I didn’t write but 1/3 of what I wanted to write in May, but in the end, when I looked harder at the numbers, I discovered it wasn’t as bad a failure as it feels. May’s word count comes in at 35,296.
Only 7 months out of 46 have been higher. May was my 47th month of publishing, and that makes June my 4 year anniversary as a self-publisher. :D How absolutely amazing!
Between April and May, I’ve had my best two month word count, ever, by 1,470 words.
February–March 2013 = 91,075 words
April–May 2016 = 92,545 words
My next best two month period was November–December 2015 when I wrote 73,377 words.
Gotta say, I’m happier than I was after looking at these numbers. I’m still showing improvement, and I’m excited by my progress. :D Here’s hoping June is a great month for word counts. :)
