I did it

So, as you might recall, I signed up for the monthly challenge at 750words. That is to write 750 words at least each day of the month.

Well I did it. Not only did I do it but I kicked its ass into next Tuesday. I wrote over 1000 words every day at the site and all of it was on one story (I also did some writing not at the site this month on top of the 1000+ words each day).

The grand total came to…

by the numbers

I was curious to see how much I’ve written this year. Just curious because in all my years of wanting to write I’ve done very little until this year. Coming upon the Stargate fandom has really gotten me going. It really started last November with NaNo and my epic, and yet unfinished, SG-1 novel.

Anyway, I opened up my database of stories and added up all the totals. Then I went back and figured out the words I have written for all my unfinished fics that are saved to the computer. That was for both fanfic and my original stories.

In 2011 I have so far written 146,673 words and it’s only the end of August. There are still four more months left including NaNo in November which will most likely add an additional 50k words to my total. WOW! And that number does not include several stories I have written in notebooks but have yet to type up. There’s probably another 10k that’s handwritten.

Since Last October (the first story I have listed since NaNo 2009) I have written a grand total of 226,029 words (not including those not typed up). I’m just amazed at this number. In contrast in 2008 I basically wrote my NaNo story and a few drabbles. So around 52k or so. In 2009 I only wrote my NaNo story.

almost 6000 words

And counting.

On my [info]sg1friendathon  that is.

I didn’t intend for it to be this long but I go where my muse takes me.  And I might actually finish it by tonight if the darn kids will leave me alone.  Most likely, though, I’m going to have to go hide in my room with it.  My husband will be home soon and he takes over the TV (which is a few feet form my computer).  Leverage and Falling Skies are on tonight and he’ll want to watch but I need to get this done.

Nothing like waiting until the very last minute.

Didn’t I tell myself I wouldn’t do this any more?

Anyway, I’m going to post whatever I have by midnight and submit it to the comm.  Then, if there’s any finishing left to do I’ll get to it in the morning and send it to a beta.  It’s going to sit in the queue for a couple of weeks at least anyway.  Sounds like a plan.
