Writing Progress January 2–8, 2023

January 2

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 27,861
  • Today’s word count: 27
  • Thoughts: Well, I wrote one whole word more today than yesterday. That’s something. I’m just having some trouble settling in and really focusing on what I’m doing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I have a feeling it is going to be more of the same, but I’m going to do my very best to get some writing done. I can’t wait to see what I can accomplish.

January 3

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 27,878
  • Today’s word count: 17
  • Thoughts: I wrote a little bit. It wasn’t much. At least I wrote something. It wasn’t the worst day I’ve had lately. It just wasn’t particularly good.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: The plan is to have fun at the park with my nephew. After that, I don’t know what I’ll end up doing. Hopefully I’ll find some time to write.

No writing progress

It was a chaotic, but good day. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.

January 5

No writing progress

It ended up being a really good day even without writing. I spent a ton of time with my boyfriend. We’re making the most of his vacation week. We took a walk and rearranged the garage. Busy, busy day.

January 6

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 27,887
  • Today’s word count: 9
  • Thoughts: I wrote! It wasn’t much. I knew it wasn’t going to be much. We ran our usual Friday errands and then I spent a lot of time trying my best to make the most of one of the last days of my boyfriend’s week off from work. I think we’ve been doing a good job of balancing getting stuff done around the house and having fun, but my writing has suffered some. I know I write better when I’m alone and can control my distractions and I haven’t been alone much this week. Things will go back to normal soon and hopefully I’ll be more productive.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: As long as I write something I’ll be happy.

January 7

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 27,902
  • Today’s word count: 15
  • Thoughts: I was pretty thoroughly distracted again today. It was a good day. I played a video game and a board game. I got a bunch of chores done. I watched a movie. It was a pretty wonderful last day for my boyfriend’s vacation. I just didn’t manage to make much time for writing, but I did make some time and that’s better than nothing.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m going to be busy. There’s a ton of stuff I want to get caught up on around the house even after today. Hopefully I will still find some time to write at some point.

January 8

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 27,905
  • Today’s word count: 3
  • Thoughts: I wrote. That’s what I wanted to do. I barely did it, but I did do it. That counts for something, I guess.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Let’s see if I can write more than today. Shouldn’t be hard, right?
