Writing Journal 7.21.2021: Worst week this year

[AUTHOR’S NOTE: I typed in “Worst week ever” for my Pexels image search and the featured image was one of the images that popped up.]

I’m not even going to try to whitewash things today: Last week was a disgrace for me writing. Absolutely the worst writing week I’ve had all year after one of the best ones last week.

I could mention that I had finally gotten a new laptop after a week of mucking around with the old one, I could tell you that I got hit with the procrastination bug – but that would all be excuses. I just need to sit down and freaking write and get it over with, starting with this blog.

It never ceases to stun me how when I have more time than I could ever make use of over the past several weeks that I haven’t made use of it at all. Sometimes I waste time so much it’s disheartening to me.

The one good thing I can say in my defense this week is that I am sticking to this new program of doing the basic journal updates on the Wednesdays after my writing week and my more feature-type blogs on Saturdays, as well as some other times during the weekend. In fact, right after I finish this blog, I’m going to look through my drafts to see which one might be the best candidate for this coming Saturday.

So, here are the stats, for those who want a laugh. I know I’ll manage better this week. Hopefully, I’ll manage a lot better.

Writing statistics for the week ending 7.17.2021:
+553 words written.
Days writing: 2 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 1 of 7 for 30 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 1 of 7 days.
