Word Count Stats
*Note: These numbers do not include yesterday or today's word count 

My Total Word Goal: 30,000
Total Words Written:  24,099
Words Written This Week: 10,561
Words Left: 5,901

Writing Samples:

First Sentence I wrote: I started going over in my head the question that had been nagging at me.

Last Sentence I wrote: I knew I needed to go see Sam and make sure he was alright.

Favorite Line/Sentence: Time moved so fast that the world was a blur, a mixture of colors, and sounds all jumbled together.

Writerly Feelings:

I'm Feeling:  like I'm not sure if I want to go in this direction for my ending anymore. I've written out a bunch of different ideas for how the ending could go and I'll probably try them all out eventually. For now I'm going to continue writing to the outline I prepared. 

I Learned: That writing sad scenes are hard, especially when you really love your characters. I've decided that I want to try writing a lighter and more fun story after this one.

My Best Writing Session: Day 8 because I was really invested in this scene. It was a sad scene to write but it was in my head all day and I kept being drawn back to my computer through out the day to write. No forcing myself to sit down and write on this day!

Trials and Triumphs: There was a lot that was distracting me this week from my writing, but I still sat down and forced myself to make time for my writing. Not all writing sessions were perfect or easy, but I love my characters and I enjoy immersing myself in their world. These characters have been with me since high school and I love writing about them.

Things to Keep in Mind Next Week: I should be able to finish my draft next week and definitely reach my goal of 30,000. So I just need to keep making time for writing. 

Well that's it for now! I hope you enjoyed reading about my progress. Be sure to check back next Sunday for another update!
