Why writing 10,000 words a day is BS.
Evgeni Asenov

This is so important! 10,000 words is an insane goal, and I’m glad you called it out. There is something to be said, though, for hitting a (reasonable) word count every day without worrying about quality, especially when writing fiction. Worrying about making something good every day is also a good way to burn out, since some days good words just don’t come. It’s all balance, and whatever works best for you.
