Writing Progress March 7–13, 2022

March 7

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 1,939
  • Today’s word count: 35
  • Thoughts: Health issues continue to get in the way of my writing. My sinuses weren’t as bad for most of the day (until evening when thunderstorms rolled through and the temperature dropped fast) but my left wrist decided to be swollen and angry again. I’m not sure when or how it got injured, but using it just a bit too much is all it takes for it to be unusable.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Rest and sleep will hopefully help my wrist. I need to balance getting as much done as possible while my wrist will hold up with not overdoing it and making my wrist worse. I want this problem to go away as soon as possible so I don’t have to spend ages trying to squeeze a couple dozen words out before things get bad again.

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 2,021
  • Today’s word count: 82
  • Thoughts: I’m still not where I want to be writing-wise, but things went better today than they have the last few days. Rina is interacting with her best friend and that always makes the words come to me a bit easier. Hopefully I will continue to build up momentum for a while.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’s going to be a rainy and snowy day. I’m not going anywhere. I just hope I will feel up to writing.

March 9

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 2,064
  • Today’s word count: 43
  • Thoughts: I’m in the same place I’ve been for days. I want to write. I have the time to write. My body just can’t handle writing. If it isn’t my wrist, it’s my sinuses. It jumps back and forth and I keep wondering if I’m just making excuses. I’m not, but I sort of wish I was. Then I could just change my attitude and get things done.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: The weather is supposed to stabilize a bit so I’m hoping my sinuses will stop being incredibly upset for a little while. I’d really like to have a day of clarity to get writing done.

March 10

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 2,074
  • Today’s word count: 10
  • Thoughts: Today was not my day. The weather continues to be topsy-turvy and it is messing with me.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I have errands to run and they can’t wait because we’re supposed to get a nasty late season snow storm on Saturday.

March 11 & 12

No writing progress

A migraine kicked my butt. I didn’t even try to write.

March 13

No writing progress made once again.

The migraine lingered, but I pushed through it to do the one thing at the top of my priority list. We looked at a house. We loved it. We put in an offer. I’m glad we did it but it was a lot to do with a migraine still making me feel off.
