Okay, on behalf of my renewed resolution of putting my butt in the not-so-comfy chair and write every day, here's the result after the second week of that regimen (for my current WIP)

This week's writing log:

Daily progress log
DayWritten that dayTotal words

I have an excuse for Friday's crappy "90": I had a sinus infection, and my head was about to explode. I'm happy that I still managed to write *something*.
It is interesting to write, no matter whether I'm inspired or not. To my surprise, I've managed to write scenes that, although the prose is crap, advance the plot. I tend to skip on descriptions and the characters' inner thoughts, but it's still better than I expected. I can always fix the prose on round #2. My aim is to finish the first draft, no matter how crap it is.

Oh, I wish I was disciplined (or well) enough to do a daily writing list. My writing looks more like this 'this week I wrote 11000 words, last week I did nothing, oh, I did do some art? Oooo, pretty colours.' And so on. This week I don't know if I'm going to do anything at all because I've burnt myself out (11,000 words and art in the same week, silly).

And I think aiming to finish the first draft is a good one, you can always slicken up exposition or plot advancement later, but there's nothing quite like doing it from the position of having a finished first draft, I think. :)

11,000. Words.

To be fair, it's the most I've done in a concentrated amount pretty much ever, I think (except my first Nanowrimo). I have a friend who can do something like 2000+ words a day, which is just incredible to me.

Realistically, my weekly output is more like 500 words a week, averaged out in fits and starts. That's why I don't really record it, because sometimes it's like... 'this week I did, oh, nothing? Okay.' Heh.

And you seem to be doing really good with discipline! I mean writing through a sinus infection is hardcore!

Ha! I would too! It's the only kind of housework I'm any good at! :D (and I wash our dishes to avoid writing.)
