Writing Progress March 6–12, 2023

March 6

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 29,729
  • Today’s word count: 34
  • Thoughts: I wasn’t sure how today would go. Things were chaotic as they usually are on Mondays. It might have been more chaotic than average, actually. I watched my nephew in the morning and the evening. He was a happy kid. It’s just exhausting to have to be “on” for hours at a time when I’m not generally someone who needs all that much social time. On top of that, when I finally had the rest of the night to focus on my stuff, I got another migraine. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to write much more so I decided to go to bed.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Hopefully more writing will happen. I’d love to have another triple digit writing day like I did on Sunday. It’ll probably come down to whether or not I’m able to sleep off this migraine. Sometimes if I catch it fast enough and I’m able to actually sleep, it’s gone in the morning. Other times things don’t go my way and I ended up still fighting a migraine and sleep deprived.

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 29,766
  • Today’s word count: 37
  • Thoughts: I wrote. It was a bit of a struggle, but I got it done.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: It’s going to be a busy day, but I’m counting on having the focus to use the free time I find to get some writing done without a bunch of time to get settled in.

March 8

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 29,769
  • Today’s word count: 3
  • Thoughts: Well, things didn’t go exactly the way I wished they would go today. At least I’m pretty sure I know where everything went wrong. I got knocked off my routine. I couldn’t get back on it and everything went wrong from there.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I would love to get back on my routine. I’m not sure if I will manage it, but as long as I try, I think I’ll have a bit more luck with writing than I did today.

March 9

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 30,141
  • Today’s word count: 372
  • Thoughts: Today was a good writing day. I had a really solid writing session. this is the most I’ve written for one of my stories in months. I was disappointed when I started to get sleepy.I fought to keep my eyes open because I wanted to write more, but I slowed down enough that it made sense to stop.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: There are errands that need to be run in the morning. After that, I think my day will be pretty free. I’ll have things here and there that need to be done, but the weather is going to be pretty gloomy so it should be perfect conditions for getting cozy at my keyboard and writing some more.

No writing progress

Had a bit of a funky day. I blame the snow.

March 11

No writing progress

Compared to yesterday I have no idea what happened today. In theory, it should have been a good day for writing. I had time. There weren’t a ton of distractions. Well, there weren’t distractions until I made some for myself. That’s probably where everything went downhill.

Oh well. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

March 12

  • Project: The Dreams
  • Total word count: 30,272
  • Today’s word count: 131
  • Thoughts: I wrote in the morning today. That’s unusual. I didn’t plan it. I just happened to be sitting at my keyboard and the words came out on there own. I’m not complaining. I enjoy the times the writing is easy.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing, of course. I’m feeling reasonably optimistic I can do that. I don’t see any particularly big distractions on the horizon. I hope it stays that way.
