I cheated

I won Nano, yes, and today I went in and uploaded my file so I'd be an official winner, with a certificate suitable for printing and everything. Only, well, I had already combined the two Taste of Magic files and I didn't want to fool with just pasting in the part I wrote during November as opposed to the part I wrote during the latter half of October. So I pasted the whole thing in, which is my I look like I wrote 30-some thousand words today.

On the other hand, damn this is the fastest book I ever wrote. I can't remember the precise day I started it, but if it's been more than a few days over six weeks I'd be surprised. 82,000 words in six weeks! Go me!

Okay, I will give you the cheating bit, but it is still an impressive number by any standard. Congrats. I look forward to joining the ranks of the done tomorrow.

There is no cheating. Only winning. You win.

I'm just wondering how long I can keep the writing streak going. I've charged happily into the sequel without slowing down. I expect to lose energy pretty soon, but I'll keep going as long as I can.

Yow. And double yow. I'm happy when I get a page, although maybe that's because I'm an obsessive editor.

See how productive you could be, if only you were content to write crap like I do?
