen.

November 18

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 73,630
  • Today’s word count: 2,105
  • Thoughts: Today was a productive Sunday! I wrote. I took a break. I wrote some more later. That’s about all I can hope for in a day of writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m going to be busy in the morning, but I’m hoping to find time to write in the afternoon and again in the evening.
