Writing Progress June 17 – 23, 2019

daily writing progress

June 17

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 235,721
  • Today’s word count: 86
  • Thoughts: Ugh. As much as I tried to write today, I couldn’t make it happen. I fought hard to focus but it just didn’t happen. I ended up going to bed early because I wasn’t doing anything productive and I felt exhausted.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’ll set the bar low. All I want to do is write more than I did today. I’m just about to wrap up a chapter. Hopefully that will motivate me to write a decent amount of words. It doesn’t always work that way, but it can work out like that.

June 18

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 235,818
  • Today’s word count: 97
  • Thoughts: My computer caused me so many problems today. I got it under control, but it derailed my morning pretty badly. Somehow I still managed to get a chapter revised and posted over on Patreon. I guess that means the day wasn’t completely lost.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I can’t believe I have 99 chapters of this serial novel completed now. The next once I wrap up will make it 100. I thought the story would be finished around chapter 100, but that won’t be happening. I’m going to keep writing until the story is finished!

June 19

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 236,043
  • Today’s word count: 225
  • Thoughts: I’m getting back into the groove of things. Things got derailed there for a a little while. I blame the phase of the writing process I was in there for the last few days. Revising always makes my word count drop down. Hopefully today is a sign that I’ve bounced back from the revising low.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I don’t need to revise again for at least a few more days. I want to use this time to get as much writing done as possible. I feel like I might be able to get ahead of schedule again if I just push myself a little. I’m sick of struggling and failing to keep a chapter posting routine. It’s time to change that.

June 20

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 236,610
  • Today’s word count: 567
  • Thoughts: I wanted to have a productive day. I had a really productive day. The stars aligned and I had energy, motivation and time to put into my writing. It’s been a long time since this happened for me. After living through it, I’ve realized how much I missed it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. It’ll be Friday so it’s hard to say how productive I’ll be. All I know is that I’ll try to make it work for me.

June 21

No writing happened. It was okay. I knew I needed to get all my weekend chores done today. We’re celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday tomorrow with an all day outing so putting stuff off until later wasn’t an option. I might not have written, but I feel like I had a productive day.

June 22

No writing again. I spent all day outside of the house. We went to an arcade with all sorts of retro arcade cabinets and pinball machines. We were there until 11 pm. It really ended up being an all day event. My boyfriend really enjoyed his special day.

June 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 236,653
  • Today’s word count: 43
  • Thoughts: I wrote a bit even though I had another incredibly busy day. I helped deliver an antique radio to my grandfather and an antique sewing machine to my mother. The radio belonged to my grandfather’s parents when he was growing up and the sewing machine was my great grandmother’s and was later used by my great aunt before being put into storage. It was wonderful seeing my grandfather’s reaction to seeing the radio again. Doing all of this didn’t leave me a lot of time to write, but I did manage to post a new chapter so be sure to check that out.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I have a few more errands to run in the morning, but I’ll be home the rest of the day. There’s no reason I can’t write once I’m home.
