Words Written In 2016!

So, here it is, the 31st of January, 2018. How did that happen? When I was a kid, I couldn’t even imagine 2018. It seemed like a lifetime away. But anyway, that’s not my point. My point is, it is 2018 and I have not posted any final word counts for 2016 or 2017. Damn. I usually do a full roundup with bonus trivia, but I’m gonna keep it simple here. So here is 2016...

It looks like my highest month was January. And my lowest month was December. I wrote more fanfiction than I wrote on my books (oops). For the first time since I’ve been journaling - 2010 - Supernatural was my lowest fandom word count. My highest was The Monster Squad, lol, all one story. Though to be fair, there was a subtle John Winchester cameo in that fic. I wrote in 13 different fandoms. I wrote the most on Book 1 than I did any other thing, if you count the fandoms individually, sure let’s do that. And now for the big end result…

52,950 words written in 2016!

Not the 100k I had been going for that year, but considering how the year went in 2016 (and in 2017, tbh) not too shabby.

Words Written In 2017!

Here is 2017’s word counts. I’ll straight up say it - I miss writing fanfic. I had a lot of fun working on my book, but I miss fanfic, dammit. I did manage to finish my book this year, Book 1! I’m so relieved and excited to have finished it. As you may notice below, there are some months with no word counts or very little word counts. A lot of that was editing. And, of course, September & October were grieving and my mom gives me a hard pass on those months. So here is 2017...

Well, would you look at that - I passed 10k twice. My highest month was May - I passed 16k in May! My lowest month(s) were June, September & October. (My excuse for June was that The Canadians were here for 2 weeks and The Nephew was here for almost 3 weeks! I was beat, yo.) I only wrote 5,900 words of fanfic, how sad. But look at that word count for my original stuff - over 43k on Book 1! Now it’s time to get back to the superhero book I am writing with The Nephew. And now for the big end result…

50,950 words written in 2017!

My goal for 2017 was to hit 50k and I scraped by and did it!
