Writing Progress June 20–26, 2022

June 20

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,322
  • Today’s word count: 31
  • Thoughts: Today was interesting. I went on another walk and it was wonderful. Then I ended up playing with/entertaining my nephew a lot in the evening and I could feel the time and energy I had to put into writing dwindling. I wish I could have written more but I have nothing to blame other than my own choices.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m going to try to be better with time management. I need to set aside time earlier in the day to write and hope that helps. I guess we will see how that goes when I update tomorrow.

June 21

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,334
  • Today’s word count: 12
  • Thoughts: My first mistake(?) today was setting an alarm to see the first sunrise of summer. I was only awake for a few minutes to acknowledge the sun before going back to sleep for a little while, but later in the day I really felt the interruption to my sleep. I had static in my brain for a lot of the day. I managed to get a blog post out, but once that was done I was pretty near out of writing energy.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m hoping for better, longer sleep. Then I should have what it takes to get some real writing done.

June 22

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,397
  • Today’s word count: 63
  • Thoughts: I wasn’t sure I’d be able to write at all today. I felt all over the place for a lot of the day and a lot of unexpected things kept popping up and dragging me further away from the tasks I wanted to do. At the end of the day, I managed to squeeze in some writing time.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: The forecast says to expect a rainy, overcast day and much cooler temperatures. I’m hoping to turn into that into cozy writing time. I always seem to write a bit more when I’m not trying to cool off all day.

June 23

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,400
  • Today’s word count: 3
  • Thoughts: Today was a not a productive day. I had some fun in between some serious periods of random stressful stuff. It rained a lot today, but it cleared up in the evening so I was able to take a walk. That helped me work off some stress, but it didn’t leave me with much time for writing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Fridays are errand days. It’s also my boyfriend’s birthday. I don’t know if I’ll get around to writing or not but I’m going to try.

June 24 & 25

No writing progress

It was my boyfriend’s birthday on Friday so I’m not surprised I didn’t write then. However, on Saturday, I just didn’t want to write. It was hot and humid. I just wanted to keep cool and writing didn’t feel particularly cool.

June 26

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 4,456
  • Today’s word count: 56
  • Thoughts: I got back to writing! It was still obnoxiously hot and humid, but I managed to conserve my energy and get some writing time in after dark when things started to cool off. It worked. Sort of. I wish I’d written more.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’s supposed to be a bit cooler. It’s still going to be hot. It’s summer. And it will be extremely humid, but hopefully my brain won’t melt since it will only be in the 80s. I’ve got plenty of stuff waiting to be written.
