Anyone else writing sporadically?


Here's my daily word count log:

Day 1: 673 words
Day 2: 2598
Day 3: 288
Day 4: 0
Day 5: 0
Day 6: 0
Day 7: 5031
Day 8: 3508
Day 9: 0
Day 10: 0
Day 11: 1118
Day 12: 2674
Day 13: 0
Day 14: 3885
Day 15: 2805 (so far)

Might be a little bit better if I tried to write regularly, huh? :D

I have a wicked boring novel. Luckily, I have a fluff scene and a comedy scene to power through before I can catch up to where I "should" be.

The only problem is my motivation. Where'd it go?

I'm going through the same sorts of spurts. School stuff is sapping my will to live--or at least my will to write. But it will all be over next week, and I'll have the rest of the month to catch up, if I can write about 3000 words per day!

I couldn't tell you the exact word count per day sadly. It would look kinda cool.

I've got so much I have to do (or at least should be doing). Plus I bought a new electronic piano and have been practicing diligently (3 hours a day is currently the norm).

Gah, back to writing then I will cook something, then more writing.

Yeah...
I can write 2-3,000 in one day but then I'm burned out and need to recoup for a couple of days. I'm woefully behind right now. It doesn't help that I'm trying to do this during the down times at work. PLus I don't have a working computer at home so the weekends are always a bust!

I have a summer class that's demanding all of my free time, but that's starting to wind down and I've had a lot more time to write lately. I just hit 20k, but there's no way I'm writing 30k in a week. My new goal is to write 15k by the end of the month.

I've just been forgetting, which is incredibly stupid. So in the past week and a half I have two 10k+ days and nothing else.

I've had a few really good days, a lot of so-so days, and a few days where I didn't write a single word. But I've been reading through the novel so far, and I think I've got my motivation back where it needs to be... Maybe. :/

My largest word count in a day was about 7,000. Most days it seems like a write a grand total of the big goose egg. When I write at all I really try to fall somewhere in the 2,000-3,000 range. So yeah, I'd say my writing habits are pretty sporadic this time around, especially considering how usually I have a set word goal for each individual day which I'm willing to give up meal times and sleep to achieve.

I've been writing sporadically, as the ideas have been coming sporadically. My best day brought me 3,650...which was a bit of a struggle at times. But I'm just trying to hit a minimum every day to not fall behind anymore.

Dude, mine too. I did 800 words yesterday. I finally broke down and tried to start something new and I couldn't even do *that*.

My muse is back, but I appear to be on some kind of probation. Only so many ideas allowed, and if well executed, more may be allotted for good behavior. O.O My muse is a strict one.

I moved on the 14th, which explains my word count a little bit, but the rest is just laziness, I think.

July 1: 1,667
July 2: 1,667
July 3: 0
July 4: 391
July 5: 1,667
July 6: 1,848
July 7: 1,723
July 8 - July 17: 0
July 18: 4,039
July 19: 3,101
July 20: 1,005
July 21: 2,727
July 22: 4,214
July 23: 1,891
July 24: 3,125
July 25: 3,683
July 26: 3,962
July 27: 130

I need to average about 2,660 per day for the rest of the month, including today.

Update: July 27th ended up being 3,340. So I need to average 2,500 for the next four days. I think I'm going to make it, despite that long string of zeros in the middle--I've just passed the 40,000 mark!

I just had a eureka moment, but I'm letting it stew in my head for a bit until I think it's marinated nicely. Then, hopefully, the words will spew forth from my fingers like lava on a town built too close to a volcano. Hopefully.

Yes, I am writing sporadically. In fact, I was completely unable to write anything, neither with a keyboard nor with a pen, for two weeks, so that when I returned 5 days till the end, I had 35,000 words left to write and there was no way I'd write them all in that short a time without burning myself out again and missing AugNo completely. But I'm building slowly back up to my normal 2000-word pace.

Well, I realized that since I couldn't write more than about 3,000 words/day and then had to rest for a few days that I couldn's possibly write 33,000 words in 2 days.

But I am going to finish it. I had just gotten to the point where I liked my story and my characters.
