Writing Progress April 1 – 7, 2019

daily writing progress

April 1

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 225,977
  • Today’s word count: 244
  • Thoughts: I’m back! After being away from writing all weekend I jumped back in and actually managed to write more than a few words. It felt great even if I still don’t feel so great myself. I can’t wait to write more.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I want to ride the motivation wave and keep moving forward with Inbetween. I need to shift some of my focus over to researching and outlining my next serial as well. That’s my CampNaNoWriMo project this month. That story needs to be ready to go when I finish Inbetween, after all.

April 2

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 226,100
  • Today’s word count: 123
  • Thoughts: I wrote. I didn’t write as much as yesterday, but I sat down and wrote and that’s a huge accomplishment considering my health lately. At this point, I’m still recovering so I’m expecting some ups and downs in regard to my productivity. I hope I will be back to normal soon, but I have to deal with what I have until that happens.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I’m confident I will continue to feel better bit by bit and I’ll have energy to put toward my writing. It’s going to be great. Soon I’ll be feeling great.

April 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 226,320
  • Today’s word count: 220
  • Thoughts: Today was a bit better than yesterday, but I’m back to experiencing an old problem. My most inspired, motivated time for writing happens just before I’m too exhausted to stay up and write any longer. I had more ideas than I could actually write before I needed to sleep. This problem seems to be worst on days when I have some problems in my story and I spend the day mulling over those problems. Maybe I should just sit down and write my way through the story snarls.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! Since I was inspired late in the day, I hope I can carry that inspiration into tomorrow.

April 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 226,466
  • Today’s word count: 146
  • Thoughts: I’m starting to feel better, but I’m still not back to my usual self. Not being up to going about my day normally is making me really anxious which isn’t so great.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, I hope. I’m not taking Friday off this week. I feel like I wouldn’t be able to enjoy a day off right now.

April 5

No writing progress made. I didn’t plan to take the day off, but it happened. I was really distracted today.

April 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 226,472
  • Today’s word count: 6
  • Thoughts: I tried, but I didn’t have much luck with writing today. I did a lot of other fun and important things, but I couldn’t focus on writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’ll be another busy today, but I’m going to write to write after I get home.

April 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 226,552
  • Today’s word count: 80
  • Thoughts: I’m honestly surprised I wrote at all. I visited the cherry blossoms in DC today and by the time I got home I felt ready to fall asleep. I rested a bit and found a bit of energy, which lasted long enough for me to tackle the majority of a paragraph. I’m still proud of the writing I managed to do. It was more than I expected.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’ll be at home and I have plenty of new people watching fodder to use in my writing. I feel like things should go pretty well!
