20,000 words this week and other nonsense

I'm trying something new this week. Mostly because I managed to break a new personal record for words written in one day and I didn't even have dedicated time to write. I wrote in the morning, I wrote on my lunch hour, I wrote in the evening, and I wrote at night. I think that I clocked in somewhere around 5500 words--or 5,500 words if you prefer.

For today--Tuesday--the day was a little more complicated so I'm only sticking around 2,100 words as of right now.

This is probably a ridiculous goal, but I think that I'm going to shoot for 20,000 words this week. Yesterday 1,000 of those words were on a separate project that, in all likelihood, will never see the light of day. The other 4500, though, were for a project that I will probably self-publish under one of my pen names.

Anyways, I just thought that I would declare my goal for the internet.

One of the big reasons for my increase in output has to do with the fact that instead of writing for the last week or two, I've been working on touch typing: it should be a required course in school. I can't believe that I thought it was a stupid thing to take at the time. If only someone would have told me what an incredible skill it was to have. I think that I would have even had a much easier time in college if I had been typing at this speed the whole time.

Anyways, here's the picture of the day from Wikimedia Commons.
