Is it possible to write 10,000 word a day?

An interesting blog in the popular ‘The Thesis Whisperer’ on how to write 10,000 words a day. Before you get too excited and imagine your whole thesis being written in less than 2 weeks and graduating a whole year earlier than expected, it does say that this is only possible if you know exactly what you want to write about first (which in my mind could take several months). It does however contain some really useful advice on writing in general, and the 10,000 words part is more geared towards those getting to the end of the process. It would be interesting to know what those of you who have submitted in the recent past think of the ideas in the blog post.

    Knowing what you want (and have to say) may speed things up but so often we all write our way into understanding as drafting leads t further thinking and further reading and further thinking and further drafting, and so on ….. would we want it any other way?
