I've read that Ernest Hemingway limited himself to exactly 500 words per day. I try to get at least 1000 myself. Every day, seven days a week.
How about you?
And do you think word count is ever an indicator of quality? Is it probable to crank out, say, 5000 words a day and still produce something that's worth reading?
:-) I love it. I'm the same way. Probably owing to a background with periodicals.
The faster I write the better my output...
I love it when the words flow effortlessly, but in my experience those explosive surges of language tend to require more editing later. So either way, you have to put the time in to make it right.
