Phasing Out

I write in bursts. Sometimes it’s 12K words in a weekend, and then nothing for two months. I’m really trying to break that habit! It makes novel writing a long, drawn-out process.

Nanowrimo was a good thing for me. It taught me that I can crank when I need to. I averaged three chapters a day, 35K words in the month of November. But, then I was burnt to a crisp and my house fell down (and I didn’t have any Christmas presents).

Finding a nice middle ground would be awesome. I’m thinking that I’ll shoot for one chapter each day, at least until the creature is born. That may be a little overzealous, but I’m going to try it for a week and let you know how it goes.

Do you guys have daily, weekly, monthly writing goals? Or do you just let it happen when your muse strikes?
