feel the burn!

I’ve discovered something about myself — When pushed, or rather “egged on” – I’m capable of writing 5,000 words a day.

No kidding.

I’ve been averaging somewhere between 4,000 and 5,000 a day, but actually pushed close to 6k one day.  It’s exhausting, because they have to be not just good words, but great words. I write a clean first draft, with little edits afterwards, so I take my words seriously. By the end of a week I’m wiped out, and feel physically drained, but GOD it’s a good feeling !

It’s like excercising – sure it burns, and you’re sweaty and exhausted – but you’ve done such a good thing for your body.  In this case, for the Writerly Mind.

But you know what they say . . . Use it, or Lose it 🙂
