Writing Progress July 22 – 28, 2019

daily writing progress

July 22

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 240,526
  • Today’s word count: 111
  • Thoughts: Well, today was slightly cooler and slightly more productive. If only colder temperatures always resulted bigger word counts. I’d be an unstoppable whirlwind of writing all winter long. If only things worked that way in reality.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I need to get a chapter posted here. I’ve had it ready to go for a while, but I just never found the motivation to finish setting up the post. It’s time to stop putting it off and get it up on the blog once and for all. It’s wild to think we’re over 100 chapters into this serial now.

July 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 240,644
  • Today’s word count: 118
  • Thoughts: A new chapter went up today! The cool weather today certainly helped a bit. It isn’t reflected all that well in my word count, but I had a major breakthrough on what’s going to happen next. I’ve known how I wanted Inbetween to end since the beginning, but I lost the path to that ending a while ago. Now I’ve found one and I love it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More cool weather hopefully means more writing. I’m going to do my best to write more and more words each day.

July 24

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 240,664
  • Today’s word count: 20
  • Thoughts: Ugh. The anxiety got me today. I don’t know where it came from or what it was about, but it got me. I tried to get it back under control. I succeeded, but it took too long. I didn’t have enough time or energy to really sit down and write.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I chased off the anxiety. Hopefully that means I’ll be able to write a lot tomorrow. I guess it will all come down to whether or not I can keep the anxiety from returning.

July 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 240,742
  • Today’s word count: 78
  • Thoughts: I got sick. That was unexpected. It was almost certainly just my allergies acting up, but I had such a terrible ear ache for most of the day. I was miserable! And there wasn’t much I could do about it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’ll be Friday. I just have to hope I’ll find the time and motivation to get something done. I suspect I will be fairly distracted. There’s always so much I need to do and once I leave the house for an errand, I need to spend a few hours recovering once I’m home again.

July 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 240,783
  • Today’s word count: 41
  • Thoughts: Today could have been worse. For a while I didn’t think I’d manage to write at all, but I sat down and wrote a couple sentences and it felt great to make the effort.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Write more than a few sentences. It should be possible. I’ll be puttering around the house for most of the day. Taking some of that time and using it for writing should be easy enough. I just don’t want to set my expectations too high.

July 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 240,806
  • Today’s word count: 23
  • Thoughts: I didn’t write a lot today, but I did take my laptop out to write somewhere other than my apartment. It’s been a while since I last did that! It wasn’t very productive, but it was so much fun! I also spent a lot of time outside walking around. I think it’s was the most exercise I had in a single day all month and it felt great. Honestly, I didn’t want to stop.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! More walking too, I think. It was too much fun not to try to relive it.

July 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 240,916
  • Today’s word count: 110
  • Thoughts: I made more progress today than other days recently. It was a great day. I got a lot of exercise and it actually made me more energized. It’s been a long time since that happened. A couple different pain problems usually prevent me from feeling more energetic after a lot of physical activity in a short span of time. Not having that problem is such an amazing feeling.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More walking. More writing. I’m feeling motivated and excited to get things done! Let’s do it!
