One thousand a day keeps the doctor away

1000 words that is.

Yes, I find that setting myself a daily target helps me to progress with writing. One thousand words roughly equates to three pages on Microsoft Word (size 12 font), which I think is a rather good going! When I exceed that many words, then I am a happy bunny!

Of course, I do not always write a thousand words per day. Some days, I don’t write at all, but it is always useful to have a personal marker of what I deem to be acceptable/productive when I do write.

A target also gives me something to work towards. One thousand words is quite a realistic daily target to reach, though still an admirable one. Without it, there would be no driving force spurring me on. As much as I like writing, I need a target to help me along.
