Writing Journal 8.18.2021: A better week than the numbers might suggest

As I get closer to the start of the school year (whatever that looks like due to the Delta version of COVID), I’m quite curious about what affect it will have on my writing and work outside of my day job. I get the feeling that I might be more productive that I was during the summer. We will have to see.

As for this week, it might seem a drop from last week… but not exactly. Let me explain with the numbers.

Writing statistics for the week ending 8.14.2021:
+1,584 words written.
Days writing: 3 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 3 of 7 for 105 total minutes.
Daily WGM (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 5 of 7 days.

The week before last week, I wrote 3,986 words but spent no time revising or planning. Remember, every 30 minutes I spend revising/planning is the equivalent for me of 500 words. So, with that math, the 105 minutes I spent doing that last week is the equivalent of 1,750 words, which would give me an equivalent word count from last week of 3,334. That’s not more than last week, of course, but it is not a massive drop-off, either.

So, I will see how things go next week. So far, it looks like I’m making a good start of it, but we’ll see by next week, lol. Later.
