Meeting a word count is very much a writer problem, especially during November.
Here’s I do it:
- I repeat myself. I say something two or three times. I am very redundant. I make one point using different words over and over again.
- I do not use contractions. I may sound stiff and awfully formal, but it is what it is.
- I keep writing. I don’t let my fingers stray from the keyboard until I hit a certain number of words or write for a specific amount of time.
I expect a dozen thank you’s in the comments section below.
Not really. I don’t even expect one.
I take no responsibility for any adverse effects as a result of following my advice.
Besides I hate repeating myself, I use contractions, and my fingers stray when I reach for my lovely mug.
