14,182,891!

First, to the people who look at that number and give up a sad little sigh, I say this: The difference is over 800k, meaning that if any one person even doubled their output in December, we would not have made the 15 million. But the amount of people who did race forward this month, and did double their output, has been amazing. We posted 907 graphics this month! We posted 579,863 in written words in DECEMBER! There are only 3 people who did that in graphics all year, and there is NO ONE who did it written words!

To everyone: Put on your party hats because we picked up December by the scruff of it's neck and shook it long and hard until we had everything countable taken from it! It's time to dance, people! So many of us pushed until the last minute, my inbox is heaving, I'm surprised I haven't heard from lj with a Um... no.

In one month, we added almost 1.5 million words to our count this year! WE REIGN SUPREME!!!

Now to the fancy big numbers!

14.1 MILLION WORDS!!!


The way it's gone is:

Image word: 10,304 x 1,000 This is up 907! (increase in November was only 244!)

Written word: 3,878,891 This is up 579,863! (increase in November was only 157,510!)

1_million_words total for the end of 2014: 14,182,891!


Congrats to you all - you are so far beyond amazing! *throws confetti*


When I tell you that every word makes a difference... well, here is the proof. Everything you add, everything you create, makes some other creative mind think I could do something like that or What if I did this and more creative projects are spawned. Because of this we will continue to be amazing and inspiring!

Now, 2015, LOOK OUT!

From a small group of people that last year wanted to pool together their words to make 1 million in one year, this is freaking awesome!

And if you need a visual, that amount of words in 1 year, together, is the small amount as writing the complete Harry Potter series (books 1-7) 13 times! Or we wrote over 18 bibles!

Amazing!

I never gave any numbers, throughout the year... but I did actually consider counting everything up, last night..

Now, I kinda wish I had.

But, hey.. ANY words are enough words, far as I'm concerned. Proud of everyone in this bar!

It's all good, hon!

Counting is just a benchmark, and it's tough to quantify something creative. We're just glad we got you to do more!!!!

WE ARE SO AWESOME!

Oh My God!!! This comm is the Best Thing Ever (TM)!!!!!

How could anyone be disappointed that we didn't reach 15 million? Look how kick-ass we are!!

When this comm started, there was some concern that we couldn't possibly reach the goal of 1 Million Words. Ha! We blew that number away 14 times!!

I know I wrote more this year than I might have otherwise because I was determined to complete as many challenges as possible. This comm is like motivation in a bottle.

kaige68 and haldoor are the most amazing mods in the universe!!!! I want to be them when I grow up!!! Love you guys so much!

I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR!!!

And also, thank you for noticing how amazing we are. *snort*

I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR, TOO!!!!

I wouldn't feel even the teensiest bad - only really, very happy! These are amazing numbers. Almost one and a half million words in a month? Over half a million posted written words in a month? Wow.

And of course, what's even better is that the community is inspiring people to use their talents more often, more effectively, and to try new fandoms and ways of expressing themselves.

If it helps, though, think of all the words that get shaved away in editing - waaaaay more than 15 million words got written by us all this year. Way more.

I live!!!
The past month or so, I haven't been as active on this comm or with writing fic or even personal journal entries as much as I wanted to be. But! I clattered out 256,649 words last year, something to be *very* proud of!

2015 will be better, and this year, we *will* make that 15mil words!
