    6,502 new words/words rewritten to death since last week, for a grand total of 9,004.

    I finished the epic I began in 2014, for realz this time. No more edits and rewrites, other than any typos my beta will catch. It feels weird [face_worried]

    Hooray! Just finished the OC challenge story and as a result am now at 2576. (Three-hundred-some of that is notes, but that's all right, right?)

    Im currently sitting at 4266. I'm hoping I can break the 5000 word mark by the 30th. And now I am questioning if I counted ~1200 words I wrote a few nights ago. My brain must be fried.

    My count remains at 452 words.

    And it is probably going to stay there: I don't talk about my personal life online, but suffice it to say that this has been a hard month. While I can think about writing in the abstract, I still have very little interest in actually doing it, and there is not a way I'm going to write even 1000 words before midnight on July 1. I suppose it's a good thing there will likely be a next time, because for this time, I'm done.

    I made it to 5586! I don't forsee myself getting too many more words in, but I had fun this month just kinda floundering around, doing random vignettes (and a short story that I still gotta work on and finish). But now my muse seems to have gotten an idea for another longer-ish fic that I need to get going on (we should have had this race in July [face_laugh] )

    Agree about July.

    And lazy to count, probably won't count before the last day. Can be anywhere between 25 and 30, but FOCUSING ON THINGS IS HARD, OK?

    Briannakin - this midnight on 30 June deadline; is that our local midnights, or are you going to give us a countdown to the Pacific Standard Time (or whatever) version?

    I am using my own time zone because I'm weird about dates, so my final count is 27412.

    I spectacularly failed to follow through most of my plans due to unpleasant events throughout the month.

    *Three fic-gifts. Did not happen. Did not happen with the four non-fic awards, either.

    Not a single word.

    "Most of that", yes. All of it, no - some of the chapters have not been complete.


    June not complete. August not complete. July consists of a couple of paragraphs.

    Wrote 87 words on Aurea. Great (not).

    Some prompts ended up in my DDC, I still want to use the rest of them because they're beautiful.

    ...

    Either my DDC should get a restraining order, or I should. This is such a clusterkriff. :(

    Final word count: 9004

    I wrote more this month than I've written in nearly a decade. Now I'm gonna destroy everything I wrote...
