Or maybe the news story is that a software mogul just sold...

If 5,000 words sound like a crazy high number, you’re not alone.
Even when they’re trying to be super productive in their writing, most people generally won’t write more than 2,000 words on a good day.
Yet when I put the pedal to the metal, I can do 5,000 or even more.
How do I do it?
First, I take a few moments to relax. Yes, seriously, I sit in my favorite chair, get comfortable, and relax my entire body.
