June Round-Up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Does fanfic count?

 

Writing:

I fell way behind with this. Well, not “way” behind but behind where I wanted to be. I’ve just been feeling like crap with my moods all over the place and always tired (starting to think there might actually be something wrong with me). I didn’t write creative words every day, but it wasn’t a complete failure because I still managed to journal. Totaled 11,793 for the month, bringing the YTD total to 170,370.

Streak: My streak is now at 564 days (since January 1, 2017)!

Editing/Finishing:

I managed three (and a half) chapters of Heaven Can’t Wait which means I’m behind again. Oh, well. I also finished up one of the April 2017 Camp stories and two for Red vs Blue that I wrote this month. I worked on editing a few others, but nothing got completely finished.

Posting:

Two stories and three chapters of Heaven

Heaven Can’t Wait:

Won’t Say I Told You So (But I Totally Did) (The 100)
Nightlight (Red vs Blue)
Gross Family (Red vs Blue)

May Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Still nothing… I’m so awful. I haven’t read a book since January. BUT I’ve been reading a lot of fanfic. That counts for something, right?

Reviews:

Zip.

Writing:

I didn’t make the monthly goal. Missed it by about 1,600 words, but I’m okay with that. I’m still over 13k words ahead for the year. I’ve been super tired with nearly constant headaches that have squashed my creativity. I skipped writing for three days then only did editing (under 100 words) for three others at the end of the month. I ended up with 28,094 words for the month which brings the yearly total to 158,451 words.

Streak: My streak is now at 516 days (since January 1, 2017)!

Editing/Finishing:

I did really good here. I finished revising three chapters Heaven Can’t Wait and started editing a fourth. I finished a few random Red vs Blue fics and edited one of those. Revised two of the 2017 April Camp NaNo stories. AND I went back and found two old SG-1 fics from 2014 I finished by never revised so I got those out there. Despite slacking on the Heaven chapters, I got quite a bit done this month.

Posting:

Seven stories and six chapters posted in May.

Heaven Can’t Wait:

Shut Up and Dance (Red vs Blue)
Burnt Toast (Red vs Blue)
Weather the Storm With You (The 100)
Running Out of Reasons to Pretend (The 100)
Take This Job and Shove It (Stargate SG-1)
Just to See You Smile (Stargate SG-1)
Midnight in the Garden of Our Past Lives (Red vs Blue)

[I’m really quite proud of the titles for May’s stories, lol.]

April Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Yeah… I got nothing.

Reviews:

Zip.

Writing:

YAY for the Untu Hunt at 4thewords.com. I managed to write 91,023 words this month! Like Wow! I went from being 47k behind schedule to 15k ahead. Go me!

2018_apr_wordchart

And look at those huge lines. I had three days over 12k.

Streak: My streak is now at 485 days (since January 1, 2017).

Editing/Finishing:

I’m so proud of myself here. I finished and edited chapters 12 – 22 for Heaven Can’t Wait. They are all ready to go. I also finished a couple Red vs Blue fics but haven’t edited them.

March Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

I read a grand total of zero books in March. It’s been a bad month.

Reviews:

Also zero.

Writing:

I didn’t write every day and fell below my goal. Pathetically below. But I did do some writing, so it’s something. The grand total for the month was 7,769, bringing the total for the year up to 39,289. Like I said… pathetic.

2018_mar_wordchart

Streak: I did keep up my journal which has turned into mostly ranting about my mood. That keeps my streak which is now at 455 days (since January 1, 2017).

Editing/Finishing:

I’ve done pretty much nothing. I did write a couple The 100 stories but haven’t started editing them. Other than that, I haven’t really worked on anything.

Posting:

Does reposting an old SG-1 fic count?

Didn’t think so.

February Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Well, it was better than January. That’s all I can say about that.

 

Reviews:

Yeah, didn’t do any of these and am backlogged to December. Ugh.

Writing:

 

I fell so far below my goal, it’s pathetic. The month ended with 10,315 words with 14 days I didn’t write at all. That’s half the month! The stress of my cat nearly dying and getting a dog has had a serious toll on my mental state and creativity. All I can do is hope March is better.

2018_feb_wordchart.jpeg

Streak: Despite not having any story words, I did manage to write in my journal every day. At least 444 words which keeps my streak up at 4thewords.com. That’s 425 days (since January 1, 2017).

