Tend to agree with BB. I'm sure you can physically turn out 8000, 15000, or indeed more words by Friday but at what cost to quality. Yes you may well finish, but the question is will it be any good? I think unless the writing in question necessitates great swathes of (easy to write) descriptive content the answer will be probably not.
At the end of my thesis writing up period, I was writing about 1000 words of text per day (9am -5pm). I type quick (at about 50wpm), and felt drained afterwards. I think 15,000 words in 4 days is a high target and will probably require a few late nights, and will necessitate some serious relaxing afterwards.
It's definitely possible if you can actually stay focussed during the 4 days. For my honours dissertation I wrote 15,500 words in two days and got an 'A' for it and a first overall. But then I find that I work much better when under serious pressure - for some reason I focus a lot better in this way. BUT I never found anybody like that apart from me in my entire undergraduate degree. Some people write a lot better in bursts (ie 1000 words one day then nothing, then 3,000 another day etc.), while others seem to prefer the consistant approach (ie 500 words a day every day). Are any of these your usual approach? Either way, let us know how you get on! :)
