The truth is, sometimes it *is* about quantity. Even in writing, heck, especially writing. If we only wrote when we were really "feeling it," our muse on our shoulder giving us words of perfect inspiration, we'd never finish a work. That's why I think what fellow blogger and writer Megan Rebekah did was both brave and industrious. She challenged herself to write 10,000 words on Saturday. As I understand it, this is not the first, nor will it likely be the last time she does this.
Even if you don't end up keeping HALF of your words from that day, you've still got the other 5,000, which is a heck of a lot more than I usually get out in a day. So the next Saturday my husband takes the kids to the in-laws, I plan to take the challenge.
Until then, I'm writing tonight, and will probably make it to 1,000, and that's not too bad for a normal day.
How do you write? Do you have a deadline for your WIP? A plan to reach that goal?
