More words Monday!

So I had a moment during this last week, I hit 25,000 words for the year. It felt like a huge achievement. I'm not a bajillion word a year person. The year that inspired H and I to start the comm I had 50,000. That said, I've had a year where I was over 100,000. ANYWAY, in September I was under 10, so to be over 25 6 week later is... PRETTY DARN AWESOME!

Now tell me, dear peeps, how awesome have you been? And what are your plans to out do yourself?

That is an amazing amount of words! I know there are years when I wrote ZERO, so 25k is WONDERFUL!

From 11/1-11/6, I had a great week. Saturday and Sunday went to hell in a handbasket, word-wise, but I've got 1k words in today, so maybe I'm back on track? I don't think I can outdo last week as I'm already too far behind, but I'm going to finish Haldoor's story before this week is over!!!

Oh, and work on my Swap of Joy. Yikes. :D

managed to close the gap so I'm only 1 day behind instead of 3...

on the plus side I'd say 90% of my Christmas stuff is done...beyond mailing and decorating and wrapping the few items that have not yet arrived..
does that count as progress? lmao.

I'm kinda doing terribly atm, word-wise. Granted, I've been worrying about the evil recurring theme of finances, but I can't even sit down and sort my notes or something similar. *sigh*

When there is a big issue on your mind, like finances, it's so hard to be creative. *hugs*

THAT IS WONDERFUL!

I am having my worst words year and am sitting somewhere in the 40K range. Honestly, the year we set this up I did 100K MORE THAN THAT! Life just seems to get busier, and then I must admit, the urge to write has dwindled some. I blame it on menopause.

BUT, having reassessed what I think I'm possibly able to create by the end of 2015 (when it hit needing 1000 words per day it seemed completely unachievable to hit 100K), so I still reckon I can get over 50K anyway! AND THAT WILL BE FABULOUS!

For this week, I really just want to get through it with Friday's procedure constantly in mind, but I am hoping that as I will be home Thurs/Fri, I will at the very least get those songfic banners done, which will add about 5000 graphic words! (on the plus side, this is my best graphics year ever!)

YAY US!

Our first year I was over 125, and that feels a bit like a fail that this year I'm 20% of that. But then, that year I don't think either of us did anything except this. It was all "WORD WORD WORD - Get the comm off the ground - WORD WORD WORD". I think we're balancing out.

50K you can totally do. Just give my my 331 a day! And some banners!

*hugs*

Thanks to the Word Wars this weekend, I jammed out substantial portions of four separate fics. That was very rewarding - but there's still a lot to be done to hone and finish them and post.

I also have some research to to this weekend - partly for the SOJ, and partly for a fic prompt/request I received a YEAR AGO (how is that possible) that I really do want to write soon.

If I am super, super awesome this month I could potentially clear the deck of those, and of everything on my stove except for one very long form McDanno fic that will be a major feature of 2016, fate willing.

That's my plan. Clear the decks- leave December open to play with words very randomly, and to think about the year ahead.

I'm sitting with almost 2k words with twenty-one days left to reach my goal of 10k.

The word wars last weekend really helped.

Word wars kicked butt this weekend! You kicked butt this weekend!

2k is awesome, and there's still plenty of time to get to 10! You have this in the bag!
