Writing 365 Tracking - Behind the scenes, Part 2
To help with my project of writing 1,000 words per day in 2016, I use a Microsoft workbook to track progress. In this post you will see how I created the various measurements.

Writing 365

In the book 11.22.63, by author Stephen King, the protagonist was introduced to a time portal by a cafe owner who discovered the portal. The cafe owner asked the lead character, Jake, to travel back to 1960 - the time portal only went to this one specific date - and hang out for up to three years to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. One of the phenomenon Jake experienced was push back from the universe whenever he tried to alter significant events.

This week sort of felt like that to me. I feel tremendous forces at work trying to prevent my writing at least 1,000 words per day. A couple of times during the week I wondered, Do I really need to do this? Can I make it through? However, I pushed myself to write, and successfully met my daily goals.

Bible Project

In order to track my progress in writing out the entire Bible by hand, I added a new bar line on the chart to display progress from the previous chart. Thus, I can easily see I only completed two chapters for this week under review. This serves as gentle reminder for me to pick up the pace. I'd like to complete at least three to four chapters every week.
