Writing Progress February 14–20, 2022

February 14

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 523
  • Today’s word count: 23
  • Thoughts: This just wasn’t a good day for getting much of anything done. I couldn’t sit still. I tried to write anyway but my mind just bounced from one thing to the next. If it ever landed on my writing, it didn’t stay there for long. Days like this are always stressful.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully things will be a little less chaotic. I’d love to have a day of intense focus. That might be asking too much. I don’t want to swing to far in the other direction and really mess myself up by wearing myself out. I just want to write!

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 643
  • Today’s word count: 120
  • Thoughts: Today was a reasonably good day. I was more than a little distracted because I got a new book. First I had to keep an eye out for the book getting delivered. Then I had to start reading it, of course. The next volume doesn’t come out until June so I’m going to try to pace myself but I know I’ll run out of book long before then. I’ll just have to write a lot more to keep myself busy and stop myself from devouring the whole book this week.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, of course. I have some chores that are really starting to demand attention so I’ll have to deal with those before things completely fall apart. Hopefully having a bit more to do will help me write even more.

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 798
  • Today’s word count: 155
  • Thoughts: The most frustrating thing about today was how long it too me to get into the writing zone. I got there but I was already exhausted. Most of the words I managed to write were a last minute push before I was completely wiped out and had to go to bed.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: All I want is more writing earlier in the day. I should have time to make it happen. It’ll just come down to my focus and determination.

February 17

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 867
  • Today’s word count: 69
  • Thoughts: My focus was divided today. Part of my attention tried to go to my writing and the rest of it just kind of floated around from one idea to the next. It wasn’t ideal.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I have errands to run. Hopefully I will be able to give writing the attention it deserves later in the day. I just have to avoid getting distracted.

February 18

No writing progress made. After I ran errands my brain was completely out of energy. I didn’t think it was worth it to push it.

February 19

No writing progress again. My brain still felt completely empty today. I don’t know what is going on but I have to assume I need rest. Hopefully giving myself a chance to rest and recover will make things go more smoothly tomorrow.

February 20

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 997
  • Today’s word count: 130
  • Thoughts: I ended up having a really rough day thanks to unexpected shoulder pain. It made it impossible for me to do much of anything for a while during the afternoon. Once it was okay enough for me to be able to move around again it was still annoying enough to make concentrating difficult. I’m surprised I managed to write at all.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: As long as my shoulder doesn’t somehow get messed up again by sleeping I should have plenty of time and energy to put toward writing. I’m really excited about the beginning of this story right now and I want to use that excitement to move things forward.
