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!

  3. Renee Collins on June 28, 2008 at 3:21 pm

    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.

  4. Renee Collins on June 28, 2008 at 3:23 pm

    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.

  5. Natalie on June 28, 2008 at 3:50 pm

    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.

  6. Renee Collins on June 28, 2008 at 3:53 pm

    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.

  7. Natalie on June 28, 2008 at 5:59 pm

    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.

  8. Renee Collins on June 28, 2008 at 7:31 pm

    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.

  9. Kiersten on June 28, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    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.
