Count for July

August was a super productive month for me...made it through the final edit of one book...about 1/3 of the way through a first edit of another book...and 5 chapters in a wip fanfic. I'd hoped to get that done, but the editing has been going so well, I decided to stay with it.

Plus it was NaNoCamp...so that was another reason to push.

By tallying the edits (using a 1/3 word count to the number of words I actually read) plus everything I've written on the fan fic, plus the rewrite/retype which is my first edit for the other book, I've got a count of 180786 words. Rather abnormal for me...but I'll take it.
1MW-august rush

August Rush starts tomorrow! Also - reminder: get your counts in!

Hey everyone! It's the end of July and we need those words and graphics! Please update your counts by the end of today, the 31st, wherever you are! Come this time tomorrow, I'll be checking and updating our total count!

Did you get your Pool Party creation finished? No? Well, you have less than 24 hours to get it done and your count in! GO, DO! (and I kick myself on that, too, as my pool party is not finished either, but I'm thinking I could post half and then it will be a good incentive to get the second half in before people jump a plane to come find me for the rest!)

And AUGUST RUSH starts tomorrow! Here are Collapse )

Now I'm off to post part one of my unbeta'd Pool Party fic! Good luck everyone!
