I strictly edited tonight on a work in progress.

I don't really count words when I edit, but I have a roundabout way of giving myself pseudo-credit for word count while editing that usually equals out to 1/3rd of a word for each edited word.

Using that metric, I managed approximately 2.5k words worth of editing tonight.

I can, for now, join this group.

While I write everyday, I'd be lying if I said I regularly write a thousand words a day.

After spending most of 2017 writing a 55k-word novel and a few short stories, all of which were handwritten written at a pace of a few hundred words a day, I've spent the last few days in front of Scrivener, tearing through a novelette-novella that is thus far just shy of 20k words.  I'm a teacher and an attorney as well as a husband and a father of three cats, and this is the first time in many projects that I've averaged over 1k words a day. 

Yesterday I wrote 1,900 words.  We'll see what today brings.  8)

Feb 14th: 1,345 words
Monthly Total: 55,482 / 120,000

Not as much words as I would have liked but it was Valentine's Day and I had a hot date with my man. I'll take 1,300 words. Better than zero!

9K written on a new book and 9K edited. I also added another 9K of editing to my totals from yesterday before going to bed last night. I might do the same tonight but I'm going to Target first.

4,250 (approx)

Very productive night for me. I used a countdown timer for the first time in a while, with 15 minute increments, and spent almost 4 full hours writing.

About 1k words tonight, which gets me up to approximately 7k (28 pages) for the week, not counting the editing work that I did.

I wanted to do more tonight, but after a very distracting and chaotic day, this'll have to work. I feel like I'm on the upswing on word count right now, and hoping to do better next week.

A few months back I went through a period were I was staying well above 10k most weeks. The higher productivity was motivated by the pressure of trying to meet a pre-order deadline. I didn't enjoy the pressure, but the word counts were nice, and I proved to myself during that stretch that I'm capable of more. I don't need to hit 15k a week or anything to be satisfied. If I can just average 10k a week, which should be doable, then I'll be able to achieve most of my productivity goals for the year without any trouble.

//edited because I originally put 750 words, then realized I started today with 24 pages instead of 25, so I actually wrote about 1k. Not a particularly significant difference in the larger scheme of things, but it definitely makes me feel a little better about my output anyway.
