Working Every Day

I have never really understood the writers obsession with word count.

Until now that is.

Word count is a tool of the trade. It is an excuse to push on to the next hundred, to get those words on the page. It is true that quality wins out in everything. Every page of every book should be high quality work but thoughts are never going to be that until they are on the page.

writing is rewriting but without the pressure of the daily word count would we get those ideas out there at all?
