Writing Progress June 3 – 9, 2019

daily writing progress

June 3

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 233,732
  • Today’s word count: 243
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t a bad writing day at all. I managed to finish writing a chapter. Then I continued writing! I know I’ll have to worry about revising at some point, but not today. Until then I’ll just enjoy the feeling of accomplishment.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I should probably think about revising the chapter I just completed. I need to get more of my writing online and I can’t do that until I have more chapters revised and ready to go. Writing more wouldn’t be bad either. Let’s just do all the things.

June 4

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 233,818
  • Today’s word count: 86
  • Thoughts: I didn’t intend to revise today, but it ended up happening. It slowed down my progress quite a bit, but progress isn’t always easy to measure by word count. I’m relatively happy with the amount of work I got done today.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m picking strawberries in the morning. I guess depending on how many strawberries I bring home, I might have time to write in the afternoon or I might be cleaning and prepping strawberries all day long. Either way I’m looking forward to having a ton of fresh strawberries again.

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 233,839
  • Today’s word count: 21
  • Thoughts: An attempted was made. My day ended up being consumed by strawberries. I knew I’d be picking strawberries in the morning, but I did not truly anticipate how many strawberries I would be bringing home. I spent the rest of the day preparing strawberries. The fridge and freezer are full!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I have a chapter to revise. I have more story to write. It’s going to be a busy day, but I’m looking forward to it. Let’s hope I can keep this motivation around for a while.

June 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 233,856
  • Today’s word count: 17
  • Thoughts: I did more revising today. It didn’t look like much progress was made, but I’m sorting out a chapter that was messy and little bit longer than usual. I’m not sure how long it will be when I’m done working on it, but right now it’s still long and I’m just trying to make it the best chapter it can be.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I don’t think I’ll be taking the day off, but we’ll see what happens. Fridays are always a little unpredictable and I’m not going to disappoint myself by setting my expectations high.

June 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 233,860
  • Today’s word count: 4
  • Thoughts: I was busier today than I expected to be, but I still found a bit of time to revise. This chapter is still not finished! It’s driving me up the wall at this point. I want to wrap it up and get it out on the internet!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More revising. I’m itching to get back to writing too, but I think I should make an effort to finish revising the chapter before I switch gears and go back to writing. Maybe I’m just impatient.

June 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 233,881
  • Today’s word count: 21
  • Thoughts: The chapter is finally complete! I pushed myself to finish revising and it worked. The hardest part was letting go. There were so many things I had in mind that I wanted to change and experiment with, but eventually I convinced myself I was only making things messier than they were before. I’m pretty satisfied with the end result and that will be good enough until next draft.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I’m really looking forward to it. All the revising over the last few days has really made me miss the act of creating without being critical of myself.

June 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 233,906
  • Today’s word count: 25
  • Thoughts: Today was pretty interesting. I wrote a bit, but not a lot. The biggest achievement of the day was getting a new chapter posted. It’s been a while. I really want to get back on schedule with a chapter every week, but I don’t know when that will happen. I’ll keep working at it!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I’m feeling motivated. I’m going to write a ton of words and it’s going to be amazing.
