I have a spreadsheet in which I keep track of my words. I had planned to take a few minutes during lunch to write my blog post there, but I couldn’t find my spreadsheet in the cloud. I had to call home, warn the person using my computer I was going to log in, and then I found it. Completely in the wrong spot, naturally.
Yesterday’s writing was 259 for blogs, 444 for fiction. The afternoon was rough, although not insurmountably so. It resulted in more Mad Men than was strictly necessary, and the consumption of the remaining eggnog in the refrigerator.
Here’s where I stand for the past week:
Weekly total words: 6,608
Weekly total fiction words: 4,457
Weekly total blog words: 2,151
Difference from last week: -25%
Weekly rank: 2 (of 3)
Average weekly words: 5292
Difference in average words from last week: 14%
I’m not satisfied with my weekly fiction totals and intend to improve those numbers this week. It will take quite a bit of work, especially since I’m entering my last half hour of wakefulness for the day and running out of time to write. I’m sure that won’t stop me from trying, though. 😉
