I wanted to stick to the NaNoWriMo quota of 1,667 per day...but finals killed that plan dead in the water. Anyway, over break I'm shooting for 2k+ per day in hopes of bumping 58K to 100k by New Year's and finishing the sucker sometime in January. Hopefully.

WOW. You guys are simply inspiring! I try to sit down and write every day. If I make it through a paragraph - well then, that's an accomplishment on it's own. I've tried to sit down and write "x" amount of words at a time but that never works for me. It kind of works against me. When I'm in the mood, I write. I guess if I had to do it for a living I'd try to be a little more productive. Wink

Ha! I only wish I could make a living at this...I can write like a madwoman, but can't edit my own work worth crap. Even random essays I have to cart off to my mother for the brutal dissection.

I write 2000 words per day (even if I have to open the dictionary and copy them)

It's roughly a 1000/day for me whether I feel like writing or not. I find it helpful not to have a real life (family, friends, fun, etc.).
