  1. Awesome list, Lucy. 😀
    Sometimes I wring out the words, sometimes a gentle squeeze is sufficient; at other times the words run like a bat out of hell.
    Have a fab Saturday!

      1. Whenever I’m writing, my wife is worried that I’m going to break the keyboard… it can get pretty vicious, and I’m not even aware of it. Maybe I need to lower mine. 🙂

  2. Yesterday I wrote 10,000 words. What kind of adjective is best used to describe that? Aha! I’ve got one! I OCD’d 10,000 words. That’ll do it. 😀

    Great post! Timely topic. 🙂

      1. When you type 90 words a minute and the words just keep coming, hours fly by. The words don’t always do that to me, and I can’t vouch for the quality, but–hey…it’s 10,000 words. 🙂

  3. Pounded out sounds about right with me, especially when I’ve gotten on a roll. I’m surprised my keyboard survives sometimes!
