Writing Progress February 4 – 10, 2019

daily writing progress

February 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 217,689
  • Today’s word count: 394
  • Thoughts: I’m still struggling to focus on my writing while using my writing laptop as my only computer. This little machine is perfect for writing but tackling other aspects of writing on this tiny computer is a struggle.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Hopefully I’ll get a chapter posted. Also, the part for my desktop PC is arriving tomorrow. Hopefully everything will go back to normal once I install it.

February 5

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 217,822
  • Today’s word count: 133
  • Thoughts: What an exciting day! As you can see, I didn’t get a ton of writing done, but I still feel like it was a productive day. The replacement power supply I ordered arrived and I spent a chunk of my afternoon installing it, managing cables, and rearranging my desk. Then, with my main computer up and running again I posted a new chapter of Inbetween.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I have options for writing again! If I want to write on my desktop I can do that, but I can also take my laptop and write elsewhere. It’ll be great.

February 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 218,511
  • Today’s word count: 689
  • Thoughts: I felt really productive today! It wasn’t my biggest word count day ever, but I really liked the words I wrote. That always makes a good day feel even better.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Revising. Writing. Everything. I feel motivated and I hope I can keep that motivation going tomorrow to move my projects forward.

February 7

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 98,439
  • Today’s word count: 296
  • Thoughts: I wasn’t feeling particularly motivated today. I wrote, but I don’t think what I wrote was inspired. Something isn’t quite right, but I’m hoping things will look better tomorrow.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Oh Friday. I’ll do my best, but I’m not going to hold my breath.

February 8

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 98,473
  • Today’s word count: 34
  • Thoughts: This was such a typical Friday. It was more of a Friday-like writing day than most of the Fridays so far this year. I was distracted. I wasn’t motivated. I don’t want to this pattern to continue.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I won’t be home to focus on writing all day, but I should have plenty of time to put toward my writing before and after my outing.

February 9

No writing progress made. I went out. I had fun. I came home. I had a migraine. The last thing I wanted to do was write.

February 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 218,637
  • Today’s word count: 126
  • Thoughts: The migraine didn’t go away and it sapped my will to do anything. I still managed to push myself to write something because I didn’t want to go a whole weekend without working on my writing. I wish I’d written more, but it’s unrealistic to push myself on days when basic self care is an uphill battle.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: If I can sleep off the migraine I’ll happily get back to work. If the migraine sticks around I might just see if I can sleep the day away.
