Hi, all. Well, if Twitter didn’t tip you off, my schedule has been working fine thus far. I proudly present the fruits of my labour below in a pretty table:
So there’s no confusion, the first column is the hours working, the central column is the number of pages completed and the right-hand column is the number of words written. I wrote eight A4 sheets in fifteen hours. Not sure what other people average, but I’m pretty happy with it for now.
Here’s the thing though: I’ve just seen a book which casually throws out the figure, “three pages per day.” Now, don’t worry, no-one out there needs to take it upon themselves to usher me to one side and gently explain that people write at different speeds. However, since I’m a bit pressed for time this week – I’m spring-cleaning and having a friend over for a couple of nights – I reckon I’ll attempt this target myself. Not sure what constitutes a page in this context (a standard book page or an A4 page?) but I’ll attempt A4s and see what happens.
I’ll let you know how I get on. I’m sorry I’m only offering a quick post today, but I’ll hopefully write a follow-up sometime this week. I just saw that warm, bright sunshine and had the strongest urge to… hole myself up indoors and reorganise old university work.
Hmm. That isn’t healthy.
