Well, here you go. S.L. Viehl (one of her many nom de plumes) has announced on her Paperback Writer blog that she is unofficially entering National Novel Writing Month this year -- and she's setting a personal goal of 2000 words/day.
That's right, dear reader. Two thousand words. A day. That's about 400 over the minimum to win NaNoWriMo.
And what's more, she'll do it. Oh yes she will.
If you follow PW, which I do, this woman is a fiend. She's more than able to hit 4500 words a day, and she does a lot of this via Dragon Naturally Speaking because she's got some hand/wrist issues.
