Words Written In 2015!  
So, here are my totals for last year. My goal was initially to do 500 words a day. Then I cut it down to 1,000 words a week. Most months I didn’t make that goal, especially in the last six months of the year when word count production was cut in thirds due to stress and like no free time for myself. Also, I am just ridiculously amused that my highest fandom total was for SPN. Like, I don’t even go there anymore! It’s Dean/Cas, they won’t let me go! And, yes, 8 ½ fics completed totally makes sense because I wrote a chapter of a book that I hope to continue on writing this year and actually finishing. It was an idea that my grandma put to me and I laughed it off and she called me out and demanded I write it. So I wrote her a chapter for her Christmas present. Which I count as the ½. I finished the chapter in time for Christmas, but I have not finished the book. Thus, the ½. Hopefully, I’ll keep at that one.

So, here are some numbers:

Wow! I'm impressed!

Thank you!!

It was a lower word count than the past few years, but I keep telling myself it's a miracle I had the brain power to write at all this year, considering everything going on with my mom, so I'm proud of this!

Speaking of your mom, how is she doing? Better, I hope.
dodger_sister: comfortdodger_sister on January 9th, 2016 12:18 am (UTC)
Thank you for asking about my mom. I keep meaning to make a post, but I just don't know what to say.

She's in the hospital again. Pretty bad pneumonia and possible sepsis infection. It's pretty bad. Canadian brother drove here today to see her, just in case. I saw her yesterday and she looked bad. So, thank you for your kind thoughts and I am still hoping I will have better news next time we talk, but right now, we are unfortunately preparing for the worst.
Jo Ann: Fingers crossed for luckyeuxdebleu on January 9th, 2016 12:28 am (UTC)
Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear this. Getting pneumonia while hospitalized happens rather often I think. I agree it doesn't sound good, but the will to live can be very strong and she may yet surprise everyone. I will keep my fingers crossed for her...and you.

Pretty great work, considering how painfully busy the second half of the year was for you.
dodger_sister: writingdodger_sister on January 9th, 2016 12:13 am (UTC)
Yeah, I was disappointed the second half of the year was only a third of what I wrote in the first half of the year. After my first 6 months came out decent, I decided to strive for 50k, but I had no idea how my life was about to blow up, so I'll take 32k!

That's still a pretty respectable word count for the year bb.
dodger_sister: writingdodger_sister on January 9th, 2016 12:15 am (UTC)
Thanks, babe! This year's word count was considerably lower than my past years but all of my brain power this year was taken up by mom-stuff and I just keep telling myself that that's okay and that 32k is good. Because it is! With everything going on at home, any words are good words!

Amazing! So productive. And I love that you feel comfortable writing in so many fandoms.

This fall I pretty much gave up on working on art because work took up too much of my time. This semester might be as bad AND I am promising myself to read more published fiction so I will be spending less time on other stuff. But I did sign up as an artist for spn_j2_bigbang, so I will be working on at least one thing this spring.

Sometimes I just want my muses to focus on one thing though!! But mostly the fact that I can jump from one fandom to another so easily shows like so much about my personality. I am a true Gemini, I hear.

I'm glad you signed up for the BB though, because it's when your Rl is so hectic and crazed that you need that outlet even more. It's important to make time for that stuff, for the fun stuff that you want to do!
