October Writing Stats

I posted on Monday that I have finished Karma Kameleon, the sequel to A Bitch Named Karma.

Last month I posted my stats for July, when I was in ultra writing mode. Once again this October, I was back in writing mode and decided to post my stats again!! I like figuring it all out, and hopefully, you all enjoy reading it too!!

Number of days my 1000 word goal was met: 17 (July was 18)
Number of days it was not: 5 (same as July)
Number of days I didn't write at all: 9 (but 4 of those days my laptop was out of commission) (July was 8)
Number of days I wrote at least 1500 words: 9 (same as July)
Number of days I wrote over 2000 words: 2 (July was 4)

Total word count for October: 29,251 (July was 30,590)

I strive for 1000 a day. I like to meet that goal every day, but I don't stress about it, considering I have many days where I exceed that goal. In the end it usually averages itself out. Obviously, I was a little under for October....but I finished the story, so that's all that matters!


  1. I love checking and analyzing stats too, both my own writing progress and who is interested in my writing progress, lol. It's an important part of being a writer.

    Your stats are impressive.

  2. Congratulations on finishing your story, Stephanie. The stats are great. I need to be more prolific, like you.

  3. Thanks everyone!! Unfortunately, I don't get to write like this every month. I do one month, stop to edit and such, then go back full force when I can. I know November will be editing several projects. I have a trip the beginning of December and when i come home, well...we'll be on the countdown to Christmas. So I think it will be impossible to get any real writing done. It will probably be more editing! If things go well, I can start my next book in January!!

  4. Disney...disney...disney....disney. LOL

    Great work!! Drop me an email when you can -- where are you guys staying? I know we'll be there at the same time but I think your schedule was different from ours .... :-)

  5. Atleast you can be proud of yourself for meeting your goals and your accomplishments. Plus this goes right along with NaNo. :)

  6. Good for you! I'm striving for 1000 a day, too. You've inspired me to keep pressing forward.
