Writing Journal 8.16.2020: Got some writing done, but I think I always feel like it’s never enough

I’ll make this quick.

As I am hurtling toward the new school year (whatever that looks like – the only thing I think I can be assured of is that it will not go as planned and that’s all I’ll say here), I always feel like I wasted time that I could have been using writing.

I look at the projects that are on tap for me and think about how much I have left undone.

However, I think a little longer and think back to the times when I went without writing anything for months and years at a time. I feel grateful that I have set myself up in a way that is intended to keep me writing consistently if not at a Stephen King-level pace. And, I’m grateful of the stuff I have accomplished. I’m writing and revising at a better pace from year to year. That’s a good thing.

That’s going to be it for now. On tap for this week, at least one Lord of the Rings read review and maybe a Writer’s Biography piece.

Here’s the stats. Not too much change statistically from last week. Take care, everyone.

+5,242 words written.
Days writing: 5 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 2 of 7 for  60 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 5 of 7 days.
