Hi guys. I have always been a mood writer and therefore my story usually progresses at a sometimes frantic, and at other times lacklustre pace. However, recently I have decided that I would like to establish a more consistent method when it comes to my writing so that I can continuously produce something and feel like I am progressing. Due to this want for consistency I have set myself a goal to try and write a minimum of 500 words a day. I know it isn't much but I figure at least I am writing each day then, even on the days that I do not feel like writing, and then on the days I do feel like writing I can continue past my daily goal and write a chapter or two given the right mood. I was wondering if any of you have daily writing goals or short term goals you set yourself when working on a project and whether having them helps you to get more done or if you find it too constricting and therefore it hinders your progress instead? Also I want to see what methods other writers use in case any of them would work better for me then establishing a minimum word count per day.
