  1. You are a rock star!! Good for you. Send some of that productivity my way ;)

  2. Excellent. So glad I'm not the only one who writes in fits and starts throughout the day.

    1. About 1.2k is my normal word count. 2k is a big day for me!

  3. Woot woot! Congrats on the victory, Jaye!
    Writing any amount over 1K always makes me feel like a rockstar too! :D

  4. Any way that gets the words there works just fine!

  5. Too funny! Sometimes the words flow in one giant waterfall of productivity. Sometimes they come drop by drop. Way to be persistent!

  6. Now if you could only help those of us who write TOO many words!

  7. Ha! Loved reading this--especially the ending! Congrats on all the words, Rock Star. :)

  8. Excellent. My weekend writing is quite similar. It happens in short spurts, between brief intervals of chores, and goofing off.

  9. I LOVE this! Well done, my friend, and thank you so much for your awesome post about Sydney. What a joy and an honor my time with that guy was...


Hey, do you ever wonder why they call it 'your two cents?'
