Few things are more obvious to a writer than the following statement. If I could write five thousand quality words a day, it would change my life.
This idea isn't new, but it has been with me all day. And it’s as magical as lightsabers, warp drive, chocolate, or an endless supply of coffee.
So let me say it again.
If I could write five thousand quality words a day, it would change my life.
What are some barriers to this goal?
First Steps Toward 5k a Day
Today I'm going to share three simple steps that can help increase writing productivity. There are a ton of books, blogs, and experts on this subject. You can spend hours or weeks or months researching it or you can just listen to me and get started.
The bulk of my new word count goal will be fiction, but I believe two thousand to five thousand words a day will also allow me for some room to blog. Please look forward to further discussion of this topic another's and leave comments. I would love to know what other people are doing to achieve their goals.
Thanks for spending some time here on my blog and if you enjoy listening to podcasts and YouTube interviews, please check out www.KeystrokeMedium.com (where Josh Hayes and I talk about reading, writing, and everything in between.)
Have a great day!

Life is an adventure. I read to expand my horizons and write because I must.
