After having an awesome day four of Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo), my writing took a slump for the next two days. I only got 49 words written on day five and 224 words on day six. Neither of these days are near my goal of writing 500 words per day on weekdays. On both of these days I was working on an upcoming conference paper. I find writing conference papers challenging (almost as much as funding applications) because it feels every sentence is just a summary of the paragraph it wants to be. I much prefer long form writing.
I still have a few hours to work so I am looking forward to reporting a better day tomorrow. Until then, keep writing.
I had a great working day yesterday, blowing my daily goal out of the water. I wrote 6292 words yesterday. That is an incredible number for me because a good day is usually around 500 words.
I completed the job application I started yesterday (2 more to go to complete the goal), I started a new as yet titled project, and wrote another 125 words for my upcoming conference presentation.
I hope today is higher than my usual.
The start of this year’s Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo) is so far the best one yet for me. I am feeling very focused and I am writing more words per day than I usually do (except when I am specifically binge writing). Today has been no exception, however I will reveal what I did today in tomorrow’s report. Here is how and what I did on day two and three:
I was working on my conference paper that I will be presenting on November 14. I finished off the first section and started the second.
Word count: 586 words
I wrote and completed a cover letter for a job application.
Word count: 1285 words
AcWriMo word total : 2374
I stated Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo) well. I reached my daily goal of writing 300 words per day on weekends by writing 350 words. I also completed an abstract for a special issue of the journal Wi: A Journal of Mobile Media on Mobile Trash, which was not on the goal list.
I got the abstract done in two hours, which for me is fast. I usually do not write that fast. Maybe this is a sign of this to come for this month.
So far so good. I hope to keep this productivity up.
