Writing Progress March 21–27, 2022

March 21

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 2,182
  • Today’s word count: 15
  • Thoughts: I wrote a bit today, but I was all over the place, honestly. This isn’t a surprise. There’s been way too much going on lately for me to feel like I can settle into writing. It requires too much thinking and whenever I have time to think these days I end up thinking about everything I still need to do for buying our house.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’ll try to be more settled and write more. I don’t know if I can expect it to happen but I hope it will.

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 2,193
  • Today’s word count: 11
  • Thoughts: I spent so much time trying to write today. We’re talking about about four hours split up through the day. All I managed in all that time was 11 words. This is what I mean when I talk about writer’s block. There’s too much on my mind. I’m anxious and restless and the words are getting lost on their way out of my brain.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully I’ll be able to sit down and just let the words out for once. It shouldn’t be this hard. It won’t always be this hard but it certainly feels like a bleak and endless tunnel while I’m here.

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 2,753
  • Today’s word count: 560
  • Thoughts: It actually happened! I sat down and the words actually came out when I tried to write. It wasn’t a torrential flood of words like I’d hoped. It still took me a solid chunk of time and a lot of concentration to get the words out. I’m just glad the words were there and willing to come out.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Is it too much to hope for a repeat of today? There’s so much I want to write and I feel like I’m finally starting to move forward again. I don’t want that to stop after just one day.

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 2,771
  • Today’s word count: 18
  • Thoughts: I’m so disappointed. I’d hoped after yesterday I had started a new trend with my writing. However, I was back to being distracted today. Every time there is a new development with buying the house I feel like my mind fills up with too many thoughts and I can’t wade past them to get back to writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: There are so many errands to run in the morning. I don’t know what to expect in the afternoon, but I will probably be pretty worn out. I’d love to rest up and get a good sprint of writing in before it is time to go to bed again.

No writing progress made today.

Today was a lot. I thought I had things under control for a while, but before I knew it, I was beyond tired and incapable of doing anything productive. That isn’t to say nothing got done today! It just wasn’t creative things I managed to do.

  • Total word count: 2,792
  • Today’s word count: 21
  • Thoughts: I have no idea how I managed to write anything at all today. I was absolutely miserable and ended up sleeping for over 10 hours split over two sleeps. Sometime between my first sleep and the second I wrote a handful of words. Honestly, I don’t have must memory of doing it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully I’ll feel better and I can get back to writing. I should have time. It’ll come down to how much energy I have to use during the time I have.

March 27

No writing progress made yet again.

I ended up feeling awful again. There were periods of time during the day I might have been able to write but they were fleeting and there were other things that needed to be done too.
