Wordcount Goals and Life After Nano (1 Viewer)


Senior Member
One of the most important things that NaNo taught me is that wordcount goals and deadlines are what I need in order to write!

SO I have incorporated a daily wordcount goal of 1200 words and an 80 day deadline for the writing of the first draft of my novel.

Now I know that these goals are pretty light compared to the ones for Nano but I have good reason for this. I wrote about it on my blog.

I will be keeping track of my progress on my blog, and I am excited to get this project flowing. It starts tonight!

Thank You NaNoWriMo!


Light? I was thinking that's a bit heavy for a daily word count goal, but do as you like. :) Good luck.

Well it is light compared to NaNo.. also compared to a few other writers I see online it is incredibly light.

Although it is becoming a tough goal to keep. I am barely making the quota and I am playing catch up this weekend. But it feels good.

I am writing again, and I love it!
