Writing Journal 8.12.2018: Numbers stable, but I’ve got a new short-term goal

Decided to give you a shot of the Mississippi River today to accompany this entry. (I wasn’t around this part of the river today, but I decided to make this work.)

Anyway, the numbers.

+395 words written.

Days writing: 1 out of 7.

Days revising: 5 out of 7 for 300 total minutes.

Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of revisions): 4 out of 7 days.

From a statistical standpoint, the numbers are more or less flat from last week’s performance. As I mentioned during the last piece, the end of my summer break is approaching and I am genuinely curious as to how much my work schedule will affect my writing activity.

A bit of this is unknown, since I am going to a new district with new duties. I have an idea of what they will be like, but it is a new culture, unknown students, etc. You never know what you are getting into until you are truly into it. I have to say that I truly enjoyed my previous district for the past three years and had no complaints about the workload I had or the support I had from staff and administration. I am getting similar good feelings and impressions from the new district, as well.

So, as an added short-term motivational tool, I have determined to finish my most recent revision of my WIP, The American Nine. I’m currently at page 237 out of 317, and I think that I can wrap that latest revision up by the end of this week. I definitely think that can be done.

I’ll get started on that later tonight, but I’m going to get some social media posts lined up for the next few days first.

That’s it for now; I’ll have more later.
