How to Write 2000 Words a Day – The Ultimate Guide

December 1, 2012

It’s now well over halfway through National Novel Writing Month, but not too late to talk writing strategy. Although participants in the National Novel Writing month have to produce only 1650 words a day, that’s never been enough for me. I like 2000. This is probably because it’s the number Ray Bradbury gave in one of his books on writing. Stephen King gives that number too, but I heard it from Bradbury first (or read it, as the case happens to be). Whether your write 1650 or 2000, this question remains: why is having a fixed daily goal important? In the words of … well, me: it’s all about rhythm, baby.
