On another note, I calculated that, at my current rate, it will take me approximately 84 years to finish all my WIPs.

You do know that red cars get stopped and ticketed more often by police than any other color. Next time, steal a baby blue car. They'll just sit in front of the donut shop and snicker.

They also get in more accidents.  That's why I picked a red one; I figured their insurance rates were high enough to cover it.

Is this different from your normal day?   :angel:

Usually I coverup and take my stealth vehicle to stop crime but today I felt I needed to brush up on the mindset of a criminal with firsthand experience.


Dan, what kind of a car was it?

A red one.


I'm taking a break from writing (typing) because I have a possible rotator cuff tear. I set up Dictate in Word and got a mic but so far inspiration hasn't come. I'll keep trying.

Ouch! Hope you feel better soon.  :dog1:

Ditto.  :catrun

I had to re-read the whole thread looking for snark and still haven't seen it.   :icon_think:

The snark in this thread is undesirable.

That being said, the subject of this discussion is simply over-qualified for a thread like 1k words per day, and would be suitable for challenging threads like 15k and 20k words per day clubs.

I haven't seen any snark at all in this thread. And this thread isn't really aimed at Amanda at all. It is more about saying we want to be more like her when it comes to work ethic. There is nothing wrong with that.

As for those numbers, they are way off. She has said she writes 45,000 words a week. That's about 5000 words a day. or 7000 words a day if she takes weekends off. 5000 words a day is nothing if that's what you trained yourself to do. I can write 5000 words in less than four hours. I just can't do it day in and day out, like she does. That's where I can say, "I just wanna be Amanda Lee." There are much worse things a writer can say than wanting to be able to work like she does. She has my awe and admiration and I suspect a lot of other writers here think the same way.

I just saw this, and itís exactly what I meant.  I needed to up my game and sheís an inspiration for that.
And to those that asked, I had a productive weekend, although a little short of my goal.  Still very satisfying, and Iím continuing to perform with more efficiency.

Thanks. I go for an MRI on Monday and see the ortho on Wednesday. Hoping for PT and no surgery. We've already tried an injection with minimal results.

There was snark?  Maybe itís my sense of humour, but I just canít see it.
