My Writing Stats for 2017

Written by Kodi Wolf at 11:13 AM

December was a bit of a struggle. It didn't help that I ended up in the ER again with another kidney stone, but mostly I think I just caught the holiday bug and wanted to goof off with my wife. But somehow I managed to get my writing done and still have a great vacation, since Corene was able to take a couple weeks off (which she doesn't have to go back to work until next week, so yay! :) ).

My total word count for December was 20,006, which averages out to 645 words per day. My lowest words per day was 91 and my highest was 2,314.

Despite all the medical crap, 2017 was another amazing year for me (including getting to see the total solar eclipse on my 13th wedding anniversary) and I'm happy to report that I still haven't broken my writing streak. I started that on January 9, 2016, which means it's been 724 days, including today.

My goal for 2018 is to just keep doing what I'm doing because it's obviously working. I'm writing and I'm really enjoying writing, which for me is the most important part. Getting my stories closer to being finished is just a bonus. :)

Anyway, here's a look at some of my statistics for 2017.

I ended up writing less total words than last year, but I met several other goals. I maintained a daily average of at least 500 words, I worked on a story every day, and I finally posted some new content.

Here's to writing and posting more new content in 2018.

Happy New Year, everyone. :)
