Monday Craft Tips #10: How much should you write a day?

Many writers recommend that you complete a certain number of words each day to get to the goal of finishing your novel.

I am sure this advice works for many people, but strangely enough it doesn’t work for me.

Instead, I try to carve out two to three hours each day to focus on my writing by using a timer or my iphone. I input the number of hours, set it on my desk, and start working.

I don’t predetermine exactly how much of the manuscript I’m going to cover, because that just seems to focus on quantity at the expense of quality.Instead, I do my time and then stop, knowing that I have really focused on trying to make the novel better.
