Writing Progress March 25 – 31, 2019

daily writing progress

March 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 225,300
  • Today’s word count: 167
  • Thoughts: Considering how my day went, I’m impressed with how much I wrote. Within two hours of waking up I started to feel awful. I don’t know if it is allergies or a cold at at this point, but I have a cough and a sore throat. I felt pretty miserable all day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully I’ll feel better and be able to focus on writing. If that’s not possible, I guess I’ll do my best to write while resting and keeping recovery as my priority.

March 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 225,447
  • Today’s word count: 147
  • Thoughts: Still coughing. Still miserable. Still trying to write.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I want to write. I’ll probably write not matter how I feel, but it’ll be a lot easier if I’m not sick.

March 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 225,635
  • Today’s word count: 188
  • Thoughts: I’m still sick. It’s a strange kind of sick. Overall, I feel pretty okay, but my cough was absolutely terrible. When I could get it under control, I thought I might be over this. Then my cough came back and I knew it wasn’t over.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Today proved to me that I can write through this. Unless I feel a lot worse, I’m going to write!

March 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 225,685
  • Today’s word count: 50
  • Thoughts: I’m still struggling with this cough. It’s disruptive and annoying, but I don’t seem to have a lot of other symptoms. Hopefully I won’t get any worse and the cough will disappear soon.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I don’t think I’m going to take a day off this week. I’ve been struggling every day so a break might seem like it is in order, but I think I’d just spend the day feeling guilty if I didn’t try to make up for lost time.

March 29

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 225,733
  • Today’s word count: 48
  • Thoughts: I tried to write and go about my day normally and that turned out to be a huge mistake. I took it relatively easy this week since I started feeling poorly. That left me with a lot to wrap up since it was Friday. I may have pushed myself a bit harder than usual. Now I’m a lot sicker than I was before. It’s not ideal.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Take it easy. I don’t care if I write. I might, but I refuse to even hope I’ll find the energy to do it. I need to get better, not worse.

March 30 and March 31

I didn’t write this weekend. I was pretty miserable and all the energy I could muster went to other things I had to do. Under normal circumstances I would have had time and energy to focus on writing, but this weekend feeling poorly drained me of both time and energy.
