Writing Progress January 27 – February 2, 2020

daily writing progress

January 27

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 174,822
  • Today’s word count: 111
  • Thoughts: Better! Staying home all day helped. I just didn’t have enough focus to really make the most of the day, but even with an extremely short attention span, I managed to write more than I did over the weekend. That was my minimum goal. Doing more would have been better, but getting over 100 words is pretty good when I was barely able to focus for a sentence.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More peace and quiet. More writing. I’ve got this!

January 28

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 147,946
  • Today’s word count: 124
  • Thoughts: I struggled, but I stubbornly clung to the idea of writing more than I did yesterday. It took longer than it should have, especially because I kept going back and altering things I’d already written, but I finally managed to do it. Once I’d succeeded, my brain shut off almost immediately.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Let’s repeat today’s goal. I want to write more than I did today. Even one more word will be a victory. Can I do it? It should be relatively easy!

January 29

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 148,163
  • Today’s word count: 217
  • Thoughts: I feel like I’m making progress again! This is exciting. I didn’t get my writing mojo going until pretty late at night. This isn’t unusual, but it still frustrates me.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I should have a quiet day at home. If I concentrate, I should be able to get started earlier and get more done. Let’s see how it goes!

January 30

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 148,279
  • Today’s word count: 117
  • Thoughts: I got hit by another migraine. It seems like this month is a bad one migraine-wise. A bit of writing happened, but it wasn’t a lot and the bit I managed was such a struggle.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’ll be Friday. Fridays are always tricky. I’m going to try, but I’ll be keeping my expectations low. We’ll see what happens. I might be surprised.

January 31

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 148,419
  • Today’s word count: 140
  • Thoughts: The migraine continued. On top of that, it’s Friday. I was sure I wouldn’t get anything written today. There were too many obstacles. I surprised myself. It was the best kind of surprise. I made some progress in my story!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get rid of the migraine (if possible, I can’t really control that) and write more words!

February 1

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 148,511
  • Today’s word count: 92
  • Thoughts: I can’t believe I managed to write. I’m so pleased. Today was really hectic. It’s great that I found the time to sit down for a bit and write. Oh! I also revised two scenes for Patreon, posted one, and scheduled another one next week. I think it was a pretty productive day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully I can pull a similarly productive day off tomorrow. I’ll be a bit busy again. I won’t know how it has worked out until it has happened.

February 2

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 148,524
  • Today’s word count: 13
  • Thoughts: Wow. Today was definitely not a repeat of yesterday. That’s a shame. I was prepared for it. I knew the day was going to be a busy one. I just didn’t have a strategy to force a period of productivity once I was home again.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. No outings. I can do it.
