Statistics (2006-2015)

Hi, luvs!

Recently I've been working on a statistics project and I've come up with some good numbers. :) I've been keeping word counts of all my posts on LJ, starting in 2010, but the years 2006-2009 were not tabulated, so I decided to go back and count things up since those years were my most prolific on LJ. It took awhile but was fun to do as I revisited old stories and tallied quite a few words for my fanfic writing.

During the 'missing years' I posted dozens of stories or chapters of multi-chaptered stories per month. One month in 2009 saw 17 stories posted and that didn't even count the chapters of longer works! So my Muses were white-hot in those days. The period of my most prolific output coincided with an explosion of fannish energy and activity on LJ in which I was posting and reading dozens of stories per week. Good times! :)

The following statistics represent all fiction posts made to LJ. All were fanfic with the exception of 3 original fics I posted in 2009*. These stats do not count writing made for profic or non-posted stories. 2006 was a very low number as I didn't start posting any fic until December of that year. I had created my journal on October 24, 2006 and lurked for a bit to see how things were done. :) 2016 statistics were not included as that is a WIP. 2011 was the beneficiary of 3 Big Bangs and a Big Bang-length zine story that eventually ended up on LJ. Whew!
