Wannabe Writers #40

Wannabe Writers is a great online meme for those of us that are working to become "real" writers.  Every week Sarah posts a question on her website that you answer on hers, you sign up on the Mr. Linky, and then ask a question on your website.  A great way to get tips from other writers.

Where I am in the writing process:
Still a (mostly) unpaid author.  No payment for any fiction I've written.  I have an album review coming up for Frequency Magazine, and am waiting to see when my article for Existentialism.com will be published (check out the sidebar to find the links to anywhere I've been published). I have 10k into my untitled Lilith novel and about 5k of planning written for my NaNoWriMo novel, A Wind to the Gift.  (Click here to buddy me on NaNo)

My current problem:
Right now, probably because I'm just waiting for NaNo to get started I really don't have one.  I think I have just the right amount of planning done, and I've really had to make myself wait for Monday.  I guess just kinda anxious about finally getting around to it.

My question this week:
I know at some point I'll fall miserably behind on NaNo, so give me some hope and tell me: what's the most you've ever written in one day?

Also:
I'm experimenting with serial story writing with 3WW.  Check out Taking Liberty.

If you have a blog with 300 or fewer followers, I'd like you to join my Small Packages blogfest.  C'mon, you know you want to.

Before last year's NaNo, the most I'd ever written in a day was about 4000 words, which was much higher than normal. During NaNo, though, I hit 7k/day several times, and had one day of 10k!!! So you can do it!! :)

Glad you don't have a problem right now.
And you are a real writer.

I can't really say what is the most I've written in one day. I should probably keep track and see.

Good luck with NaNo!

I don't think I've ever written more than 4-5k in a day. I'm pretty good at meeting my daily goal (usually 1k a day during non-NaNo times), and I'd love to have a day when I did nothing but crank out thousands and thousands of words, but I don't know if it'll happen this year...between everything I have going on this month, I'll be lucky if I make it out alive :)
