DigiWriMo 2015 update

I got off to a great start but then tapered off dramatically. Also, much of my word count came from writing prep; not that much was actually finished.

I never got Scrivener Finals Target working so I created a minimal Google Sheets spreadsheet. But it required me to ensure I recorded some reasonably accurate idea of each day’s count at the end of the day before heading to bed. Not sure why I didn’t get Finals Target to work as I had it working for DigiWriMo 2014 and 2012.

Was I successful? However I might want to define that. Before attempting to answer the question, though, let me say that I just don’t care. I lost my motivation early, clearly, and several other events intervened at the end of the month to keep me from making any real progress.

A fairly accurate word count is 27695. I was aiming for 35k so 27695 / 35000 = 0.7912 or almost 80%.

At habitually probing generalist (here) I had 3 posts with one about one of the topics I had hoped to cover and two related to DigiWriMo itself.

At by the barrel I had 5 posts with only one about DigiWriMo and one guest post from my wife. I did not get any homebrew posts written but I did do The Session #105 and a book review.

I also had one post at Commonplacing. Had hoped to get a few more added.

I had almost no engagement with anyone else although I did poke at some of the official blog posts and such from the DigiWriMo crew. I was the only one who could make me write and I would or I wouldn’t. I also had very little interest in pursuing multimodal “writing” projects. Those sorts of things are theoretically interesting but not really my thing.

Success? Whatever.

Trying to wrap my head around moving on to next year. I still have a major project I “failed at” this year ahead of me. It will not go away until it is taken care of. Period. So it is a major project again this coming year. Lots of smaller projects are still projects.

Leaving 2015 behind. Thank you.