Editing/Finishing:

The Great Animal Conspiracy strikes again. Between all of the drama of the cat and dog, I didn’t do much anything. I did manage to polish up chapter eleven of Heaven Can’t Wait, but it all stalled there. In the last three days, I finally wrote rough drafts of chapters 12-15. So that’s a step in the right direction.

Posting:

Heaven Can’t Wait

I still can’t believe chapter eleven is the only thing I posted all month. Sad.

January Round-Up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Um… Well… Yeah. I got through one book. Happens every January–I burn myself out catching up in December.

theheartbreakers

Reviews:

I managed to finish and post a bunch of backdated reviews from December.

Writing:

January wasn’t that great, but I did manage to write every day, keeping my streak going. I fell short of my goal by over 8,000 words, though. Still a good start to the year all around.   Total: 21,205

2018_jan_wordchart

Streak: 396 days! (since January 1, 2017)

Editing/Finishing:

This is kind of all over the place. I finished and/or edited a bunch of chapters for Heaven Can’t Wait. I finished an old March prompt (one of my goals). Rewrote and started editing “try” from April Camp last year. Also finished but didn’t start editing at least two short fics.

Monthly Round-Up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

W00t! Well, I made my Goodreads challenge goal which means I read 21 books in December! Some of them were pretty short. Apparently, 250 pages is becoming a typical YA romance. But they’re cheap…

 

Reviews:

I wrote and posted a couple reviews for books I read in November if that counts (and I’m counting it).

Writing:

December was a pretty good month for writing. It was up and down with numbers because of having to finish so many books, but a good month overall.   Total: 24,452

dec2017wordchart

Total for the year: 425,810!

Streak: 356 days!!!!! I made it the entire year without missing a day. Now onto 730 days!

Editing/Finishing:

I kind of fell off here. I managed to finish and edit several chapters for Heaven Can’t Wait, but not enough of them. I got too stressed with the holidays and reading. But I did do some at the beginning of the month.

Posting:

Heaven Can’t Wait – chapter 2

Monthy Round-Up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Officially, four books read this month. I didn’t quite get the last one finished on the 30th, but it was close. considering I was also doing, NaNo, that’s pretty impressive. Now I only need 18 more books before the end of the year. Um…

Reviews:

I actually wrote a review for On the Fence but still need to edit and post it.

Writing:

Well, it was NaNoWriMo so there were a lot of words written this month. I ended up focusing mostly on one story instead of trying to finish up a bunch of the April Camp endeavors. But it was a lot of words on one story so…   Total: 58,934

Streak: 334 days. Still haven’t missed since January 1!

november2017wordchart.jpeg

Editing/Finishing:

Well, I tried to do as many as possible but ran into an unforeseen situation when my meds were changed. I was barely able to stay awake most of the month. Focusing on anything was difficult. And editing takes focus. I did manage to finish (and edit in some way) four stories and two chapters of another.

Monthly Round-Up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Well, things didn’t go as well as last month. Only three books finished. Either I thought I read a whole lot more or the month just flew by. Probably both. I’m now like 14 books behind schedule with only two months left. And I’m busy with NaNo in November.

Reviews:

None of these because I’m lazy.

Writing:

This month was pretty good. I made the monthly quota and added quite a few words to my April Camp story, redo. Most of it I’ll be cutting when I edit, but whatever. I had a lot of fun writing it. Total: 29,173

Streak: 304 days. Still haven’t missed since January 1!

oct2017wordchart

Editing/Finishing:

YAY! I actually did some of this. I finished and edited a story I wrote in March. Then I edited another March story, although I put it aside to prepare for NaNo.

End of the Line (The 100)

Monthly Round-Up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

September was a much more successful month in the reading department. Sure, most of the books were re-reads, but it’s reading!

 

 

Reviews:

Yeah… lots of books read, not so many reviews. As is none were reviewed.

Writing:

Most of the month was pretty much like the last few–just the minimum needed each day, but there several days where I broke 1,000 words which felt nice. The 19th, though, I wrote over 13k words. That was about 1/3 of my monthly total. I could use more days like that. Total: 31,704

Streak: 273 days. Still haven’t missed since January 1!

september2017wordchart

Editing/Finishing:

Well, most of what I wrote was for a personal project I don’t intend to publish. Okay, all of it was for the project except like three days. I did add to 100_survive from Day 1 of April Camp NaNo–it’s nowhere near finished, but I’m putting it here because it got closer to being finished.

Posting:

Sigh…

The month was better than last, but still crap.
