Welcome to Gaia! ::

I was so happy I nearly hit 8K on my first day (my count for my first day was 7800, a first for me), and I wrote nearly non-stop (not including the times I had to stop to sleep, eat, bake cookies and drive to my nano write-in). I've heard that 50K in one day is possible, but it's like a very, very, very, very, very hard possible.


It is possible. If you write sixty words a minute, you'd be able to manage just over 50,000 words in about fourteen hours. Though that's if you wrote for fourteen hours straight. I don't see anyone doing that, but 50,000 words in one day is very possible. You'd probably just have to be really, really patient.

And congratulations on the 7.8k! So jealous.
The only person I know who's finished is a Swedish girl who got it all done in just under 21 hours. I can't vouch for the quality of what she wrote, but it's possible.

Me, I'm at a leisurely 7K. I went a bit mad with the writing yesterday and hit 5K, I'm going more slowly today but hope to reach 8K in the next hour.

thanks. I don't think it's my best work, but it's easy to write. The stuff I take more seriously take me longer to write then the fluff pieces.

I'm sitting at just over 15k. I have a lot of free time right now. No job, and minimal studies. Pretty much the perfect situation for something like this.

I wrote 50k over the summer in 14 days, writing every other day ---because I had literally nothing else to do.

It was also such s**t I had to completely scrap it. I mean. . .. so very very very bad XD

Moving at a much more sane pace for the real attempt myself.
