DailyWritingProgress

March 26

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 156,126
  • Today’s word count: 641
  • Thoughts: Today was a productive day. I was worried at first. I struggled to come up with words and wasn’t sure where I was taking the scene anymore, but I got through it and I’m pretty happy with the results.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. I’m going to get a chapter posted!

March 27

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 156,330
  • Today’s word count: 204
  • Thoughts: I got another chapter posted today! I also wrote a bit. I feel like I should have written more, but I needed a long break after getting the chapter posted before I felt ready to write again.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! The scene I’m working on now feels like it is going to have a lot of exciting energy. I’m hopeful that I will pick up on that energy and allow it to carry me to a high word count.

March 28

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 156,869
  • Today’s word count: 539
  • Thoughts: I struggled to get the words flowing today. Right before I was prepared to give up and go to sleep, I was struck with some inspiration and wrote the words I needed to get out.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Find that inspiration and make it work for me again. Maybe if I find it early enough, I’ll write even more!

March 29

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 157,104
  • Today’s word count: 235
  • Thoughts: Today was not as productive as I hoped it would be. I wish I knew why. I was able to write and excited to do it, but it just didn’t work out like I hoped.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising. Everything!

March 30

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 157,705
  • Today’s word count: 601
  • Thoughts: Today was productive toward the end. I was impressed. Fridays are rarely this good.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. Get a chapter posted?

March 31

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 158,093
  • Today’s word count: 388
  • Thoughts: Today was a really productive day. I wrote. I revised. I got a chapter posted on Saturday for the first time in forever. Hopefully I can keep it up during April.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: CampNaNoWriMo! I want to work on both The Dreams and Inbetween. That’s a tall order since I’m going to have a busy day with family and some chores that didn’t get done today. Should be fun no matter what!

April 1

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 158,209
  • Today’s word count: 116
  • Thoughts: Today was not a stellar start to CampNaNoWriMo. I didn’t even work on the project I declared for Camp. That sounds bad, but it’s not! I wrote for the story I was most excited about. That just didn’t result in many words. I was busy with Easter and family stuff most of the day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Dive back into writing. I need to get my word count up and really start to make progress.

March 19

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 154,309
  • Today’s word count: 139
  • Thoughts: Today was a very productive day, contrary to my word count. I got a chapter revised and posted with a new cover!
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I’m looking forward to it.

March 20

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 154,415
  • Today’s word count: 106
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t a particularly good day for my word count. I kept fixing the small amount I had already written which didn’t increase my word count. I was also distracted by the snow. I can’t concentrate when I could be watching snowflakes instead.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Ignore the snow. Write!

March 21

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 154,725
  • Today’s word count: 310
  • Thoughts: I was still distracted by snowy weather today. It was a miracle I got as much done as I did considering how much time I spent looking out the window and checking weather forecasts.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Some revising. I want to get back to a productive place.

March 22

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 154,926
  • Today’s word count: 201
  • Thoughts: Today was a kinda crappy writing day. My sinuses were not kind to me and I just wanted to sleep most of the day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to writing. I have a lot of words to write and I have to believe I can do it.

March 23

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 155,140
  • Today’s word count: 214
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t a bad day considering it was a Friday. I still struggle on Fridays so any progress feels like a victory.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’m going to have a busy day. I’ll be making desserts for Sunday as well as dinner for tonight with my mom. I’m going to do my best to write before and after that so I hope I will make some progress. With any luck I’ll have time to revise too.

March 24

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 155,271
  • Today’s word count: 131
  • Thoughts: It wasn’t possible to do everything I hoped to do, but I’m happy I managed to accomplish anything since I was out of the house nearly all day.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I have another busy day ahead of me, but I’m hoping I will have time and enough energy after I get home to write.

March 25

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 155,485
  • Today’s word count: 214
  • Thoughts: I was so tired after being busy for the first half of the day. No matter how much I wanted to write, there was just no way I was going to have the energy to sit down and do it. I tried. I made a small amount of progress. I guess I shouldn’t complain.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: I’ll be home all day and able to write. I hope to make significant progress on writing and revising. I have to make it happen. This is the final week before CampNaNoWriMo starts. I have to get my writing skills back up to par and fast!

DailyWritingProgress

March 12

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 152,381
  • Today’s word count: 646
  • Thoughts: Today was a productive day. It took me a while to get started, but when I did, it went really well.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing! I seem to have figured out how I want to write this part of the story so I need to keep moving forward.

March 13

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 152,612
  • Today’s word count: 231
  • Thoughts: Today was not as productive writing-wise as yesterday. I wish I could have written more, but it just wasn’t in the cards. A lot of time was spend fiddling with a few words. My mind wouldn’t let me proceed without changing those words because having the wrong ones there made everything that came after feel wrong.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Get back on track with my writing! Let’s see if I can find the time and motivation to clean up a bit more of draft 3 of The Dreams for my patrons as well. I’ve been putting that off way too often lately.

March 14

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 153,151
  • Today’s word count: 539
  • Thoughts: Today was a productive day. I accomplished a lot and then got an anxiety attack for no reason at all. Lucky me. I stayed up late because I couldn’t sleep and tried to write more. It sort of worked.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising. Maybe some relaxing?

March 15

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 153,298
  • Today’s word count: 147
  • Thoughts: Writing today was hard. I wasn’t thinking all that clearly when I wrote yesterday and while I like what I wrote, I can’t seem to figure out where I was going with it.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. Revising. I’ll make it work.

March 16

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 153,511
  • Today’s word count: 213
  • Thoughts: Today wasn’t too bad for a Friday. I really struggle on Fridays. Well, I think I beat the odds this week.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: More writing. More revising. Let’s go!

March 17

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 153,570
  • Today’s word count: 59
  • Thoughts: Today was not a good writing day, but I spent most of my writing time otherwise occupied. I’m not mad or upset about it. The time was well spent.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Back to work. I have writing and revising to do. With any luck I’ll get a chapter posted.

March 18

  • Project: Inbetween
  • Total word count: 154,170
  • Today’s word count: 600
  • Thoughts: Today was a productive day. I wasn’t sure I could pull it off at first, but I couldn’t sleep. That almost never results in a good word count, but today it did. I’m not complaining.
  • Tomorrow’s goal: Writing, revising and I really need to get a chapter posted. I’m late! Sorry!
