New Year’s Resolutions

I only have two:

Produce 3000 words of serviceable fiction per week this year.

Keep these blogs going, whatever it takes.

What are yours?

Word Count or Time Count?

– This is an interesting question. I think setting aside the time is more important than a specific number of words, and I try not to look at the word count until I am done with a writing session. That said, I obsess about the number of words I am producing, too. My goal for the next year is to average 500 words of fiction per day. For me that means writing at least 800 per day, because I tend to overwrite everything, so the first thing I have to do in revision is cut about a third of the draft.
