good grod.

Jeri Smith-Ready, a fellow Luna author, reached the 300K wordcount goal for 2007 that I fell a bit short of. We were discussing it in her comments and she said, “Yeah, but you wrote 400K in 2006, right?”

And yeah, I had. And then out of curiosity I went and looked up the wordcounts I’d achieved over the last five years.

250K in 2003. 305K in 2004. 300K or so in 2005. 400K in 2006. 269K in 2007.

That’s a million and a half words. 1,524,000, to be more or less exact. And that’s just fiction. Not blogging, not chatting, not online roleplay, just fiction.

No wonder my brain is tired. And *no*, I am *not* going to try to make it a nice round 2 million by the end of 2008, thank you very much.
