My only quibble about word count sharing is that it can feel like a d**k-measuring contest if you’re not careful. That’s especially true when you have people (like me) who can write all day throwing their numbers up in the faces of those who could only squeak out forty-five minutes to write because they’re raising kids and holding down a job or two.
Instead of focusing on numbers, I’ll ask myself:
- Did I move my story forward today?
- Did I have fun doing it?
Day one was a YES and YES for me. And that’s why I’ll call this a good day at the office. ☺
