Great post today on Story Empire by Staci Troilo – how many words do authors write in a day?
Ciao, SEers. Happy Wednesday!
I’m in a great mood as I write this. Although I’m not participating in NaNoWriMo, I’ve been putting up some impressive word counts this month. True, I was highly motivated (I wanted to—needed to—finish my WIP to move onto other things), but my pace even surprised me. There were two days where I wrote over 9,000 words. I had 10,000 in my sights, but one day I had to stop for an appointment and the other day? Well, I finished the draft, so there was nothing more to write.
I bring this up because I thought you might be interested in increasing your own daily word count. I went from 100 hard-fought words a day to almost 10,000. I’m no math whiz, but even I know that’s a heck of an improvement. Could I have written more than 100…
