…to write at least 500 words a day on the Age of Air or Shattered Vistas, every day at work.
In perspective, that's not that much. I regularly wrote 1500+ words a day when I was working on The Barren Garden (my novel), but it was crazy sometimes, and I wrote it by hand and then typed it into the computer(!). 500 is comparatively easy: all I have to do is sit in front of the computer for half an hour and write.
But getting there can be hard to do. So this is a motivational thing: I promise that I am actually working on these projects. Because now if I don't, I'll look and feel foolish, and the internet will be obligated to deride me.
Optimistically, I'm hoping to pump out 1000+ words a day. The 500 word quota is to make sure I do *something*.
(By the way, chatting about my games/books on my blog or rpg.net does *not* count towards my quota! That's important for inspiration, but it doesn't get me any closer to a final draft.)
