My 2015 in Numbers

A fresh, shiny new year has begun. All of the counters have rolled back to zero. We are starting anew.

Before we get too far in, I thought I should take a look at the year that just ended (and set some goals for this leap year):

I walked 3,430,462 steps. That is over 1446 miles! I could have crossed Italy twice.
Goal for 2016: 3.5 million steps

I started tracking books read through GoodReads, as well as words written in July.

In the last half of the year, I read 74 books. My last post listed five of my favorites of the year.
Goals for 2016:
Read 120 books
Monthly blog post with my favorite of the month

In the last half of the year, I wrote 144,139 words. The bulk of those words are in the first drafts of the two novels I wrote this year and over 30 short stories.
Goals for 2016:
Revisions of both first drafts
Query at least 10 agents
3 new first drafts (novels)
75 short stories

Do you have any amazing stats for the year? Goals for 2016?
