Writing Progress December 9 – 15, 2019

daily writing progress

December 9

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 250,117
  • Today’s word count: 111
  • Thoughts: I wrote more than a hundred words. That’s better than I’ve been doing lately. It’s not great by any means, but every word gets me closer to the end of the story. That’s my goal right now. We’re so close! I know I can get there.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’m going to keep going, of course. I’m aiming to finish writing this serial by the end of the year. Will I manage to make it happen? Who knows? I’ll just have to keep going and you’ll have to stick around to find out.

December 10

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 250,145
  • Today’s word count: 28
  • Thoughts: My anxiety was through the roof today. I tried to write. I tried to focus on things other than writing. No matter what I did, the anxiety followed me and messed up my plans. I wanted to get so many things done and none of it worked out the way I planned.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: My birthday! I want to write. I also think I want to post some more scenes from The Dreams over on Patreon, but I’m not going to commit myself to anything at the moment because more than anything I want to stop the anxiety from following me into the next year of my life.

December 11

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 250,165
  • Today’s word count: 20
  • Thoughts: Contrary to my word count today, it was a very productive day. I posted 6 new scenes from The Dreams draft 3 to Patreon today. Doing what I wanted to do on my birthday ended up being really, really productive.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to reality. I have an obligation to finish writing Inbetween, even if most of what I want to do has nothing to do with this story. I will finish Inbetween if only to stop having to worry about it.

December 12

No writing progress made. This wasn’t intentional. I was planning to write in the evening but then an incident happened and I ended up worrying too much to focus on writing.

December 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 250,226
  • Today’s word count: 61
  • Thoughts: Well, that’s Friday for you. I thought I would make more progress today since I didn’t have errands to run. The distractions of Friday still managed to find me. Oh well. Not all days can be winners.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, I hope. Honestly, I’m not all that optimistic. I already have plans to go out and play Pokemon Go and that’s going to take a lot of my energy.

December 14

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 250,267
  • Today’s word count: 41
  • Thoughts: I was out for a long, long time today. Longer than I expected, honestly. It was a lot of fun, but I was pretty drained once I came back home. I’m impressed I managed to write at all.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: As much as I want to write tomorrow, I know I’m going out to play Pokemon Go again and all of the time outside and socializing does a number on my ability to even think about writing. Socializing sticks my brain into a place where I replay parts of conversations from the day and I can’t easily make room for my fiction.

December 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 250,373
  • Today’s word count: 106
  • Thoughts: I tried. It was pretty late when I found my creativity again. I was also exhausted at this point from not sleeping as much as I probably should and walking around a lot over the last two days. I wrote as much of what my brain came up with as I could before my eyelids became too heavy. I’m going to have to expand it a lot, but it’s there now and I can use it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Sleep! I can’t keep accumulating sleep debt like I have. After a good night’s sleep hopefully I will be able to write a lot of words. I’m starting to get a clearer picture of how I’m going to end Inbetween and I just want to get there.
