Ficage In 2013!

I kept meaning to get this all written up, just some numbers on my word counts for 2013. I actually kept track throughout the year because the previous year, when I added it all up, I realized I was just 750 words short from hitting 100k and there was no way I was going to let that happen again. Especially this time when I added it up at the 6-month mark and realized I had 50k exactly, I had to go for the big goal and get it done.

Fandoms Written In For 2013 - 15; Avengers, Buffy&Angel, Chicago Fire, Criminal Minds, CW RPS, The Hunger Games, Kitties!, Leverage, Lost Girl, Middle-Earth, Once Upon A Time, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Without A Trace & The X-Files.

New Fandoms Written In For 2013 - 6; Chicago Fire, Criminal Minds, Kitties!, The Hobbit, Lost Girl, and Once Upon A Time.

The Fandoms I Wrote The Most In For 2013 -
Buffy&Angel: 9,250 words.
CW RPS: 13,200 words.
Teen Wolf: 40,600 words.

Lowest Monthly Word Count - 4,000 words in November.
Highest Monthly Word Count - 14,000 words in July.


Interesting Facts:
*Last year I wrote in 17 fandoms. This year I wrote in 15. (Unless you separate Buffy & Angel and The Hobbit & The Lord Of The Rings, in which case, I guess I wrote in 17 this year).
*Last year I tried out 5 new fandoms. This year I tried out 6. (Which surprises me, because I felt like I had barely tried any new fandoms at all this year. Also, I was shocked to realize this was the year I started writing Chicago Fire fic. That feels like so long ago).
*Of the 8,350 words of Supernatural fic I wrote this year, ALL of them were for Dean/Cas stories.
*I wrote 8,900 words of Fic-For-Kids this year. And 1,250 words of Fic-For-Kitties.
*The fandom I wrote the least in was the Kitties! fandom, with the story I wrote about my sister’s cats, which was 1,200 words long. After that, the Once Upon A Time/Avengers fic clocked OUAT in at 1,300 and Lost Girl came out at 1,400.
*If you separate my Hobbit fic from my Lord of the Rings fic, then the fandom I wrote the least in is actually The Lord of the Rings, with 250 words. (it was Legolas crack-fic).
*I wrote 13,200 words of CW RPS fic this year, but it was actually only 4 different stories, 3 of which were PWPs. It seems I can’t keep a porn fic under 5k anymore.
*20,981 words of my writing this year was on my epic Derek/Stiles AU fic that still isn’t finished yet.
*The difference between my highest fandom word count (Teen Wolf) and my second highest fandom word count (CW RPS) is 27,400 words.
*I started the year with 26 unfinished WIPs sitting in my writing folder. I checked off at least 6 of those over the course of the year, maybe more. Yet, somehow, I still ended the year with exactly 26 WIPS in my writing folder again. Oops. I seem to have started, and left unfinished, as many new WIPS as I had the year before.
*I also posted 26 fics in 2013, one of which was my epic SYFY channel movie fic starring Neil deGrasse Tyson.
*My average word count, dividing out by 12, was just over 8k a month.
*I had four months (June - September) where I actually broke 10k.
*When I did my writing summary for 2012, I ended it with - On to 2013, where I’m betting Teen Wolf wins everything. That’s right, I said Teen Wolf! - Little did I know how true that would be or that I would write over 40k in Teen Wolf fic in 2013.

Total Yearly Word Count - 101,200 words written in 2013!!

My goals for 2014 are to finish all of the WIPS in my writing folder. I’m on a mission! I have already finished one this year. Most importantly is to get that freaking Derek/Stiles fic finished! I’m thinking Teen Wolf will probably be the front-runner of word counts again, just in finishing that one fic. But I wonder what new fandoms will strike my fancy during 2014. Anyways, that’s 2013...onto the next!
