Writing Progress August 26 – September 1, 2019

daily writing progress

August 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 245,538
  • Today’s word count: 122
  • Thoughts: Today was okay. It definitely wasn’t great. I’m feeling a little lost, I think. I have a vision for the rest of the story but executing that vision is proving difficult. Maybe I’ve overthought it all? It wouldn’t be the first time that’s happen to me. Planning is a tightrope walk. Too much and too little both put me at risk of stalling out.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I want to get this chapter finished as soona s possible. I feel like it is a stumbling block between me and the conclusion at this point. I will get past it.

August 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 245,636
  • Today’s word count: 98
  • Thoughts: Today was okay. It definitely wasn’t the most productive day by a long shot, but I sat down and I wrote. I think I spent more time talking with friends about writing and getting hyped for Scrivener 3 than actually writing. It might not have been the best use of my time, but I had fun.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I need to get back to writing. I also have a lot of housework to do. My day is going to be pretty busy, it seems.

August 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 245,722
  • Today’s word count: 86
  • Thoughts: I struggled to get the words out today. I had trouble focusing. I doubted myself. Overall, it just wasn’t a great day for writing. If it was just one issue, I think I would have fixed it and got back to work, but everything seemed to be more than a little off.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I want to finish this chapter but I’m not sure how I’m going to do it. I need to get over this self doubt and find a way to keep myself from getting distracted by unnecessary demands on my attention. I can do it. I just need to find the willpower.

August 29

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 245,768
  • Today’s word count: 46
  • Thoughts: Today might have been the worst day for writing so far this week. I couldn’t focus. I felt restless in both body and mind. I tried several things to alleviate this restlessness, but nothing seemed to do the trick. I guess today just wasn’t meant to be a writing day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’ll be Friday so I don’t want to get my hopes up, but I also have aspirations. I want to write. I will write, even if I don’t have much time for it.

August 30

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 245,921
  • Today’s word count: 153
  • Thoughts: Well, it might not have been spectacular but today was a better day of writing than I’ve had lately. On top of that, it’s Friday. I can’t believe I had an easier time writing on a Friday than on a Wednesday. Weird.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m going to be busy and away from my computer for a lot of the day. I don’t know how much writing I will get done, but I know I’m going to try.

August 31 and September 1

No writing progress made. I was out of the house a lot this weekend. I feel like I only came home to unwind a bit and then fall asleep. I didn’t expect to be this busy but it was a lot of fun. I just wish I could have found time to write in addition to all the out of the house adventuring I did. I’m hoping to have a quiet week this week and really focus on my writing to get back on track.
