Writing Journal, 19 April 2023: Not the effort I expect from myself, honestly

I have to say last week wore me out mentally, as far as writing and revising went. Getting all the revising done for the second round of The Yank Striker was a days-long slog, even though it needed to be done. And, I just managed to get out the weekly newsletter and my piece about Substack Notes – even though the latter was typed out in a white heat on Sunday of this week, so it doesn’t count for last week’s numbers.

These are explanations for the lower numbers (even lower numbers for the revisions, which doesn’t quite make sense for me), but they are not excuses. Could I have gotten out a few more words during certain days? I definitely could. However, that is one of the reasons why I continue to publicly post these writing numbers. I want to make myself accountable, even if I’m the only one seeing these posts.

Anyway, here are my numbers. I’ll leave the rest of it to Saturday’s post.

Writing statistics for the week ending 15 April 2023:
+1,703 words written.
Days writing: 2 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 5 of 7 for 390 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 6 of 7 days.

That’s it; I’ll see you next week.
