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!

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.

Monthly Round-Up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

I actually finished two books in August. It was the second time I made it through Story Engineering, and I started Hooked on December 31 in my push to complete my Goodreads 2016 Challenge. I missed it by like 40 pages. So I reread the book.

Reviews:

None posted. Bad ne.

Writing:

Well, I wrote. Considering the lingering depression, that’s a success. The total for the month: 11,439

Streak: 243 days. Still haven’t missed since January 1!

Editing/Finishing:

Yeah, I did none. I didn’t even attempt it.

Posting:

Nothing. *sad face*

It was a pretty crappy month.

Monthly Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Yeah, well… I didn’t finish any books this month. I barely read anything.

Reviews:

None posted. 😦

Writing:

It was a slow month despite being Camp NaNo. I only managed to get 14,957 words. The goal was 21k. But I’m already finished with my GYWO goal. The total for the year is at 269,108.

Streak: 212 days. Haven’t missed since January 1.

Editing/Finishing:

This was a bit of a success this month–at least the first week. I managed to completely edit five stories and work on another. I also added to several of the stories from Camp NaNo April addition.

Montly Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Three books finished. Wow! That’s just so… underwhelming. I’m now 8 books behind schedule. Technically, Shadows was included in Opposition, but I’m treating them as two books because I can. I even managed to write reviews for each of them, but neglected to edit and post them. Time to get busy on that.

Reviews:

None posted. 😦

Writing:

I hit my GYWO (Get Your Words Out) goal! My total for the year is 254,151. My month was a little slow, though. Only 26,526 words. I had a couple productive days, but the last week and a half I averaged under 100 words. I was too busy crocheting and binge-watching Being Human.

Streak: 181 days. Haven’t missed since January 1.

Editing/Finishing:

Another failure. I edited two projects, but only one of those was posted.

Posting:

When I’m Gone (Stargate SG-1)

May Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

One book finished. YAY! I’m only 7 books behind schedule now.

Writing:

Just about 20k words this month–story-wise. I ended up adding the word counts for all of my blog posts I’ve made, so it raised my total for the month to 21,320 and 227,625 for the year. I have a 151 day writing streak this year!

Editing/Finishing:

Nothing to report here. I’ve added words to several of the stories I started in April, but none are finished. And I only tried to edit one but got nowhere with it. Sigh.

April Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Didn’t get any books read this month. Camp NaNoWriMo kind of ate my brain. I did get a little bit of reading done. Just not enough.

Writing:

This is where it all happened in April. 77,854 words for the month bringing the total for the year to 182,714 words. And a 120 day streak!

Editing/Finishing:

I don’t even know where to start. Thirty stories were started in April. Six are considered finished but unedited at the moment.

Handle with Care (The 100(TV))

March Round-up

All things reading and writing.

Reading:

Just two books finished in March. I might have finished a third, but life came up. A death in the family, cat went into labor, craziness ensued.

Writing:

44,950 words written in March. 90 day streak!

mar2017wordchart

Editing/Finishing:

I got through quite a bit of finishing/revising/rewriting one of my novella-length fanfics. It’s not ready to post yet, though. I also finished rough drafts of at least eight one-shot fanfics. Two were further edited into finished products. There were a whole lot of unfinished stories thanks to starting a prompt-a-day journal. Kind of counterproductive when my plan was to empty my WIP folder.

Always & Forever (The 100 (TV))

February Round-up

Here is a round up of all things reading and writing.

Reading:

Apparently I read nothing in February. Not sure how that happened. I know I tried to finish two books before they had to go back to the library, but became violently ill, so never got around to it.

Writing:

35,900 words for February. Streak now at 59 days!

feb2017wordchartAdded sentences every day to my #writeastory project. It still makes no sense, but whatever.

Editing/Finishing:

Finished and edited two The 100 fanfics that had been sitting around since last summer. But the biggest news is I decided to tackle one of my longer fics. I wrote the last few chapters while revising the beginning. It’s really coming along at around 36k words

January Round-up

Here is a round up of all things reading and writing.

Reading:

Ten books finished in January.

Writing:

24,000 words for January. 31 day streak!

jan2017wordchartNot too bad. I managed to add a few sentences to my #writeastory project every day. The story makes absolutely no sense, but it worked as a daily warm-up before writing something else.

Editing/Finishing:

I decided I needed to really focus on clearing out my WIP folders. With that in mind, I’ve made an effort to edit some of my older stories that have been sitting around forever. I managed to finish/edit/revise two fanfics. I also edited a short story in my Jumper series that is only posted on my LiveJournal for now.
