April writing goal complete! [Apr. 30th, 2017|09:37 pm]

The official result:

April word count goal:  20,000
April word count achieved: 20,900

Despite being so far ahead as of a week ago, I had to scramble today to still make the goal, after this last week turned into Hell Week (my housing situation for the rest of the year unexpectedly falling through and the mental toll that took, car issues that took all week to resolve, sudden job possibility that came up that I spent a lot of Friday figuring out details about, etc.); plus most of the writing I was doing this week was actually editing existing stories, which doesn't tend to generate many new words. So I came into the weekend a couple thousand words short, which isn't a lot of words...but is a lot of words if the only "writing" on the docket is revising an existing 30-page fic.

And then in a sudden burst today I wrote an entire short fic – a Sherlock one-shot – that I'd never expected to write, over the course of this afternoon. So now I've more than met my word goal and suddenly I have four completed stories on my desktop. What.

(Adding this note a bit after the fact, because I forgot at first to add the automatic footer over at Dreamwidth..... Crossposted from Dreamwidth, which is now my primary journal. Comments are fine in either place.)
