Power Out

Snowstorm last night, and this morning a power outage. No big thing, power is back on now, but I lost a whole morning of work, and that's not good. I am stressed out enough as is with all the stuff on my plate, and every lost hour hurts. If only I did not need to sleep...

POSTSCRIPT. This post is being misunderstood. I lost hours, not words. With the power out, I could not turn on my computer. (Well, actually, I had a backup power source, so I ran off that for a while, but the outage was long enough so that eventually that shut down as well).

Words per day
Hi Mr. Martin, I am a huge fan. I am currently writing my first fantasy novel and I was wondering if you had a definitive word count you have to hit per day in order to move along smoothly. Currently, with rewriting and such, I'm currently trying 1000 words a day, what with jobs and so forth.

Unrelated to that, how do you manage to come up with so many interesting names? An odd question I know, but you have so many characters all named fantastically.

Thank you for your work, and BTW Blackwater was amazing.

Re: Words per day
He's said before he usually counts pages, not words. But as a writer myself, I think 1k is a great goal. Best of luck to you :)
