Writing 10,000 words ... you must be that good!
Your thoughts flow smoothly and you write with no issues.
I'd be having a hard time if it was me.

If you write so many words a day how can you still produce good writing? Where do you get the ideas from after a while. It must be tiring and frustrating because it's not possible to enjoy writing then.

Not necessarily. I don't write that fast but still enjoy it. It's entirely down to the individual. I think the key is to find your own rules and not feel you have to stick to anybody else's.

I thought it was fantastic. I have found that some time to plan the scene a bit just before you write it does wonders. You're not so focused on what's going to happen, so it helps with worldbuilding when you write because your brain can think of things other than "How is the plot going to progress forward through dialogue?". Anne Rice is a big believer in this and devotes about 15 minutes to daydreaming at the computer before each writing session. Gotta get those creative juices flowing!

Ah daydreaming, yes I can do that very well :)
