I have discovered a new way to make writing less onerous. If one closes one’s eyes while one types, one becomes less concerned about the page count because one can’t see it. This does, mind you, require a pretty flawless ability to touch-type, but that’s one of my L33T SK1LZ, so it’s working out for me. I am not writing fast–the book won’t be finished tomorrow–but I’m doing a chapter a day, which is enough.
I’m also spending way too much time going “well if I wrote 3500 words a day I would be finished with the NEXT book by May 1st if I started writing it right away!” Yes, well, and if I wrote 10K a day I’d be finished before P-Con. One’s more likely than the other, but still, stupid brain.
All right, this is me procrastinating on the AAs, is what this is, so I guess I’ll go back and work on them some more. :p
