I’m a bit late reporting in after the end of Story-a-Day May. You can blame that on moving into a new house. It does tend to interrupt the flow of things. On to the specifics!
First, I’ll start by giving the details of Week 5 — the final week of the challenge.
31 of 31 Stories Written
Week 5 Words Written: 9,749
Total Word Count (Month So Far): 80, 976
Average Words Per Day (To Date): 2,612
Week 5 Story Titles:
- The Grandchildren of God
- Stronger Than the Call of Shadows
- He Who Denies Death His Due
- Her Pregnant Song
So, in total during the month of May — in case you missed it in the numbers up there — I wrote 80,976 words of fiction. That’s 967 words more than last year’s challenge. But what I’m more excited about is the larger number of stories that I wrote which I believe have promise. I’m very excited about editing these stories and getting them sent out. I have high hopes for them.
This challenge is always difficult, but so worth it. I’d like to say thanks to everyone who read my stories, commented, and/or just offered a word of encouragement or support. You guys rock! 🙂
