750 Yesterday. I won't hit the target to day though as I'm only a few hundred words from the end.

ETA: Added another 342 words, including The End.

Been meaning to ask you guys...or at least pdblake, who dominates here...how do you find the time to write that much? In between work and unwinding from work, as well as sleep, I can never manage to, at best, double my five-hundred-word output once in awhile...

I tend to write at night once the youngest has gone to bed, but write whenever I can make the time and find a bit of quiet:)

I also find it helps to have some kind of structure laid out so I know the general direction I'm going and can just write without having to plot as well.

I always make time to write, within reason, and try to always write 1k a day, though it doesn't always happen. I find I write more if I'm writing a short. Novels tend to be a bit of a slower slog.

The worst bit for me is finishing one and having to plot the next. It always takes a little bit of forcing myself to get going again.

It does get a little faster for me the closer I get to the end.

4k ish today.

Won't get much done tonight though. Daughter has set the bedroom on fire and the dog's just gone missing (not in the fire thankfully). What a start to the weekend.
