2016: A review about shit I wrote

This is a pretty boring and self-indulgent review because this is the first time I'll be doing something like this. Why do something like this you ask? Because I believe that 2016 had been the most productive year I had when it comes to writing.

So even if I have no data to compare my shit with. Here are the numbers I've gathered:

Total fanfics: 10 (9 are for Osomatsu. 2 still ongoing)
Original fics: 2 (1 still ongoing)
Revision: 1 

Now let's talk in WORD COUNT!

Total published words for original fics: 16095
Total published words for fanfics: 95,858 (with 93,802 for Osomatsu fanfics. WOW)

Total published words: 111,953

I noticed something very important while I was getting these word counts. The last update I did for Heartbeats was on April 2016, and the first fanfic I've written for Osomatsu-san was also last April 2016. Something happened to me that day. It's like the day I've casted my humanity aside and jumped into this bottomless dark pit. Back then I really thought that after making one fic I could easily go back and be normal again. Apparently, that was not the case.

I really blame Osomatsu for everything. I'm just so inspired all the fucking time and it's so easy to write in this fandom. I enjoy it though, and I still have so many things I want to write that I hope I get to put all these ideas out there.

Hopefully 2017 would also be kind to me! And if this fandom continues, here's to reaching 100k word count for JUST Osomatsu-san!

First post of the year

Started my year with the usual suspects: fandom, overtime at work, spending money on shit and of course thinking of doing something new!

So today I finally tried that kenjutsu class. It was so much fun!

There was an advance class when I came in so basically I just had to try my best and mimic everything. I sucked though and I can't even remember how many times I said sorry.

But in the end it was a good experience and now I'm thinking of making it a regular thing. It's a nice exercise and it's something I want to do.
