just a note  

Just a brief note to say I have just reached 270,000 words for the year, officially putting paid to my last year’s total wordcount, which was 269K. And it’s only the 12th of July. o.o

That is all.

Aiming for 150% or 200%? Or no aiming, just plugging away?

Just plugging away. It doesn't really matter. :)

My score: I've written a 28,000 word novella, a 103,000 word novel, all but 4000 words of a 13,000 word novelette, and a whole bunch of interviews. So I'm probably around 145,000 paid words in the same period, and that's close to everything I wrote in the whole of 2007.

(On the other hand, I was on the road for a total of ... six weeks? Two US trips, eastercon, Dublin trip, Berlin trip. Yup, it adds up. So: I has 25% less time to write in. And those interviews? At one point I did six in a month, probably averaging 3-4000 words each.)

Somewhere there is a universe in which neither you nor I (nor matociquala) are insane. This, however, is not that world.

I am impressed, too. From your brain to my bookshelf - I love it!

I swear, there are days when it feels like a direct download, because I've been writing so much... :)

It's bad enough that you kick everyone else's hind ends. Now you're kicking your own! :)
