This short story began its journey as a submit for an anthology. It didn’t make it, but I received very positive feedback on how it was not quite the right fit for the anthology’s theme. After a year or so, I revisited the file. It went through a couple of professional editors. Then I decided to give it a chance through Amazon’s Select program. The reception could not have been better. I’m getting 4-5 starred reviews; people are actually reading the story and liking it. So it’s been a good journey so far.

I’ve heard a lot about writing to a daily word count or page count. In my opinion, that is okay if, A) You’re a full time author and B) You’re okay with it.

It is definitely not my case. With my currently day job, writing time is very sparse so I really need to make the most out of it. I have a daily goal, just not in word-count. For me it is more integral to the story: A chapter, a scene, etc. The only time I set a page count goal is when rewriting and revising. There I force myself to do a page count so I can estimate how long it is going to take. This is useful when writing against a deadline.
So, learn that you can be flexible on how to set your goals. Now, once the goal is set, you have to do everything to reach that goal.
