Writing Progress June 6–12, 2022

June 6

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,053
  • Today’s word count: 1
  • Thoughts: Yup. I wrote one word. I really, really wanted to write today but by the time I had a chance to sit down and really focus on it, I was already exhausted. I was falling asleep at the keyboard before I even got started. I like the word I wrote, at least.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Maybe I’ll write two words? Hopefully I’ll manage more than that, but doubling today’s word count is a doable goal.

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,061
  • Today’s word count: 8
  • Thoughts: I’m still running out of energy by the time I am able to sit down and focus on writing. Some of it is just having very weak writing muscles at the moment. Fifteen minutes is more than enough time to write a decent chunk of words if I’m in good writing condition. Just right now. I struggle to get started and I’m too tired to stay up for hours trying to warm up the writing part of my brain. I’ll get there eventually. I’m just impatient.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I want to keep the writing streak going. I’m hoping to get back to writing every day this month. Camp NaNoWriMo is happening again in July so I’m aiming to get back in the habit before then.

  • Total word count: 4,072
  • Today’s word count: 11
  • Thoughts: I’m writing every day! I can’t explain how excited I am to be back to writing again every day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully I can keep the streak going. I’m getting back in the habit of writing one day at a time!

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,082
  • Today’s word count: 10
  • Thoughts: I’m keeping the writing streak going. I’m really impatient to get back to writing more at once. The small amount of writing I’ve managed day to day isn’t cutting it for me. However, I did manage to pick strawberries today. Not writing related, but still fun!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: My hopes aren’t high for Friday. I have errands to run and there’s still so much left to do around the house. I’m not sure where writing will fit into my day.

I was right. Everything I needed to do ended up being a bit too much to fit writing in too.

No writing progress

Today was a bit of a different story. I had more strawberries to pick and we stuck with it a lot longer. At the end of picking we brought home about 8 gallons of strawberries. Cleaning them up ate up another chunk of the day. By the time it was all done and I could think about writing, I was exhausted and ready to climb into bed.

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,095
  • Today’s word count: 13
  • Thoughts: I got back to writing while still dealing with an abundance of strawberries. I think after this evening we’re getting close to the end of the strawberries. Hopefully I will soon have more time and energy for writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Less strawberries. Well, less strawberry prep work. I’m going to be eating a lot of strawberries for a while. Maybe I’ll finally get around to setting my goal for Camp NaNoWriMo!
