I've tried to write every day, and I can keep it going for a month or two, but that's it. Eventually, I burn out, and then I'll go a long time without writing.

I've found that setting a monthly goal of something like 30,000 words works better for me. That comes out to 1,000 words a day, but I don't have to write every day if I just don't have it in me.

I didn't quite meet that goal this last year. I wanted 360,000 words a year, and I came in at 320,000. Still, that's close enough that I'm not too upset about it.
