That's my NaNoWriMo word count for 11/6. I don't think I've ever written that many in a day before. EVER. For anything. Now 10K in a day seems doable where it once seemed unlikely. Now I'm at 19,267 new words for my project in six days. Wow...

Am off to bed now, feeling highly satisfied with my efforts. :D And yes, I apparently can type fairly quickly when in flow. And I don't touch-type very well. Now I want to learn so I can do that and maybe increase my speed. Get to that 1 million words that a writer needs to get out of their system, or so I've heard.

I did not used to be remotely able to write this quickly. I'm not sure how much it's helping that I'm reconstructing an old NaNo project that was lost. In any case, I'm about to have to work on plot again, and that could be fun. I'll make it that way somehow. :)

Wow! Congratulations! :D

I believe there are online tools that will teach you how to type...no recommendations, but I remember looking into it before my daughter took her keyboarding class.

Thanks. See below for today's word count. :)

I bought something for my Mac a few months ago. I'll start practicing after NaNo. Too much to do right now to mix in something that might throw me off a bit. After all, I'm doing pretty well right now. Why mess with what's working in the middle of a project? Am hoping the lessons learned on the bigger keyboard will translate onto my Linux notebook's smaller keyboard.

Thank you! I managed 6,895 today. Without spending an hour learning about Scrivner I might've cracked 8K or better. So... maybe next week. :D
