The Effect of New Hardware
I was going through my files and Evernotes for The Cerberus Rebellion and I realized that it has been 8 months since I started writing it. Now, what’s really an eye opening is the rate at which I’ve been writing. Between 8/20 and 3/24 (when I bought my new laptop) I had completed 65,000 words. That averages out to a little less than 9,300 words per month, or around 2,300 words per week
Now, on 3/24 I picked up my new laptop and started working. Between 3/24 and today 4/21 I’ve written a total of 27k words, not including the chapters and snippets that I ended up removing from the story. Which factors out to 30k words in a month, or just over 7,500 words per week.
I think it’s really amazing the effect that new hardware can have on your productivity.
