With this novel I’m working on (and proudly 25,000 words into!) I keep thinking one question: how many words/pages/hours a day is enough?
Right now, my goal is 35,000 words in one month, about 1,166 a day. Some days I write 4,000, other days 0. It usually winds up evening out, especially on long weekends like this where I have so much time to myself.
What is your daily writing goal? Does it help to have a goal, or do you just get depressed when you don’t meet it? How do you feel about setting a low goal so that, no matter what, you usually surpass it?
Additionally: are there times, places, or days that you write better? Are you a bourbon-at-hand, sitting-at-home writer, a coffee at a cafe writer, a procrastinator writer, or some other type?
