Up for 26 hours straight, 8000 words.

But not for Kindle books, but for my web properties.

After my Kindle scare the other day I'm making an effort to rebuilding my affiliate marketing income.

It died a few Panda's ago, $6000 a month to $400.

I'm going to work hard to get it back up to $2,000..... it will give me a lot of security.

I'll be aiming for 5000 words a day on my sites for the next month or two.

931 easy words so far today. Hoping for another 1K

Wondering what it says about me that some of the fastest writing I've done has been about being in a psych ward . . .

I was encouraged by something I read today which said it doesn't matter how slow you go as long as you don't stop.

Can't seem to get into' the zone' at the moment

I do good if I only average a few hundred words per day, normally.

I decided to try and write an entire book (70,000+) during the month of July. It requires 2,258 words per day. As of this morning I am behind by just over 1,000 words, so I'm actually not doing too bad. I'm currently at 10,190. Which reminds me that I need to work on this tonight instead of watching tv.

2k+ words per day is only sustainable (for me at least) if you don't work a 50+ hour week. I'm not sure how I've been able to do it so far, other than pure force.

It's morning where I am (Japan) but I got about 2000 yesterday in two sittings. I recently decided to take on the 52 short stories in a year challenge talked about on Kindleboards, and in the last fifteen days I've got 21k words down, compared to about 5k for the rest of year to date combined. Pretty happy with that.

I killed the internet on my writing computer and probably saved my writing career.
