It’s update time!!!
According to WordKeeperAlpha, where I log my words, I made the 250.000 words I set out to do on August 7th. I don’t know if that’s true since I don’t log my words every day, I do them in batches, but it could be 😊
This last month, I wrote 26.998 words, so not bad but not awesome either. My personal life is in upheaval, so I’m quite pleased with those 27k, though. Had I known, that I only needed to write two more words to make 27k, I would have, but as I said, I log the words in batches, so I didn’t know I was that close.
I’ve written 269.306 words total during 2022, and this morning, I signed the contract for Holly’s 12th story of the year, so yay! That’s two goals reached in the same month 🥳
My daily word count is 1090, which I’m also quite pleased with since I have days when I don’t add words at all. I haven’t written a word for close to a week now, only done some edits, so that’s pretty great.
When my brain starts working again – if it ever will – I’ll reevaluate my plan. The original one was to write some short stories for Ofelia, but the harsh reality is that Ofelia hardly sells anything, so my time might be better invested if I start on Holly’s 2023 instead. Ofelia has a story coming out in December, and while it’s a long wait… I guess this is one of the downsides of having two names. But, I’ll sit down and make a plan when I have some brainpower.
