Writing Journal 9.15.2021: Not too much to show for it… but I’m not just surrendering

If you couldn’t tell from my more recent post, I’ve had a time trying to write stuff this week.

There’s not too much of an explanation for it… but I’m proud that I’ve been at least tinkering around with trying to do something writing-wise. I don’t like to just write for the sake of it – I want to produce good material.

However, you inevitably face the idea that, if you want to write regularly, not all of your production is going to be first class, or even something you prefer that other people read. I’ve not gotten to that level recently, but I think I’m more understanding about those writers who prefer to keep some of their writings hidden permanently from public view (only to have well-meaning family or fans unearth them for good or for bad. I think Sir Terry Pratchett had the best idea when he had someone drive one of those asphalt rollers over a hard drive containing some unfinished/rough draft works after his death.

Anyway, here’s the stats. If I do the conversion of 500 words = 30 minutes of planning/revising, I’d add 2,000 more words to my total last week.

Of course, the numbers would still be unimpressive. At least, they would be less so. See you around and keep safe.

Writing statistics for the week ending 9.11.2021:
+1,088 words written.
Days writing: 2 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 2 of 7 for 120 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 3 of 7 days.
