Peice of cake man, I never knew I wrote so quickly until I started keeping track of my word count. 50,000 words is a really easy goal (at least for me I guess).
This has literally only been 6 Days, I started this on the 9th.

=.= I hate you.

Okay, okay, more like am seriously jealous of you. I've got about 24,000 words on my novel, but I've been working on it for nearly about two years now. A friend of mine tries to bully me into doing NaNoWriMo, and this is why I didn't let her.

I wish I have the TIME to sit down and write that much, and the ability to do so WITHOUT constantly going back and rereading that paragraph and editing as I go. >.<

Glad it's going so well for you, though! Really! I promise!

But I do edit and proofread too. Even this, it would be much longer by now if I wasn't checking it as I went along.

At the end of every chapter I go back and re-read it two or three times and tweak it then move onto the next. I've always done that, I miss things yes, but I cannot constantly go over the same part more than four or five times max you lose the momentum and you can over tweak something and lose the heart of the story I've learned.

It's all about the story to me, I'm really not bothered if every comma isn't perfect. I make sure I get the basics right. You, Your, You're, There, They're, Their, and I make sure that the words flow and make sense and say what I want them too and do basic grammar and punctuation but beyond that?

That's what an editor's job is in real life and I have Sel who is a wonderful beta and fixes the little things I miss in my inital proofing re-reads.

But I do write all the time after work. I sit down, check e-mail and then write or draw until bedtime.

I don't watch TV, I don't go out (I hate going out) a fun time for me is being creative.

I bow down to your mad writing skillz.

I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!
