How do I save a value in an inputText field?


I am attempting to use inputText on a VF page and can't figure out how to save the value to the record.  Does anyone have an example of this that I could bootstrap off of? 

I am using a custom object & controller. 

Here is the string from the VF page: 

apex:inputText value="{!spotObj.Workload__c}"/> <apex:commandButton value="Save" action="{!saveSpot}"/>
And here is my controller: 
public with sharing class SpotsInProcess{

    public List <Job_Number__c> listOfInProgress {get;set;}
    public Job_Number__c InProgress  {get;set;}

public PageReference saveSpot(){
    UPDATE listOfInProgress;
    return null;

public SpotsInProcess(){
    listOfInProgress = [Select id, name, Workload__c, Notes__c, Thumbnail_URL__c, ISCI__c, Title__c,   First_Air_Date__c,  Last_Air_Date__c, Project__c, Campaign__r.Name, Nets_Running__c, View_Link__c, Internal_Title__c, Legal__c, Airing_Agencies__c from Job_Number__c where Job_Status__c = 'In Progress']; 

It would mean the world to me if someone could help me out!

Thanks in advance!
