    I've added around 1,250 words (I say around because I was editing something I'd worked on before February and added around 100 words, but I'm not exactly sure how many) for a current total of 3,449.


    It doesn't seem like much for 21 days of a month, but I'm happy! And some of this total has even been Star Wars and not The West Wing related! :D

    That also means your English is getting better!

    - person with only the most basic understanding of French who tried to read that chapter in original and couldn't

    The participant list has been updated. I probably won't update it again till the final counts. Life kinda got messy for me (the past 2 days have honestly felt like a week). Things are looking better but I'll probably still have to limit my time around here.

    Now at 4556, after typing 515 on my official Celtic Challenge story (as opposed to the unofficial one, currently in beta). Maybe I'll be able to beat 5000 this month after all!

    After an emotional day, I let my mind just sink into the therapeutic-ness of fanfic and wrote over 800 words (which ran from total angst to pure mush), bringing my total to 5500 [face_party]

    A like for your most recent post and a like of sympathy for the second most recent one. Whatever it is, hope nothing too bad happened!

    And yay for Raissa Baiard reaching her record. Findswoman - you must get to 5K, so things are all orderly and nice! I am already annoyed by mavjade 's counts which all end in nines and ...I don't get how one can cope with that. :eek:

    That said, maybe I can beat my November 2016 record, too. Just so everybody beats record.

    BUT NINES ARE SO...INCOMPLETE. O_O

    [face_laugh] Yeah, I thought about writing one more word to make it even, but that was weirder to me than leaving it. But, today I wrote 304 words for a total of 3,753. Is that a little better?

    The question is, can I make it to 5,000 by the end of the month??

    That number sounds good, good, good. No...sense of incomplete stuff. Only nines have that vibe. :D

    Today's my third anniversary on these boards, and I'm celebrating it by just barely scraping 5K: I am at 5001 words for the month, and I have exactly one sentence to go (!) on my Celtic Songs Challenge story. This may or may not be my final count, depending on how things go tomorrow—but given how things have gone this month, it still seems worth celebrating. :)

    Congrats to everyone who beat their personal best!

    I didn't do much writing in the last couple of weeks (unless the 20K words I wrote for the awards planning count :p ) but I did manage some. 3079 "official" new words for a new total of 17805, and I might even manage to officialise (i.e. edit) the epilogue of my dare story before midnight.

    Last update: 1656 more translated words, for a total of 3945.
    I want to thank my family for all their support during all those years. Without them and my cats, I would not have found the strength to go that far. (Oscars-like tears)

    PS: Happy birthday Findswoman

    Thanks, yahiko! But it wasn't my birthday—just the anniversary of the day I joined the boards. My birthday's in October. :)
