I can make 6000 on a good day, but that's usually reserved for once I'm past 40k, because I sure like hell don't want to write the day after such a sprint.

i'm thinking someone who writes the 50k in one day knows exactly where their story is going and what they want to write. they're also probably a planner, of which i'm about 5% planner XD

They also need a hellish typing speed. Even if I calculate a whoppin' 16 hours (which isn't that unreasonable if all you ever do is write, quickly sip some water, write, munch a leftover candy bar, write and go to the toilet, and oh, did I mention write) then you're still at 3125 words per hour. Not entirely impossible, but show me someone who can keep up such high speed for a whole day. Hello wrist and finger pain.

yeah, one of the people on one of the NaNo facebook group i'm on said pretty much the same thing, but i don't think he said anything about the toilet! :O

no, the most i've written in a day was 5295, and that's only because i knew where the story was going. XD

<x'} Lol, accurate!

Also couldn't write 50K if my life depended on it. e~0;
I think the closest I could ever get is 46,000 in the span of 3 days!
I pumped out a 19K one act though in one day. :] Eeyeh?? *shrug*

right, my shortest NaNo was in 2016, with 50,366 words, which i finished on the 20th

my longest was my first one, in 2011. it was 65,020 words (finished on the 28th, but i got to the 50k mark on the 21st.)

i set my own internal challenges, and for most of the years i've done NaNo the dates line up: i try to have the word count by thanksgiving; and i try to have it finished by the 30th.

this year, with thanksgiving being as late as it can be (the 28th) my goal was to have the word count by the week before. (as it was i had the word count by the 16th and finished it on the 20th.

one of the goals of NaNo is to get you to write something every day. if you only write 1667 words each day, you'll have the word count by the 30th. i issued myself another challenge this year - consistently try to write MORE than the 1667 daily words. the only days (there were three of 'em) that i was less than 1667 words was after i already had the word count.

i'm a dork, i do a lot of playing with spreadsheets for these numbers. ;)
