Writing Progress August 5 – 11, 2019

daily writing progress

August 5

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 242,056
  • Today’s word count: 66
  • Thoughts: I usually write at night and I just didn’t have energy to do it tonight. Coming home from pet sitting was surprisingly exhausting. The actual pet sitting was great. It was pretty relaxing to just hang out with and care for animals, but coming home again just drained me. Maybe it was just needing to unpack and mostly just wanting to snuggle with my cats instead.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back home and back to writing. I might manage to revise a chapter, if I’m on a roll. I hope I manage to be that productive.

August 6

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 242,146
  • Today’s word count: 90
  • Thoughts: I revised today! The change of pace felt amazing. Maybe I need to take more days to revise. Well, I just need to write more so I have more to revise when the urge hits me. Easy, right? Ha! Maybe if I had a ton of 500+ word days in a row I’d have enough material to just take a day off and revise a chapter whenever I felt like it. I’d love it if that could happen.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More revising. I’m going to get a chapter posted to Patreon! Then I’ll be going back to writing. I really do need to get a ton of 500+ word days going. I want Inbetween finished. I have so many other projects in need of my attention. It’s time to get to work on them.

August 7

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 242,223
  • Today’s word count: 77
  • Thoughts: I finished revising a chapter. It’s posted for my patrons now and will show up here on the blog sometime in the coming week. I also switched gears back to writing and made a bit of progress. Overall, it was a good day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’m not sure if the weather is going to get in my way or not, but I’m going to try and if storms and high humidity try to ruin things, I’ll just have to work around them.

August 8

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 242,365
  • Today’s word count: 142
  • Thoughts: Today went pretty well, I think. I spent a lot of time sitting and thinking about what I wanted to write and it did cut into my writing time, but I think having a plan will benefit my productivity while writing the rest of this chapter.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I hope I can write. It will be Friday so it’s hard for me to find the ability to focus, but I’m at least optimistic. I should have at least a little time to dedicate to my writing.

August 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 242,368
  • Today’s word count: 3
  • Thoughts: Wow. I rarely write this little on days I actually manage to write. I was busy. That happens on Fridays. I sat down and tried to write. Then I realized I was exhausted. I stopped trying.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. There’s going to be a street fair right outside my door so I probably won’t get much writing down during the day, but there’s the entire evening and the whole night full of writing opportunities. I’m not going to give up on the day before it’s started!

August 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 242,370
  • Today’s word count: 2
  • Thoughts: I didn’t think it would be possible, but my word count decreased from yesterday! I blame the street fair and my own laziness. At least I made the effort to sit down and start a sentence. It’s just a shame it didn’t go any further than that. Oh well.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I have nothing to do but stay home in my pajamas and write. There’s no reason to go outside and no reason to be distracted. I’m sure I’ll find something to draw my attention away but hopefully it won’t last too long or cause too many problems.

August 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 242,514
  • Today’s word count: 144
  • Thoughts: I wrote. That’s better than the last few days. I managed to finish that sentence I started the other day. It was such a relief to get that behind me. That sentence was bothering me. There was nothing wrong with it. I just hated that I started it and didn’t finish it for so long.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Depending on my level of motivation I might get the next chapter posted as well. It’s coming soon, even if it might end up going up on Tuesday rather than Monday.
