About half an hour ago a friend asked me how many words I have written so far from the beginning of this year.
I did some math – it was a lot easier than I thought because I keep track of my projects wordcount: blog posts, work on my stories, articles and reports, translations.
The total came up to roughly 650.000 words in 2017.
A little more than 2000 words per day, every day – roughly 270.000 words only in blog posts here on Karavansara and on my Italian blog.
Which is actually less than I hoped for – I was aiming at 1.000.000 words in 2017.
But well, I still have seven weeks before the end of the year.
Writing 3000 words per day every day until New Year’s Eve, I might be able to pack another 150.000 words into this year.
800.000 would not be a bad number.
And in 2018 I will do a day-by-day wordcount tally, using a spreadsheet.
To do statistics on it.
I like statistics.
