Default Re: Deadlines and stimulants

You have everything worked out (the beats).


And you are worried whether you can write 4 pages a day for 30 days?


You could easily write twice that number every day.


Really ... I mean, speechless here.

Well, no, not 12 hours (as if I write that long anyway). I do a couple of hours and break away or lower the desk and sit for a short time.

The value, for me, is that I don't have to go to spend $60 at the chiropractor every week.

Yeah, I'm a little nonplussed too.



I write 3-4 pages an hour. More, if they're dialogue heavy.

I know sometimes it can be hard to get the pages out and we've all been there. I assume you're being paid for this though. It's a job like any other and you have to get the pages out. Don't be precious about the pages. If they aren't up to scratch they can be re-written. Once you get into the flow it should be easier.
