Week 2 officially ended on when Friday the 15th began but I didn't have a chance to open up my laptop until now. By Thursday the 14th my progress toward my goals (which are 3000/week, at least 12k/month, 150k for 2016, try to fit editing in when possible), stood at:
|F||1/8|| || ||504|
|S||1/9|| || || |
|S||1/10|| ||1,261|| |
|M||1/11|| || || |
|T||1/12|| || || |
|W||1/13|| ||910|| |
|T||1/14|| ||527|| |
2 TOTAL: 3203 words
Which keeps me on pace for 2016's goals:
|Total Words Written So Far||9,102|
|Total Hours Spent Writing||10.10|

|Avg Words Written Per Day||827|
|Avg Hours Writing Per Day||0.92|
|Avg Words Per Hour||901|

|Number of Words Remaining||140,898|
|Number of Days Remaining||355|
|Number of Hours Remaining||156.00|
I knew this week would be hard on me because I was over-scheduled with other things and my 9-5 this week was very demanding (and was more like 8a-7p) while I did a lot of prep/research/planning work that is very deadline driven such that I can hit deadlines for the next six months.
Thus, writing was ALL ABOUT LOW HANGING FRUIT WITH HIGH PAYOFF. I promised myself that before the end of January I would finish the first pass of a brainstorming treatment for "into the blender" Orig Proj 2 (a novel). Enough of this story is bubbling around in my head that if I just sit and type, something vaguely useful will happen. So, that is what I did during spare moments when awake enough to type.
The good thing is that I am averaging 900 words/hour when writing things that come to me more easily. That means that 3000 words/week isn't impossible.
More later, especially on Orig Proj 2. I need to do nine thousand things this weekend and all of it is on a time crunch.
