1. It took me 27 hours, 17 minutes to write 50,173 words.
2. My average fiction writing session was 22 minutes long, and my longest session was 1 hour, 12 minutes. That longest session happened on November 29, which is when I reached 50K.

not by much. And I even got some poetry-writing and blogging in as well!
