Default What's the most you have written in one go?

For me it's 10 pages and that just because there was a deadline.

I use to be able to write that much, years ago when I didn't realize how much I suck.
Now I write far less and am fully aware of how much I suck all the way through.

I did an all day marathon for my last spec, about 60 pages in 15 or 16 hours. Then I have to spend the next day rereading and editing to make sure it wasn't a total trainwreck. Which, you know, parts of it invariably are, but that's fine. Part of the process.

30-40 pages in about 12 hours, straight. That passion however has since been slaughtered by the business side of the industry that I wish I didn't have to deal with. Just need to find my mojo again

I've ground my way through about 25 pages of a treatment in one marathon session - but I slow down radically when it comes to an actual script. (Hence my forum name).

I wrote 70 pages in about three hours. Unique, high concept premises can do that to a writer.

I think 30 in a page would be the cap for me...
