50k, YO!!!!!!! I have never written so much so fast before. Daaaang, y’all. 50,920 words in 19 days. That’s definitely a Jimmy record. I chalk up this output to
1) Planning, i.e. having a passable outline. Boy, has Scapple helped with that!
2) Getting up early and getting right into motion! Moving this crazy meat-covered skeleton helps get blood to the brain machine!
3) My dictation rig: a simple treadmill and voice-to-text setup that dumps words into Google Docs
4) NaNoWriMo. Just knowing there are tons of other wordmashers out there mashing words at the same time gives me the extra gumption to keep on keeping on.
And keep on keeping on, I must. I have just now hit the beginning of Act 3 of the first draft of “Ace Tucker Space Trucker 2: The Wrath of Ace.” I will be keeping up this pace and plan to have a 75,000ish draft completed by Dec 1.
Seriously. If an idiot like me can do this stuff, so can you. I mean, seriously. Look at this picture. I’m a complete weirdo. With a bad-looking, itchy writer’s beard.
You can de eeeet!
Keep writing, Weirdo! Your Uncle Jimmy commands it. 🎂🙌💪🔥🤘🎈🧨🎉😁👍😎👏🍕🍗
