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.

work your way up to a really long writing session, and to take frequent breaks.

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.

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