I participate in a few writing communities during the year to encourage my word count and have a goal to work toward. One of them is May You Write Your Novel, with the goal of writing 80,000 words in 80 days. (It began on May 1st and runs through July. I believe it’s still open to sign up, though you’ll have a lot of catching up to do.)
It’s going swimmingly for me. I hit 32,000 words in May and I’ve managed 1000 words a day so far in June. This finished two long-standing WIPs (one long, one short) and started two novella-length stories that are due in August.
Writing, writing, writing. People say, “How can you write every day?” and all I can say is, “How can you not?”
