January - June Word Counts.  
I haven't really been posting my word counts this year, mostly because they have been so dismal and also because I keep track of that stuff on my desktop and I swear, I barely turn that thing on anymore, especially now that I have my fancy new IPad keyboard. But I have been keeping track, so I figured now is a good time to post the first 6 months of word counts.

Here we go!

January
6,650 words of Dean/Cas fic.

6,650 words written in January!

February
4,200 words of Dean/Cas fic. Completed.
300 words of Chad/Jensen fic.
250 words of Leverage fic. Completed. (already posted!)
250 words of Angel/SPN fic.

5,000 words written in February!

March
1,400 words of Deep Impact fic. Completed. (already posted!)
750 words of Chad/Jensen fic.
1,300 words of Derek/Stiles fic.
700 words of AOS fic.

4,150 words written in March!

April
650 words of Angel/SPN fic.
1,900 words of AOS fic.

2,550 words written in April!

May
750 words of Teen Wolf fic. Completed. (already posted!)
650 words of Derek/Stiles fic.
1,000 words of AOS fic.

2,400 words written in May!

June
2,000 words of Derek/Stiles fic. Completed.
850 words of Angel/SPN fic.

2,850 words written in June!

23,600 words written in the first six months of 2015!

It's only about a quarter of my yearly goal - which is 100k - so not that great, but maybe I can make up for it in the second half of the year, now that I am getting used to juggling my new spoon-level better. That whole 'write everyday, even if it's just 100 words' thing I tried in May didn't really work. Maybe I should try again.

Considering how the non-writing portion of your year has contained certain high levels of challenge in a variety of places, I think it's a pretty amazing word count!

I am so hard on myself about my writing numbers, idk why, but maybe instead of focusing on that, I should try focusing on something like actually posting fic or uploading to AO3 or something that takes less brain power, since this year only seems to be getting worse and I don't think my brain power is coming back anytime soon. I certainly won't be hitting 100k, so I've decided to drop my goal down to 50k. Sounds more reasonable to me! :)

Seems like a reasonable goal to me. And posting stuff is always nice!

And here I sit, had Friday night, all Saturday Sunday Monday to write (still some Monday time left) and I haven't done jack shit. Maybe because the school year's been so frantic so far.

You always get the writing sucked out of you when you first start back to school, babe. You just don't realize it, but we have this same conversation every first quarter! You'll get it back at Fall break, don't worry!

I'm sure you're right. :) It just never gets less annoying, I guess!
