This morning I had no words complete for an assignment that is due tomorrow evening.

Now, at 2:25, I have 5,253 words (including appendices).

I'm going to bed.

I finished a 10-pager today, too. After teaching in the Korean university system, I feel like I should get extra credit for not copying the whole thing off the internet like my students do.

Shocked Holy Smokes! Shocked

You can write that much over half a day? I guess it wouldn't include research and all...

Still, that's pretty efficient. I'm the ultimate procrastinator at writing, so it can easily take a couple weeks of on/off-again work for me to muster up 4000 words. Pretty weak, I know.

I once wrote two 8000 word essays in a little over 48 hours nonstop. I will NEVER ever do that again (and got As Razz). I did do my research beforehand though... I just came to Korea for a holiday so didn't do anything for 2 weeks.

Hehe-- reminds me of a paper I did in college where I had to write five pages on any theological topic. I chose the longest word I could think of, transubstantiatianism, because I could program the word into my typewriter, and after it appeared five or six times the page was full.
