December's Numbers


Reading:
10 books
(AVG Rating: 2.9 stars*)


 
3 graphic novels, 1 short story, 2 non-fiction, 3 DNFs, and 1 AWESOME cyberpunk.

This month got me back on the reading train (sort of) and hopefully will be a portent of things to come in 2017.

*The average rating was dragged all the way down by those three DNFs. It’s 4.14 without them.

 
Writing:
29,166-words in 22days
(AVG: 1,326-words/day)
4 projects + admin
 


I’d say I’m proud of my focus this month, but if you do the full count, 2/3rds of that count is from admin which is kind of the epitome of a lack of focus. Blog posts like this one, outlines and pitches, some of my business mail, any random bit of writing notes jotted down on my phone while grocery shopping… It’s all stuff I need to get done, but when I see that much orange on a spreadsheet with so little in the way of other writing, I do the scrunchy-face scowl at it.

I suppose I can feel proud of the editing I’ve gotten done. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve no doubt seen the posts here and there of the book I’m slowly gutting. At the moment I think I’m averaging 20 minutes a page… so it’s definitely a long haul.

 
This is the last of my accounting posts for the year, next up, I’ll have a breakdown of what 2016 looked like as a whole with those fun counts and graphs and what not. You’ll have to forgive me for posting only numbers in that one, as a look back at everything else would have me lighting matches and thinking thoughts of the apocalypse.

So yeah, check back Monday to see what I did, how I failed myself, and all that fun jazz. But for now…

Meet me in the desert after midnight, bring extra gasoline, and let’s burn this year down to ashes.
