Word Count Goals
This goal is often daily, but can also be a weekly, monthly or even a yearly goal.
The point of this goal is to pick a target number of words that the writer wants to have written in the time frame chosen. The common word count goal is to write 1,000 words a day. During the month of November, those participating in nanowrimo have the goal of 50,000 words in that month and that equates to 1667 words per day.
I have often tried to get a certain number of words per month on projects, but I'm beginning to think I should try a different approach.
This goal is similar to word counts in timeframe, but the difference is the number of words written doesn't matter. The goal is to write a certain number of chapters in a given project/book.
I am going to try this starting in December.
