Trying to Set a Routine

Tonight I wrote again. I didn't get a multitude of words on the page, but I did write. I told myself I need to try and write almost every night so I don't lose my direction. It felt good to write tonight. I started doing the math--because I'm a calculations nut--and discovered if I just wrote 1,000 words every night, I could get my first draft done by the first of February. That's pretty attainable in my eyes. Some nights I only get 500 words, but other nights I get 2,000+. Right now, I'm in the middle of chapter nine with over 16,000 words. I'd like to get 100,000 words in a rough draft and then go back and edit the hell out of it. It feels like a science experiment...
