Okay, my brief foray into going caffeine-free has ended, dismally and with little fanfare.
After three steaming cups of Java last night:
4000 words on my “catharsis” story.
200 words–kicking and screaming and spitting in my face, on the Halloween story.
I’m a better writer as a caffeine addict. Or, at least, a more prolific one. Sigh.
On an up note, I am within 1000 words of finishing a story (not, mind you, the one I have a deadline for), something I have been unable to do in more weeks than I’m comfortable speculating upon.
I hate to say it, but…
I told you so!
Grumble grumble grumble
Sigh. You were right. I was wrong. I can’t function without caffeine. And I certainly can’t write without it anymore.
Pook. I’m an addict.
why would you want to get rid of caffiene? it’s not like it’s bad for you… right?
ps.: the corset icon is from the Frederick’s catalog, ‘swhy it looks so damn good. 😉
Nope, not bad at all. Not counting the blinding headaches and bottomed out metabolism, of course . . .
I wish I could actually drink caffeine but it makes my heart beat too fast. Are you going to do that NaNoWriMo thing? I think you’re one of the few who could actually accomplish the 50,000 word goal- you’re dedicated. 🙂
Hmm. 50,000 words in 30 days. That’s . . . 1667 words a day. Eek. Scary. No.
People keep asking me when I’m going to write a novel-length work, and I keep scampering off to hide under the covers. One day, I will bump myself up into the novel-writing arena. But, err, not yet. I find the commitment too intimidating.
i’m signed up for nanowrimo, and i feel relatively insane. if nothing else the 1667 words a day plus full load at school and part time job will probably kill me.
but ya gotta have goals. 😉
You should try the 3-Day Novel competition next time Labor Day rolls around. I think I topped out at just over 10k in one day.
Of course, those “novels” tend to be in the long-novelette to novella range. Which seems to be my maximum wordage, at least for now.
Hmm. 10K a day for three days. Well, it sounds possible, although a bit on the insane side. Actually, that might be a good way to crank out a YA novel . . .
