Writing Progress November 8–14, 2021

November 8

  • Project: Inbetween (novel version)
  • Total word count: 11,452
  • Today’s word count: 1,906
  • Thoughts: I was determined today to write more than the minimum today and I did it. It took a while for the momentum to build but once I got going the writing was fairly easy. I really feel like I’m making progress with this story! That feeling makes it a lot easier to keep writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. I’d love to see a repeat of today. If I can keep writing more than the minimum I can chip away at my deficit bit by bit and hopefully I will be back on track or a bit ahead by the time the end of the month gets here.

November 9

  • Project: Inbetween (novel version)
  • Total word count: 13,338
  • Today’s word count: 1,936
  • Thoughts: I’m getting caught up! I wish I could get it done all at once, but I don’t think my hands would be usable after that much writing in a day and I’d only end up falling behind again. I’ll just be happy with slowly getting back to where I should be.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I have to keep writing, of course. There’s still catching up to do.

November 10

  • Project: Inbetween (novel version)
  • Total word count: 15,205
  • Today’s word count: 1,817
  • Thought: I was worried I wouldn’t get my word in for the day. For most of the day I wasn’t feel great. The weather keeps flipping between seasonally average to above average and my sinuses are angry. I couldn’t concentrate. Then a switch flipped at night and I finally felt able to write. So I wrote and actually got my words in for the day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Maybe I’ll be able to write earlier in the day. I would love to get caught up before the weekend. I’m a little worried I’ll have a repeat of last Friday and fall further behind.

November 11

  • Project: Inbetween (novel version)
  • Total word count: 17,067
  • Today’s word count: 1,862
  • Thoughts: I picked at my writing off and on this afternoon. Then I had one really solid writing session tonight. It got me the words I needed for the day. I’m happy with the progress I’ve been making. I’m on track to be back on track soon!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I haven errands to run but I’m hoping I will be able to settle down and focus on writing after I get home. It didn’t work out at all last week, but I think I’m in a better place now. I’m certainly more determined to keep up my writing pace.

November 12

  • Project: Inbetween (novel version)
  • Total word count: 18,751
  • Today’s word count: 1,684
  • Thoughts: This was a really good Friday! I was busy and I still managed to get plenty of time to write! It felt really good to be so productive.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m going to be super extra busy. I won’t be home much at all so I’m planning on writing in a google doc on my phone. I don’t think I’ll get much writing done, but I won’t know for sure until the day is done.

November 13

  • Project: Inbetween (novel version)
  • Total word count: 18,913
  • Today’s word count: 162
  • Thoughts: I was so busy today. I only managed to write on my phone and that was just a little bit. I feel like I’m still at a part of the story I want to write so the day didn’t manage to ruin my enthusiasm. I just ran out of time and energy. I guess I have another week of catch up to do in week 3.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m going to have a very, very quiet day at home. I should have plenty of time tow rite. I just hope I have the energy to do it.

November 14

  • Project: Inbetween (novel version)
  • Total word count: 19,264
  • Today’s word count: 352
  • Thoughts: I had high hopes for today. A migraine decided to show up and derail all of my grand writing plans. Most of my time was spent trying to tend to my head instead of writing. It was frustrating.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully a good night’s sleep will fix things for me. I should have plenty of time to write if my body will just let me use that time the way I want. I hate that I’m falling further behind again.
