Closing balance 2013

(Yes, yes, a bit late, I know XD)

2013

Once again, it’s the season for stats. I started the graph late so January is mostly guesstimated and averaged. I managed to write almost every day, and even on that day I did not write I did some plotting, so it was not a total loss. The total wordcount for 2013 was around 332,000. It is considerably lower than the estimated for 2012 (370,000) and many of the stories have a lower quality – either that or I am still miffed about how bad Tokyo Shadows . I really want to have a look at Kuraokami again and see how it reads after letting it sit for a while though.

Let’s have a look at the writing I did this year, with the following key:
(*) Wordcount > 50,000
(+) Wordcount: 10,000 – 50,000
(^) Wordcount: 1,000 – 10,000
(@) Wordcount: 300 – 1,000
(%) Wordcount < 300
