Ursula has such a way with words.

Normally, under any sane circumstances, 2300 or so words a day would be a totally respectable wordcount. But to get this book done this week, I need to be doing 5K. I went to Ursula and whimpered. She said, “Ah. So the problem is that you’re doing mere superhuman productivity instead of Blazing Avatar of the Writing Godhead productivity?”

I knew she’d understand.

ytd wordcount: 150,600
miles to Minas Tirith: 264.9

Ah, so now I know:

1,000 a day is merely human.
2,300 to 3500 (I'm guessing) is superhuman
4500+ per day is Avatar status

We need to fill in the blanks here and edit as appropriate. Might help me in my goals...

In fact, by any normal standards, 1000 words a day is pretty damned speedy in and of itself. But yeah, that's probably not a bad approximation... :)
