Writing Journal 13 September 2022: If I could have a week like this every week, I would

Again, I’ll keep this short.

This past weekend felt like actual September should be like, not like an encore of August or maybe July. I would say October and either March or April are about the only months in Iowa where the weather is about perfect for my taste. Most older people are sick enough to want to retire to Florida or Arizona – I would prefer to retire to Minnesota. I would prefer to live somewhere where there are cool temperatures and that I won’t be either out of water or get flooded by seawater, thank you very much.

Minnesota does look pretty, doesn’t it?

Here’s another look.

Anyway, the writing went all right last week. Not a record-breaking week, but… honestly, if I managed to get this much writing taken care of every week, I would easily meet this year’s goals of 200,000 words written and meeting my daily writing goals at least 70 percent of the time. As I reported recently, I’m well on my way to making that goal, but I want to keep consistent. Making sure that I have that consistency has been what I have found to be a key to being productive.

Just a quick reminder: I’ve got an event this Saturday at the public library in Badger, Iowa. Here’s a link to all the information.

Anyway, here’s the numbers for this week. Writers keep writing and everyone keep safe.

Writing statistics for the week ending 10 September 2022:
+4,473 words written.
Days writing: 5 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 1 of 7 for  120 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 5 of 7 days.
