Writing Journal, 8 March 2023: Slightly slower last week, but I’ve started out at a good pace this year

[AUTHOR’S NOTE, 12 March 2023: Monthly figures for February 2023 recalculated.]

Welcome back, everyone.

Looking back on last week was a big different in the type of writing work I was doing. My sheer writing productivity (which was quite high the previous week) only took a little tumble last week, but I have been really busy revising my next book for publication.

Anyway, here’s the stats for last week.

Writing statistics for the week ending 4 March 2023:
+4,016 words written.
Days writing: 5 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 5 of 7 for 285 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 7 of 7 days.

Like I said, not bad – I’ll take at least 4,000 words a week any time. The February numbers impressed as well:

Writing statistics for February 2023:
Words: 15,754
Revisions/planning: 1,020 minutes
Daily Writing Goals Met: 97%

So, a bit under January’s great word total, high numbers when it comes to minutes spent revising and planning, and a near perfect meeting of my daily writing quotas.

I was happy to see this. Just two months into 2023, I’m more than 2,500 words above pace to reach 200,000 words this year. And I’ll smash the record of meeting my daily quotas if I keep this up, too.

That’s it for now, but keep watching this space this coming weekend. I have an announcement or two to make about the blog coming up, so keep an eye open for that.
