>If you write 750 words every day for a year, you’ll have written . . . [stops to calculate] . . . 273,750 words, which is WAY longer than a novel. In fact, it’s like 3 novels, almost 4. But 750 words isn’t very much. It’s about 3 double-spaced pages. You can do it! Hell, even I can do it. Most days.
I wrote 1000 words today, amidst everything else I needed to get done. It wasn’t on my novel though. It was on a book review I was asked to write (that I need to cut down some, so a few of those words will evaporate). But still. I wrote a bunch of words.
And the reason I even bring this up is that I just joined this website called 750 Words. It feels a little like NaNoWriMo, where you keep track of daily output for the month of November so that you complete a “novel” in one month. At this site, you write on the page provided, it keeps count, and you get points for having completed you daily total, a little pat on the back that is probably actually helpful–it’s more than you get if you’re just sitting in your room writing.
Anyway. Seems like a good thing. Check it out.
