How much do you write in an average month?

Hi everyone,

since we're still trying to figure out what a good goal for the site-wide wordcount challenge is, I thought a poll might help.

So, simple question: What is your average monthly wordcount?

Thanks!

Just wanted to note: the number I put up is when I'm actually working on something. I can go massive dry spells with under 5k/month.... sooo, hoping for the best?

I...have absolutely no idea. :O Lol, the only time I really keep track is during NaNoWriMo, and even then that's...barely. And I haven't actually written anything since NaNo, and that wasn't much.

Unhelpful answer is unhelpful. XD

Anyone else have any answers to this question?

I'm in the "less than 10k" group - though I won NaNo twice, so I definitely can write more, I just seem to lack motivation outside of NaNo. Hope a 6 month long writing challenge is what I need to establish a solid writing habit ;)

I'd probably say that in an average month (where there is no family drama/health issues/problems with dogs) I can average about 12-15k.

I do write quite a bit by hand though, which makes it difficult to keep an exact track.

When gathering RP posts in English and novel scenes in Romanian, I'd average 30,000 words or more.
