A Few Grandpa Anarchy Stats

Here's some Grandpa Anarchy stats:

Stories written before 2012:  7

Some of these were written as far back as 2007 or 2008 I think?

Stories written in 2012:  29

This includes two new stories written before November, a Christmas ghost story to be read at the Tai-Pan Christmas party, and twenty-four stories I finished for NaNoWriMo 2012, in which my goal was to write a new Grandpa Anarchy story a day.  I eventually completed all 30 stories started in that month -- but some desperately need rewrites.

Stories written in 2013:  62

My goal for 2013 was to write a new story a week (or really, 4 a month), which I more than managed to accomplish.  This also includes my Christmas ghost story for December 2013.  By the end of the year I'd written 98 Grandpa Anarchy stories total.

Stories written so far in 2014:  31

It's my goal again this year to write a new Grandpa Anarchy story a week, or at least 48 for the year (4 a month).  But I had only written one in the first three months so I signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo in April with the goal once again to write a new story a week.  I'm better at doing this than I was in 2012.  I not only wrote three new stories in the last three days of March leading into Camp NaNoWriMo, but I managed 27 of 30 stories for April.

Currently I've written 129 total Grandpa Anarchy stories to date -- 122 of them in the last 2 years.  I haven't done a tally of the number of words involved, but a rough guess would be 1,200 words per story, about 155,000 words total.
