Holy smokes

Tonight, I decided to start Newy, to just see how I like it. 2,500 words later, I am burning to keep on writing, but it's 1 am, and I seriously have to sleep.

Man. I am totally wired right now. I don't want to stop.

This is exciting.

Go, Renee, go! Have fun!

Welcome to the race then:) Come, join us in our insanity!

Renee Collins said...

Well, I start this race late. Aren't you two projecting completion within a month?

At that rate, in order to compete, I would need to write like 10 pages a day, non stop.

hmm . . . I wonder.

Renee Collins said...

I think I have decided one thing, though. I'm gonna ride this wave as far as it takes me.

*grins* I get excited just talking about it.

Natalie said...

Yay! I love that feeling. I'm so happy it's coming easily for you. You ride it, ride it hard.

Me, probably a month, yeah, but I bet Kiersten's done in two weeks. I'm wussing out on my challenge due to possible burn out. I'm gonna take it at 1k a day like I planned. That should put me done before August.

Renee Collins said...

Yeah, you might be right. I don't want to burn out, or worse, write a crappy story because I want to hurry up and finish.

Natalie said...

Eh you can always clean it up later, get it out while it's hot.

It's just that I'm so used to writing 1k a day now that it doesn't seem like much, but it is! I can't forget that.

Renee Collins said...

For sure, 1k is great, especially when it is consistantly delivered. Back when I was writing through Tristan, I could go a few days before I reached 1k.

I wrote Tut incredibly slowly. Even my short stories took me a few months, because I would go long stretches without working on them.

That's why I'm in insane-o mode with Flash. I'm worried if I stop I'll get out of the groove and leave it for a long time.

But I'm also way more invested than I was in my other writing. I never used to sit there during other things and think about how long until I could write more.

Kiersten, I kind of fell the same way about Newy. I want to strike while the iron is hot, otherwise the story might lose something. Maybe it's just superstition.
