OVER TWELVE AND A HALF MILLION WORDS!

I AM SO INSANELY PROUD!


Okay, no, we didn't make last year's numbers, but we did pretty damn stunning. Go through the list of numbers that people posted of their counts and look at what your friends have done. We all get down on ourselves, think we aren't doing what we think we 'should'. But those numbers, man! Those numbers say that we are pretty freaking amazing. A group of friends, encouraging each other to go for it at their hobbies got together over twelve and a half million bits of creation! BEAT THAT WITH A STICK! I'm crying now from the swell of the awesome.

Here are the numbers:

Image word: 8,925 x 1,000. This is up 513 from last month! GO US!

Written word: 3,719,731. Up an insane 698,984 from last month! SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND!

That means the increase for the month was ONE POINT TWO MILLION!!!!! And you think you were slacking!
