I've written 19609 words this year.
I'm 26% of the way to my goal of 75,000 words in 2017.
Am following advice from the book 5000 Words Per Hour: Write Faster, Writer Smarter, and am liking it, but my hands hurt! Especially the third and fourth fingers on my right hand. So I'm going to follow one of the last pieces of advice in the book, which is to use voice dictation. It's a weird adjustment, it takes a long time to train the software, and the software/hardware seems kind of finicky, but in the long run it'll hopefully be worth it, both at work and home.
Also got a little more involved with the GYWO community, which is active and friendly and absolutely wonderful. I tried out some of the community's advice on outlining and productivity, signed up for a bingo card on literary devices (I wish I had chosen genre or setting instead -_-), and participated in a word war--just once, because the schedule doesn't work out with mine, but I'll try again when I'm less busy with work.
Currently writing: a long, silly FF6 fic, and my assignment for Interhigh 2017! Also need to eventually type out (or dictate?) my silly handwritten Chihayafuru fic, and get back to work on my silly novel. La la la ~
