word quotas

I can't believe how much this word quota is getting my butt in the chair. Without it, there's no way I would've opened up my laptop and written as I watched the fireworks on TV. I've got no money riding on this, just pride: I made a vow to write 350, four days a week and since I'm quite the procrastinator, if I don't write today, tomorrow, and Sunday, I'll miss my mark the first week out of the gate. So I wrote.

Happy 4th!! Hope you had as inspiring a time watching the fireworks as I did.
Two ideas for future posts: what makes a book "chick lit", and is the very term sexist? And trying to get my hubby to fulfill his writing goals.

Yay, Bug! Keep going!

I'm interested to see how you feel about "chick lit." I want to more deeply understand why I shy away from certain books and am attracted to others (I shy away from things I label "chick lit").

Your word quota is 350 a day? Do you find that you go over it sometimes? And do blogs count?

Thanks for your comments!

Ferocious, I do go over sometimes (which is a good thing, of course!) I don't count blog entries, just writing towards a short story or essay.

I'll get on that chick lit post, now that I know someone is looking for it!

I haven't started trying yet. Tonight's the night: 250 words!
