I'm actually surprised I managed 5000 words today. (Well, 5098, to be exact.) And two scenes just popped out of nowhere. Funny thing is, they work, and they advance the plot and characters where I didn't know they needed advancing, and WOW is this ever fun.
I didn't even write all of my free time today. I'm gonna try to get more writing done tomorrow.
And I even managed to finish my essay, too! This is going much better than I'd hoped.
