Writing Journal, 10 May 2023: This was a bit late…

[AUTHOR’s NOTE: Well, this is bizarre – I didn’t set this up to publish on last Wednesday like I normally do. Well, better late than never, anyway.]

Welcome back.

I was a bit surprised to see as much productivity as I have this previous week. I have been spending some time looking over some of my past writing journals. I was a bit embarrassed, especially in 2019 and 2020, just flake out on blogging a lot of times because I wasn’t ambitious enough or motivated enough to get a regular blogging schedule going. I feel much better looking over 2022 and the first part of 2023 and seeing much more regular posting. If I get really good I might do better than posting twice a week on WordPress and Substack combined.

With a bit of hard writing at both ends of the week and some thorough revision work in the middle, I ended up with some numbers that I’m quite happy with. I’m hoping this can be part of a good streak, although I think it is better to be consistent rather than really great one week and terrible the next. I’ve been having better results, anyway.

Anyway, here’s the stats for last week.

Writing statistics for the week ending 6 May 2023:
+5,640 words written.
Days writing: 4 of 7.
Days revising/planning: 5 of 7 for 390 total minutes.
Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 7 of 7 days.

That’s it for now. Hope to see you around soon.
