Day 271 – Progress Report

Current Project: Memoir Status: In Progress Time Spent: 

  • Writing: 21 hrs.
  • Blogging: 2 hrs.
  • Networking:  0 hrs.
  • Reading: 10 hrs.
  • Words: ???

Last week blew, but this week rocked. Twenty hours is the magic number. A writer I know had a teacher in college who insisted that you won’t see significant progress in your career if you aren’t writing at least 20 hours a week and after my experience last week, I kinda believe it. I don’t know what my word count is because I lost track because of edits. Usually, I’ve been writing in beats that kinda frame up as short stories because if I think of this project as a book I panic. However, this week I put all my completed beats into a single document and edited them so that they’d hang together. That included significant edits and I didn’t track how much I took out and put it. But holy crap you guys! I came away from this week really feeling like I could actually pull this thing off.
