I like the Stephen Fry/Freeman ones but after listening to Adams read them they just don't feel as good. Apparently Hemingway wrote between and words a day and Stephen King has claimed to write words a day. Many lesser known or unpublished writers who blog claim word counts anywhere in the range of to words a day with being the average.
