Small post, Small goal

I have a new fool-proof word goal: One word per day.

I'm really going for a no pressure goal here. Of course, at one word per day a 70,000 word novel will take approximately 192 years. The good news is that this will free up LOTS of time to discover extreme longevity.


  1. I am in love with this post. One word per day is the ultimate goal.

  2. This reminds me of a blogger I ran across the other day that was writing a twitter post at a time. :) Longevity indeed!!

  3. I'm not sure finishing a year of writing and only having 365 words to show for it is sustainable in the long term--at least not for me--but it sure would be satisfying putting the finishing touches on that 192 year-old novel.

    At what rate are you planning to revise? :)

  4. You are so funny. I'm reading this at 12:43am, which might have something to do with why I find it so funny. Nonetheless, I'm laughing :) I think I could totally critique a word a day. "Island" gets a thumbs up.
