Check out my Daily Almanac1 entry for yesterday. When I saw it this morning, I really couldn’t believe it:
I managed to write over 8,200 words yesterday. I also set a record for the most blogging I’ve done in one day. Of course, most of this was the post I wrote answering people’s questions on paperless lifestyle. I answered 28 questions in that post and the post turned out to be over 6,600 words long.
Even so, I still managed to add about 1,600 words to my work in progress, which now stands somewhere around 55,000 words.
Last Saturday, I set a record for fiction writing, getting in about 5,300 words for the day. Yesterday it was 6,300 for blogging. I imagine those records will stand for a while, as they are kind of difficult to repeat. I could feel it in my fingers yesterday. They felt worn out at the end of the day.
So was I.
