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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

apr2017wordchart

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.
