Weekly writing progress report for 2010 week #1

Here’s the status of the progress I’ve made toward my writing goals for 2010 for week #1:

  Week YTD
Total words written 3,199 3,199
# stories completed 0 0
# stories submitted 0 0
# stories sold 0 0

Summary: Not a very auspicious beginning to what is an aggressive set of goals for the year, but at least I managed to get some writing done in the first full week of 2010.  I wrote on 4 days this past week, all in the evening, which is different from what I’d done during NaNoWriMo back in November.  I’d really like to get back to the early morning writing, but it’s been hard to get myself up at 5 am.  I’ve also written less each session.  During NaNoWriMo, I was writing about 2,200 words per day.  This week I managed to average 800 words per day, with my best day reaching just over 1,000 words.  I’m hoping this too improves with time.  I plan on finishing the first story of the year this week, going through the second draft, sending it out for some comments, and hopefully getting it into the mail not later than Wednesday of next week.
