Writing goals …mine is 1,000 words per day 🙂 Great post!

We like to get stuff done. Nothing better than checking something off a list, shutting a computer with everything finished, or collapsing on the couch after getting all that stuff you needed to get done, done.

Writers like to know that they are finished for the day. The edits that needed to be made were made, they finished that chapter, they finished that outline, they finished their word count.

Word count. These are the golden words of the day. WORD COUNT.

You’ve heard it before. You need to set a word count for the day. You set it so you get stuff done. We’re writers, and we are supposed to write, and hopefully more than two sentences, so we give ourselves a word count to fill up.

But….is it necessary? *some voices in the back disagree*

Ahem. Yes. *some voices in the back boo*
