2018: summary


Words of fanfic read per month, based on the monthly update posts. Thus the figure is low-balled as the posts don’t include fics I read but didn’t like, nor the updates for incomplete works I follow. And it of course doesn’t include all I read that wasn’t fanfic (yet, but I’m working on that for next year!).

After doing some sampling during the year, I have measured that I read about 120k words of fanfic updates per week.

  • December 2017 → January 2018: 2,204k
  • January → February: 2,090k
  • February → March: 62k
  • March → April: 779k
  • April → May: 1,099k
  • May → June: 2,400k
  • June → July: 3,486k
  • July → August: 232k
  • August → September: 1,546k
  • September → October: 1,146k
  • October → November: 677k
  • November → December: 112k
  • Updates (estimated): 6,240k

(Total: 22 million words, down from 32 last year.)
