I’m making some excellent progress this week. I’ve been writing a bit, both “work” and “fun” type writings.
I even got a new podcast episode done after a long hiatus from doing them. Even though the latter really doesn’t count toward any of my writing goals, it’s been a fun thing to do and I quickly got readjusted to using the editing software with the Anchor platform. I really like its simplicity and no-fuss setup.
Now that I think about it, I might wind up doing a review for that platform if I’m looking to write about something random this weekend. Also, I think I might try and keep to a consistent writing schedule for those weekend posts. Maybe 5 p.m. on Saturdays? Now, let’s see me try to keep to that, heh heh.
I’ll be interested to see what my final tally for this October will be. If I have a few more weeks in a row like I have last week, I’m feeling like I will be celebrating reaching my 200,000-word goal for 2022 a bit early – how early, it is tough to say. The next time I do one of these journals, I might have to calculate when that point might be next week. It feels a lot better than this same time last year when I realized I was going to have a worse writing year than the last one by almost every metric. Deciding to set a yearly goal in addition to my daily quotas was one of the best ideas I’ve had to help with my writing productivity.
Anyway, here’s the numbers for last week. Again, they’re looking good… and for all you writers out there, I hope you are having a great writing week as well. If not, don’t worry – you can turn it around next week. I’m definitely proof of that.
