    I'm writing later. I have a feeling it's going to take a couple of evenings to hit 20K. D:

    Just don't burn yourself out, Lisa. I went for a 24 hour session reaching 17K. The time within that 24 hours with actual writing was closer to 17 hours though. I took lots of breaks. Closer to the end of it, I was so tired and my hands were cramped and I kept complaining about not finishing and then I did finish with an extra 100 words lol. The next three days, I hardly wrote. I think I only got an extra 500 words, though I was revising/expanding.

    I suggest you pace yourself.

    When you say "pace yourself", what do you mean?

    Hey guys

    How are you?

    Hope Will is okay. My dad was once taken to hospital with chest pain in the middle of the night. Pretty terrifying. (My dad's fine now, and I hope Will will be too.)

    It is a good thing he's going to hospital. Grandma had chest pains ... and then had a heart attack.

    From a family of people prone to heart problems, I know how scary chest pains can be. More often than not, things turn out okay, though. I hope that goes for you guys.

    I'm not sure what to do tonight, writing wise.

    Writing for... four hours straight was very draining, but I really want to hit 20K tonight. I'll be difficult to do it tomorrow otherwise.

    Hey everyone!

    Watching the last episode of Sherlock in season 1. I can't believe there were only three episodes. I want more!

    Don't spoil, I still have to watch it. Put it off for Hairspray. Maybe tonight...

    I am never writing for four hours straight with no breaks ever again. It is so draining.

    My boyfriend, after watching Sherlock: "I didn't really believe you before. I mean, it's not that I didn't trust you, but you were talking about it like it was the second coming of Jesus or something... and it kind of is."
