I missed more blog updates in the past few weeks than I ever have in the five years + that I’ve been writing it. The reason for this was that I was working on a massive order of writing for a client. I wrote 200,000 words in four weeks. I didn’t write over the weekend, but I worked every week day, which meant that I was producing 10,000 words a day. In the past, the most writing I had ever produced was possibly when I did NaNoWriMo back in 2010, which had me produce 50,000 words in a month, so this was obviously a lot more. The experience was quite interesting, as I honestly believe I could do even more if I pushed myself, but this really took a lot out of me. I barely got to leave the house or see my friends. This was a shame, because I get lonely. My fingers even started to ache a few times. My body felt weak because I was moving so little. On the other hand, it’s quite satisfying to know that I managed to reach this large target and it is probably among my proudest writing achievements. Now that it’s all wrapped up, I look forward to a bit of a break for the rest of the year, as well as the opportunity to get back on track with this blog and all of my other writing projects.
