I've set myself a goal (reasonable to be sure) of 500 words a day. Not a hell of a lot, but when I only get two hour stints between bottle times, most of which I use for sleep, I thought it would be a motivator. In fact, it is now 1:00 a.m. and I have already written 500 words. 508 to be exact. So, I've reached the goal for today. Anything else is pure gravy.

Given the presence of a newborn, I think you're doing damn well to get down 500 words a day.

Do you believe that somewhere I read that Naomi Novik writes 6000 words a day. If I added words written on my job and creative writing and the words that came out of my mouth, I wouldn'e equal that.
