One year at my job! I entered into a career relatively late – bad economy, grad school, continuing bad economy – so I’m still a new-comer in my field, despite my age. This one-year anniversary is a source of pride and relief. Stability, at long last!
Despite this full-time job, I’ve done more writing in this past year that I had during my long months of under/unemployment. All that time was spent in depression, and those hours at home were empty.
Here are some estimated word counts from March 2014 to March 2015, for things that I’ve finished or are close to finishing:
- NaNo: 50,000
- DA Big Bang: 30,000
- Short story: 4,000
- DA short story: 2,000
Short list, but I really limited the list; I have a number of Google docs for drabbles and I’ve almost filled my fiction notebook. Can’t get word counts from my written notes, but for the stuff I have in Google:
Eh, not amazing, but not bad either.
