Writing Journal 7.14.2019: Slowly pulling out of the slump

Well, things are still not as good and productive as I want them to be, but my productivity is slowly crawling up – definitely an improvement over the past week. So, maybe I’ll avoid looking like a jerk.

As you might tell from previous posts, I take my data and productivity numbers very seriously. I believe it’s one of the reasons why I’ve managed to actually get back into writing after many years of just sitting around and saying I was a writer and doing nothing about it. So, any improvement on numbers is a great thing.\

Speaking of which, here are the numbers for last week:

+674 words written.

Days writing: 2 of 7.

Days revising/planning: 6 of 7 for 300 total minutes.

Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 6 of 7 days.

Better than last week, but I want to and need to improve.

So, a quick word on the projects I am currently working on. (Go here if you want to find out details on them and when I am hoping to get them done.)

  • Project A: Continuing another revision on this. Soon I should be ready for a proofread edit. I am just barely beginning to research possible agents and publishers.
  • Project B: Nothing for weeks. I plan to make progress on it this week.
  • Project C: Found a lost poem in my notebooks I plan to transcribe. Barely beginning researching possible outlets for some of my poetry. I’m thinking local outlets if possible, maybe concentrating on Iowa authors.
  • Project F: Not too much, but I am playing around with Wonderdraft and I think I have a good starting model of my fantasy world. I’ll play around with that for a while if I feel stuck on anything else.
  • Project S: I think I’m almost finished, but I’m sort of reluctant to have it completed. I think that I would post it here in sections, because I’m obviously not monetizing it. This was more of a therapy for me than anything else. I might post the first part of it right away just to motivate me to wrap it up.

That’s it for now – I’m sorry this was so late tonight. I’ll try to do better next week, as always.
