Progress Report 2020 #33

It’s Friday, time to look at what we’ve done for the last week.

Words written (week/YTD): 15,336 / 459,295

747-words of admin + 7 projects. 

This week was rough. I don’t even have an explanation for it. I just didn’t get much done.

In an odd twist, the usual rule of: more projects = more words didn’t hold true this week. My brain was apparently scattered, but not in an “at least I’m productive” way.

Letting that go, though, because dwelling is the opposite of productive, and spending too much time on that, means next week's numbers will also be down. And while I am keeping ahead of my baseline goal for the month the two other tiers are presently out of reach. At this point, I’m hoping to catch up with the midline, but have no plans to stress myself out over the “best” month numbers.

One of the reasons I do these updates is because checking in periodically helps remind me where I’m at.
If one day feels like I did ALL THE THINGS, and another feels like I did jack all… it can be hard to remember that there were days in between that I managed to bop along at a steady pace without causing any real problems. Or, on the reverse, feeling like that one day was enough to carry me, and I got lazy (the daily count usually helps keep that from happening, but still…).

15 pages edited

How about we blame this on the dogs… and not the fact that I should have known better than to try to edit on the floor?


I’ve been putting off editing for a little bit, partially because my normal editing space is a mess and I’ve been too lazy to clean it off, partially because I know that drafting Amy was a jerk and I’m going to want to invent a time machine to travel back and slap her in the face.
But I have a block of time carved out of my schedule this weekend… we’ll see if that number is higher next time.

What I’m reading

I slammed two romance novels last weekend. Sometimes those are like shots. Quick, not always pleasant, but they get the job done.

They put me to “8 books ahead of schedule” on my (admittedly low) GoodReads challenge for the year. I’m starting to think it might be worth it to schedule a vacation where I pack a suitcase of books, go to a cabin in the woods somewhere by myself and just read for a week. *daydreams*
