Thanks to someone, sorry I forget who, I registered at UpWork and got myself a new client. Have just finished the last of 20 articles (500 words each), so that, together with my other regular writing gig, meant writing over 13,000 words this week.
My sister-in-law, a writer and editor, used to churn out 7,000 per day. However, I'm still pretty pleased with my lot.
In my Scrivener project, where I keep all my articles, blog posts, hubs, the running total is now over 400,000 words in three years. I could have written four books by now
What's the most you've ever written in a day/week/month?
Back in the day when I was super active on Hubpages I'd write about 2000 words a day for months! Now - I'm lucky if I publish one hub a month!
I did write 50,000 words in a month for Nanowrimo - still have to finish that novel! :-)
I stopped writing, in the main. I figured that one GOOD piece can generate £200-£1000/year..... so if I was writing more and it wasn't producing that then I needed to stop .... and think about what I was doing.
Having written something it can be better to spend time tweaking it or promoting it - or forgetting it - rather than concentrating on new material.
Of course, if you're paid to write, then that's not an issue as you're being paid already/anyway.
But I love the buzz of the "high performers" and you can't re-create that just by producing new content.
Here I do 5-6 per year now
Well done I don't know the total number of words I've typed in a week, but I'd assume it's around 10k-ish. I think I usually average about 3k a week. The most I've done in a day was about 6k. Keep up the good work!!!

I don't know how many I've ever written, of course, but I've got two Scrivener projects where all my published writing for the last four years is stashed. And Scrivener keeps wordcounts for everything.One is my blog, HubPages and miscellaneous work for people.The other is for my main client's two...

what factors help you decide if a hub is too long? I know different styles of hubs based on topics and what not help determine how long it is going to be. I worry about what is to many words though.

I'm working on a hub providing a beginners guide to programming languages and its getting quite long - I'm definitely going to hit 2000 words with it and will probably go up to 2500 unless I really make an effort to keep the length down.Is that too long? It seems quite a lot for a single page to me...

I hit my 100th featured article recently, I'm very happy, It doesn't seem like a lot, but I have a ton of articles that are too short for Hubpages that I'm rewriting, along with new articles that I'm writing from scratch, but I have hit triple digits, WOO!

Anyone else taking an alternative to NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year?I find each year that by 20 days in I really dislike the direction of my novel and want to change something key, but don't have the time to do it and still finish my word count to complete the challenge.So I...
