131,000 Design Word Challenge: January Update

It’s been a great month for the 131,000 Design Word Challenge–I hit roughly 33,101 words in January, which was somewhat higher than my 11,500-word target. The vast majority of these words came from Raging Swan Press supplements and adventures, while the rest came from blog posts and session summaries. The rough break down is:

  • Articles: 4,125
  • Session Summaries: 4, 354 words
  • Supplements and Adventures: 24,622

I’ve got a feeling I know how I’ve been so productive, and I’ll share more on my strategy and tactics in an upcoming post.

I’m not going to do a graph this month. I know this will disappoint some of you, but a graph with one column seems a tad pointless to me. Who knows what kind of graphical summary I will assail you with next month!

Onwards, to February

    1. Thanks, Mike! It has been a rather productive month. I’ve deployed a couple of new writing tactics that I’ve found very useful. I’ll be blogging about them some point next month.
