I’ve gone through all my posted fics on A03 and manually (read: using MS Calculator) added up the word counts for every year, and found out something awesome:
As of today, I’ve written 38,440 words of fanfic since January*. That’s only fanfic, mind you. That does not include my original (and unpublished) stuff**, which would more than triple that count. But I’ve written more fanfic in this year alone than I did in my first eight years in Internet fandom. Since 2002, I’ve written a grand total of 112,575 words of fanfic.
*For those just tuning in, this means the medications are working, leaving me freer to create than I’ve ever been before I got diagnosed. Therefore, this year-so-far word count, while not at all impressive to some more prolific fan-authors, is a serious milestone in terms of my own wellness. I’M GETTING PAST THE ROADBLOCK, YOU GUYS!!! 😀
ETA: **And, of course, my incomplete fanfics. Derp derp.
