So I'm writing a novel. It's been something I've been doing on and off for a few years now. I only just recently began taking it seriously. I peaked at around 1200 words a day and now I float around 300-700. A friend of mine is doing a 30 day trial where he writes and exercises for the next 30 Days, always meeting a set quota. I recently read a blog where a woman managed to pull in 10k words a day. I've originally had a finish date of October 10 (my birthday) for my novel but I pushed it back to Christmas as I kept procrastinating. I am now convinced I can still pull off the October 10th. I am aiming for 100,000 words and I have 7000ish already done. How do you increase writing productivity? I am very intent on doing this and people trying to discourage me only makes me more determined.
