Writing Journal, 22 March 2023: A slight slowdown this week, but not horrific

[PHOTO NOTE: Decided to post one last wintry picture of the backyard with spring coming on.]

And it’s time once again to report on my productivity for last week. Or, report on the lack of it, whatever the case might be. It’s more of the latter this week.

I could give the excuse that I was concentrated more on finishing the first round of my revisions for The Yank Striker, and that would be an accurate statement. I could also say that I was quite busy hosting a meeting for my writing group this Saturday and getting some paperwork done for them during that time, and I would also be speaking truthfully. However, that would not totally explain my slump and would certainly not excuse it.

About the only comfort that I can take from this slowdown is that it is not a total collapse of productivity. The more that I have been studying and monitoring my productivity over the years, the more that I have control over my consistency and more time between “dry” spells. The greater my awareness of how I work, the better I am at growing my productivity, and I’m certain the data I’ve collected over the years has been a big factor in that awareness.

With all that said, here’s the stats for last week.

Writing statistics for the week ending 18 March 2023:
+2,251 words written.
Days writing: 5 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 2 of 7 for 240 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 5 of 7 days.

That’s it for now. Keep posted here and/or to my Substack to see what I’ve been up to and writing about.
