I had a headache yesterday. Even so, I still wrote for 2 hours and 10 minutes and wrote 1,842 words. I have to say, I’m on a fantastic pace with this book. I’m not sure why, but I’m really going to keep trying to keep it up. Saturday’s session logs: Minutes Words Session WPH 36Continue reading “Slipped but didn’t fall”
I decided last night that I needed to focus on writing about results instead of intentions, thinking that would mean I’d have a better chance of getting started on time this morning and staying on schedule. That didn’t exactly work, although I did manage to get my 3 hours before lunch and get my lastContinue reading “No plan today: I’m already there”
I’m really into the construction analogies at the moment, apparently. :D But yes, today’s plan is to do my best to repeat yesterday’s excellent performance. The only thing I can really control is how much time I spend writing and if I spend that time when I plan to spend it. The WPH is aContinue reading “Sink that nail”
Finally, I seem to be on my way to nailing the schedule/routine today! I made a note to myself this morning in Evernote: Remember not to try to play catch up with the writing. Just work on getting my 4 hours during my routine and reaching 3233. If I want to write more or ifContinue reading “Already in motion”
I didn’t write for 4 hours yesterday. Not even close. Today I will try again. It really shouldn’t be as hard as it always seems to be. It doesn’t make sense. So, today—even though I don’t like doing it this way—I’m setting my morning timer for 3 hours and I’m not doing separate sessions ofContinue reading “Write longer”
I didn’t nail it yesterday. I didn’t even come close. Today, I’m trying again. I’m not worrying about the schedule. I’m worrying about my 4 hours. I want to get them done by 2 pm if I can. After that, I’ll coast, maybe even do some playing around with covers. :) I’ll try to takeContinue reading “Pick up the hammer and try again”
It’s a beautiful day outside my window today. I’m sitting in my study / sitting room (no longer a library as I moved all the books out into my former office upstairs that’s about to become my library as soon as I can afford the bookcases I need for all those books!) and I have myContinue reading “Nail it”
It was a fantastic day for writing, I have to say. I made a great recovery after yesterday’s apparent self-sabotage (I did get 720 words yesterday so it wasn’t a total loss). Minutes Words Session WPH 45 863 863 1,151 45 1,713 850 1,133 45 2,312 599 799 45 3,452 1,140 1,520 45 4,241 789Continue reading “Today’s final numbers”
Well. Unless I can write 2x what I needed to write to reach my 42,000 words in 10 days challenge, I’ve really blown this one. I’ve been working, but I haven’t written any appreciable number of words in the last 4 days. That leaves me 6 days. But no, it really doesn’t, because I haveContinue reading “42,000 words in 10 days: day 5”
I’m going to try again today to break my new one-day word count record. :) I didn’t do well with that challenge on Sunday, ending the day early with only 535 words. Today I expect better. But first I have to get off the WIFI and get started, so I’ll be back later with details.Continue reading “Trying today to write more than 5,221 words”
Today I plan to write a lot of words. Not hope, or will try, but absolutely plan to. I will push myself to get more if I slow down too much, and the story will come together. I want to finish this book asap so I can write a few others I want to writeContinue reading “Work Diary for November 9, 2015*”
Success! I’m writing this in Evernote today so I can have the accountability without the WIFI. ;) I need accountability. FYI: This turned out to be one long log! TMI warning! 8:02 am— Starting with a 50 minute timed session of writing. Playlist is playing. Book doc is open. And yes, I’m still working inContinue reading “Breaking my one-day word count record—attempt #3”
Today’s goal post. Whoa.
1st 50 minute session = 471 words
My first day following my new schedule.
A writing experiment.
A follow up experiment in planning.
